Waukon boys basketball team wins one of three during busy week

The Waukon boys basketball team book-ended its past busy week of three games with a pair of losses at home, sandwiching a road win in between those two losses. The basketball Tribe’s busy week began with a split of back-to-back nights of competition against non-conference opponents, first falling at home to Spring Grove, MN, 75-64, Monday, January 29 before reversing that fortune, 79-48, for a win at MFL/MarMac Tuesday, January 30. The Indians wrapped up the week with an 84-69 loss at home to NEIC-undefeated Charles City Friday, February 2. Adding to the list of losses for the basketball Indians this past week was the confirmation that senior Mitchell Snitker will not be available for the remainder of the season due to a knee injury.

The results of the Tribe’s busy week leave the Indians’ season record at 11-7 overall, including a Northeast Iowa Conference (NEIC) mark of 6-4 that leaves the Tribe in third place in the latest NEIC standings. The basketball Indians were next scheduled for another busy week to wrap up their regular season, hosting South Winneshiek Monday, February 5 (a game that has now been postponed to Thursday, February 8 due to winter weather). The Waukon boys are also scheduled to play at Decorah Tuesday, February 6 and at New Hampton Friday, February 9.

The Tribe will then begin postseason tournament play Thursday, February 15 at home against either Jesup or North Fayette Valley, beginning at 7 p.m.
