A return to action following the holiday break saw the Waukon boys basketball team play host to a Decorah squad that has its Northeast Iowa Conference (NEIC) season off to an opposite start (2-1) than the Indians’ 1-2 start thus far in NEIC play. That differing start tended to show itself on the court in this initial post-holiday affair for both squads, as the visiting Vikings handed the basketball Tribe a 94-59 defeat behind a three-point sharp-shooting effort that saw Decorah drop in 15 three-point blasts to account for nearly half the Viking point total in the ballgame.

Holding a 2-4 season record that includes a 1-3 mark in Northeast Iowa Conference play, the Indians were also scheduled to take on Jesup Saturday, January 4 in a basketball showcase being hosted by Upper Iowa University in Fayette. Details of that contest and the hoop Tribe’s Tuesday, January 7 non-conference game at Prairie du Chien, WI and Friday, January 10 Northeast Iowa Conference contest at Charles City will appear in the January 15 edition of The Standard. The Indians are then scheduled to play at North Fayette Valley Monday, January 13 before hosting back-to-back nights of competition to end next week, including MFL/MarMac Thursday, January 15 and New Hampton Friday, January 16.
