Waukon boys basketball team wins two of three road games, triumphs over Jesup, 74-54, and Prairie du Chien, WI, 66-65, before falling at NEIC-undefeated Charles City by a 67-64 final

The Waukon basketball team played three games within a week’s time this past week, coming up just a few points short of pulling off an undefeated series of those three contests. The Indians handled a single-win Jesup team, 74-54, as part of a basketball showcase at Upper Iowa University in Fayette Saturday, January 4 before also pulling out a 66-65 win at Prairie du Chien, WI Tuesday, January 7. The Indians returned to Northeast Iowa Conference (NEIC) action Friday, January 10, coming close to handing that Comet squad its first NEIC loss of the season, but coming up just shy of doing so, 67-64.

Holding a 4-5 season record that includes a 1-4 mark in Northeast Iowa Conference play, the Indians were next scheduled to play at North Fayette Valley Monday, January 13 before hosting back-to-back nights of competition to end this week, including MFL/MarMac Thursday, January 15 and New Hampton Friday, January 16. The basketball Tribe will then host Spring Grove, MN Monday, January 20 before playing at Oelwein Friday, January 24.
