Waukon boys basketball team sweeps pair of make-up dates on the road early in the week, falls to Charles City at home during three-game slate

The Waukon boys basketball team played a busy schedule of three games this past week, the early part of that schedule being filled with make-up games and the lone originally scheduled contest being the only one to end up short of the win column. The Indians opened the week with wins in those two makeup games on the road, besting Postville, 73-48, Monday, February 3 in a season opener rescheduled due to extension of the Waukon football season before also topping Oelwein, 66-57, Tuesday, February 4 in a game postponed from January 24. The bucket Tribe then played host to Charles City Friday, February 7, falling victim to a Comet eruption in the second half to fall by an 85-54 final result. Now holding an 11-7 season record that includes a 4-6 mark in Northeast Iowa Conference play, the bucket Tribe was next scheduled to again play consecutive nights on the road, at South Winneshiek, Monday, February 10, and at Decorah, Tuesday, February 11, before hosting New Hampton Thursday, February 13 to wrap up the regular season. Postseason play is scheduled to begin Thursday, February 20 for the Indians when they host the winner of a February 17 first-round matchup between Crestwood and Oelwein. Details of the Tribe’s postseason possibilities can be found elsewhere on the Sports Pages in the February 12, 2020 print edition and e-edition.
