The busiest week of its season thus far saw the Waukon boys basketball team remain in the grips of a now six-game non-winning streak, adding four games to that stretch that dates back to nearly a month ago. Those four defeats all came at home on a pair of back-to-back nights of competition, beginning with an 88-41 loss to undefeated Northeast Iowa Conference leader Waverly-Shell Rock Monday, January 9 in a game rescheduled from December 16 and a 71-39 loss to La Crescent, MN Tuesday, January 10 to start the week. Another pair of home losses ended the week, as Crestwood dealt the bucket Tribe a 67-53 loss Friday, January 13 and Monticello did likewise Saturday, January 14 by a 58-36 final result.

Holding a 1-11 season record that includes a mark of 0-6 in Northeast Iowa Conference play, the Indians were next scheduled to play at Prairie du Chien, WI Tuesday, January 17 before traveling to New Hampton Friday, January 20.
