The Prescott High School Boys Basketball team will finally get to play its first contest in the new PHS gymnasium this evening.
The undefeated Cardinals (4-0 overall and 3-0 in the Middle Border Conference) were supposed to have this game last week Friday but a snowstorm waylaid those plans. Now PHS will take on Osceola tonight with the tip-off at 7:15 p.m.
Osceola is also undefeated in the MBC at 3-0 and the Chieftains are 3-1 overall. Junior 6-5 wing Haakon Carlson leads Osceola in scoring with 20 points per game and averages seven rebounds per game. Senior 6-3 forward Joe Swanson scores 11 ppg. and grabs eight rebounds per game. Their only loss this season was to Barron 58-52.
PHS doesn't play again until after Christmas. Prescott will take on Farmington, Minn. in the Hastings, Minn. Holiday Classic on Dec. 29 at 5 p.m. the winning faces either Hastings or Irondale, Minn. on Dec. 30 at 7 p.m. in the championship game.
