Oskaloosa Boys Basketball Looks To Make A Statement In Second Half

Oskaloosa Indians

by Jamie Brockman

Once again the boys Little Hawkeye Conference features a tight race at the top coming out of the holiday break.

Indianola, Norwalk, and Pella are each 4-1 in conference games while Oskaloosa is at 3-2. Technically, Norwalk is the leader, as they beat both Indianola and Norwalk with their lone loss coming to Pella. Even with losses to Norwalk and Pella heading into the break, Oskaloosa is undoubtedly in the hunt to defend their title from a year ago.

Osky heads to Indianola right out of the break this Friday night and will have rematches with Norwalk at home on January 29 and travel to Pella February 1. Pella, Norwalk, and Indianola will all play each other again in the second half of the season also, so if Oskaloosa can find their groove, it’s a question of who wants it most, but with four teams fighting for the LHC title, it’s sure to be exciting every night out.

Pella leads the LHC in scoring, averaging 78 points per game, then Indianola (66.6) and Norwalk (66.2) while Oskaloosa averages 60 points per contest.

Oskaloosa has worked hard during the holiday break and was very impressive in holiday scrimmages over the break against Class 4A top teams Iowa City West and Waukee and Coach Ryan Parker feels they were able to iron some things out that were causing them troubles and said they’ll be ready to go in 2019.

Osky travels to Indianola Friday night with the girls at 6:5pm followed by the boys. You can hear both games live on Osky News Live powered by Thunder Country KIIC starting at 6 pm.

Indianola 4-1 (7-1)
Norwalk 4-1 (7-3)
Pella 4-1 (6-2)
Oskaloosa 3-2 (7-2)
DCG 2-3 (3-5)
Grinnell 2-3 (4-4)
Pella Christian 1-4 (4-4)
Newton 0-5 (0-7)
