Tonight on the final Friday night of January, a huge Boys Basketball contest will take place inside Seedorff Gymnasium at West Delaware High School as our featured game will be the Class 3A 2nd-ranked 13-0 Hawks hosting the 6th-rated 10-3 Mount Vernon Mustangs. It’s a match-up as well of the 1st and 2nd place teams in the WaMaC East division with the Hawks sitting at 8-0 while the Mustangs are 7-1. Hawks head coach Matt Uthoff knows it should be an electric atmosphere:

WD won the first meeting in Mount Vernon back on Dec. 16th, 62-46.

Coach Uthoff says while his team will of course be focused on the task at hand tonight, they will get a glimpse this afternoon of what the postseason has in store:
