The Class 3A 2nd-ranked 16-0 West Delaware Hawks will host Class 2A 6th-ranked 14-4 Beckman inside Seedorff Gymnasium. It figures as an important game for the Hawks who are in 1st place with an 11-0 mark on the East side of the WaMaC Conference while the Blazers are 8-4 good for 3rd place. Hawks head coach Matt Uthoff talks about a busy and important week for his squad:
WD’s 16-0 record is the best start in program history since the 1999-2000 team went 24-0 before falling in the 3A title game. The WaMaC conference title for Hawks Boys Basketball would be the first since 2008 and only 9th in program history dating back to 1943. All the coverage on KMCH and KMCH.com will begin around 7:30pm with Sports Director Jon Swisher and Bill Logan.
