Titans & J-Hawks Headline Friday’s Hoops Action

Sports Connection

The final three weeks of the NIC-10 boys basketball season will be filled with drama as four teams try to decide the conference championship.

The first big game will take place Friday night at Jefferson. The J-Hawks will host Boylan.  Those are two of the teams in the running for the championship. Boylan beat Jefferson 56-54 December 8 at Boylan. That was on the Titans’ court. The J-Hawks are happy to be at home this time. They know what this game means to the conference race.

“The conference race is what it is, but we can’t worry about what the other teams do,” says Jefferson coach Todd Brannan. “We don’t want to be sitting there late Friday night hoping somebody else loses. Let’s just take care of business and control the things that we can control.”

“I feel like we really shouldn’t have lost (any games) with the team that we have,” says Jefferson forward MyQuion Garrett. “Our games that we’ve lost are just off of one thing just swinging the ball and not playing defense. It’s a three-way tie. We’ve got to come out on top.”

At the moment Boylan, Jefferson and Auburn are all 9-2 in the NIC-10. Rockford East is 8-3.
