(12-7) Iroquois went from ice cold to red hot in January. The Raiders started off with a three game losing streak, but they refocused and revitalized their offense, winning the remainder of their games last month. Iroquois is putting up 71 points a game in their current 4 game winning streak. It will be interesting to see how the raiders fare tonight in their first game in February against the talented (19-5) Pleasure Ridge Park Panthers.
PRP is fresh off a dominating victory over Seneca, as they crushed the Redhawks by 47 points at home. This will be a battle of two sixth region teams. The Panthers are currently 11-1, 2nd place in region play and the raiders are stuck in the middle of the pack with a 3-5 record. The two teams are very well coached and play a similar style of basketball. Up tempo when the opportunity presents itself but both squads are comfortable running the majority of their offense in the half-court. Game time is 7:30pm at Iroquois high school.
