Maybe it took playing an unbeaten, confident opponent, or maybe all it took was playing on its home court for a change; but the Pekin boys’ basketball team found its rhythm in the last two weeks by winning three games in a row.
A win over previously unbeaten Columbus Junction on the 10th, 70-44, and a win on the 13th at Lousia-Muscatine, 66-58, bumped the Panthers’ record to 3-1 on the season, before taking down Mediapolis the following week, 48-35, to increase their win total to four.
Despite the three wins in the past two weeks and four in a row overall, the Panthers are still fighting through some bumps in the road.
