The Grantsburg boys take center stage tonight as they host the Hayward Hurricanes. Tip-off is scheduled for 7:15.
Hayward sits in second place in the Heart O’ the North conference with a 7-2 conference record, 2.5 games behind the undefeated Bloomer Blackhawks. The Hurricanes are 8-5 overall.
Watch out for 6′ 1″ Senior guard Phil Zeigle. He is their leading scorer averaging over 20 points per game. Zeigle is joined by Riley Dobbs and Craig Burger in the double-digit scoring average club. After that, nobody has shot more than 42 times all season in 13 games for Hayward. Zeigle scored a season-high 35 against Northwestern on December 19 in a 61-52 win. In that game, he was 7 of 12 from behind the arc.
The Pirates are looking to recover from only their second loss of the season to the still undefeated Clear Lake Warriors on Saturday at the Target Center in Minneapolis. Here’s the replay.
The Pirates are now 13-2 on the season and remain in first place in the West Lakeland Conference one game ahead of Webster.
