It’s the Cardinals hosting the Pirates tonight in West Lakeland basketball double-header action.
Girls (5:45 tip)
Luck is coming off a loss to a previously winless Webster squad. The final score of that one was 57-32, obviously not what the Cardinals were hoping for heading into that game. Luck is now 2-7 in the conference and 5-10 overall. Luck is looking to snap a five-game losing streak tonight.
Grantsburg is 4-5 in the conference, which puts them in fourth place, half a game behind Frederic. Their overall record, though, is 6-10. The Pirates beat the Cardinals in their earlier matchup in Grantsburg 53-41.
The Pirates have been struggling since they got off to a 5-3 start, only winning one game in their last seven.
Should be an even matchup tonight from Luck.
Luck is coming off a tough loss to the Webster Tigers on Tuesday – final score 62-53. With the loss the Cardinals dropped to 4-4 in the West Lakeland and 9-6 overall. The loss to the Tigers broke a seven-game win streak for the Cardinals.
In the first meeting between the Pirates and the Cardinals, the game ended with Grantsburg winning 62-57, but the game was much tighter than that, especially after Grantsburg’s leading scorer John Chenal left the game with an ankle injury (he returned late in the game).
The Pirates are in a good position as they are in first place in the West Lakeland and control their own destiny. They are 7-1 in conference and have a one-game lead on Webster.
