  Knights are Prairie Conference Co-Champs  
  by Kris Beuckens
 

The Knights’ boys’ basketball team had conference games last week at home against Swanville and on the road at Long Prairie. They won, 74-60, over Swanville on Tuesday night to clinch a share of the Prairie Conference Championship and then had a chance to win it outright on Thursday night with a win over Long Prairie-Grey Eagle. Unfortunately, the Knights were not quite able to get that job done as they lost in a very close game, 59-54.

The Knights (11-3, 18-6) and LP-GE (11-3, 19-5) shared top honors in the final Prairie Conference standings. They were followed by Browerville (9-5, 17-9), Swanville (8-6, 14-9), St. John’s Prep (8-6, 9-13), Upsala (6-8, 12-13), Osakis (3-11, 6-20), and Royalton (0-14, 2-22)

This week, the Section 6A playoffs begin. The number two seeded Knights will host the winner of the game between seventh seeded Hancock and tenth seeded Clinton-Graceville-Beardsley on Thursday night at 7:00 p.m. in Barrett. If they win that game, the Knights will then move on to play at UMM in Morris against either Ortonville (third seed) or Henning (sixth seed) on Saturday afternoon at 2:45 p.m.
