The Knights’ boys’ basketball team lost for the first time of the season last Tuesday night to #4 state-ranked Battle Lake and then lost again, this time to Long Prairie-Grey Eagle, two nights later. In each of the losses, the Knights shot very poorly from the field while their opponents shot 50 percent or better. The WCA boys bounced back for a nice win, 64-38, over Henning on Friday night.
