Upcoming Games for Rock Valley North/South This Week

East Troy (13-0) at McFarland (10-3)  - Game of the Week

Thursday, February 7th 7 p.m.

East Troy looks to stay perfect on top of the Rock Valley North as they face their toughest conference opponent all year.  The Trojans last win was on Saturday as they beat Beloit-Turner handedly 74-55.  Nate Dodge will lead his team into a hostile environment at McFarland, as the Spartans are only 3 games back on the conference lead.  The Prahl brothers will have their hands full with 6’6 Cory Frank of McFarland.

McFarland needs a win tonight to not only inch closer to East Troy at the top of the standing but also for a confidence booster.  The Spartans lost their last game 59-53 against lowly Evansville (6-7) and getting a win against East Troy tonight will give them momentum going into post-season play.  The Spartans will need all of Cory Frank’s big frame tonight as East Troy not only has talented guards but two twin towers down low with the 6’7 Prahl brothers.


Evansville (6-7) at Jefferson (7-6)

Thursday, February 7th 7 p.m.

Evansville comes into this game with a big chip on their shoulder, knocking of powerhouse McFarland earlier in the week, 59-53.  Though the Demons are second to last in the North standings, they have been playing very well of late and beating Jefferson would give them momentum at the end of the season.  Leading scorer for the Demons is big man Owen Schoenenberger averaging 12 points per game.

Jefferson looks to keep their winning ways going, looking to get a second straight win Thursday night.  The Eagles beat Whitewater in a close game last Friday, 45-43 and beating a tough Evansville team would bring them closer to a third place finish in the conference.  The Eagles are lead by sophomore forward Vinny Cincotta, averaging 10 points per game.
