Panther JV team falls to Muskies
MUSCATINE — The Mt. Pleasant JV boys’ basketball team struggled at the start of its Friday night game against Muscatine and couldn’t come back from an early deficit, losing by a score of 68-46.
“We didn’t start the game well and Muscatine shot well,” Coach Tyler Rodgers said. “They put us in a hole we couldn’t ever get out of.”
Nike Phillips led the Panthers with 13 points and Nathan McConnell added eight.
The next game for all the Panther boys’ basketball teams is Friday.
They will host Southeast Conference opponent Keokuk in a freshman/JV/varsity tripleheader starting at 4:45 p.m.
