Panthers to face W-SR in state opener
The Mt. Pleasant boys’ basketball team, seeded sixth this year, opens the state tournament against the No. 3 seed, Waverly-Shell Rock.
That game will be at Wells Fargo Arena in Des Moines on Tuesday at 8:15 p.m.
Both teams played in the tournament last year, but did not face each other.
The Go-Hawks, seeded second last season, were upset in their first-round game against Grinnell.
Grinnell went on to lose to Mt. Pleasant in the second round.
Waverly-Shell Rock, Grinnell, and Mt. Pleasant are three of five teams that are making a return trip to the state capital: Davenport Assumption and MOC-Floyd Valley were also in the tournament last season.
