In the boys game, the Irish will be hoping to start a brand new winning streak after losing their last time out. Also still among the ranks of the unbeaten are the Wallace Wildcat boys, at 4-0. The Wildcats and Lady Wildcats host Medicine Valley tonight. In other doubleheader action, Mullen makes a trip to take on Garden County. In girls basketball the Gothenburg Lady Swedes will try and get back on the winning track on their home floor against McCook. And in boys action, Paxton hosts Maywood in the opener of Paxton’s Pre-Holiday tournament.
