Close games are often good for a team. Now, the Monticello High School boys basketball team just has to find a way to win them.
The Panthers (7-8, 9-11) had two games in River Valley Conference play last week, losing a hard-fought battle at Cascade by two points on Jan. 31, and a Senior Night home game against Tipton by one Feb. 3.
“That’s four in about a two-week span,” Lambert said. “It’s good experience for the post-season, other than you don’t feel good about those losses.”
