Key home tilts for Mustangs, Tigers
Looking to get back onto the winning track, front-running Medina hosts rival Albion at 6:30 p.m. Thursday in a key Niagara-Orleans League boys basketball game.
Medina (10-1), which had a season long 10 game N-O win streak snapped at Wilson on Tuesday (75-64), now holds a slender one game lead over Roy-Hart (9-2) in the tight league title chase. Roy-Hart hosts Newfane on Thursday.
Medina bested Albion by a 56-41 margin in their earlier meeting at Albion while Roy-Hart nipped Newfane 62-61.
The Purple Eagles are 5-6 in N-O action after downing Barker 65-48 Tuesday to snap a four game losing streak.
The Mustangs are seeking their first N-O title since the 2008-09 season while the Rams are looking to end a 20 year league title drought.
Lyndonville faces an equally key home contest as the Tigers host Notre Dame at 7 p.m. Thursday.
Lyndonville, which is chasing once beaten Elba in the race for the Genesee Region League Division 2 title, is now 10-2 and 14-4 overall.
The Irish outlasted the Tigers 92-79 in their earlier season meeting at Batavia.
Lyndonville, which has won eight G-R games in a row, will then host Elba on February 9 to close out the regular season.
