NFV closed out the 2016-17 UIC boys’ basketball season by splitting a pair of conference games.

The TigerHawks lost to Ed-Co in Edgewood but Saturday in Clermont, they beat West Central handily.

The contest against Charles City scheduled for Thursday in West Union was been postponed until Monday, Feb. 6. The game originally scheduled for Monday against Crestwood had to be cancelled because the Cadets had to reschedule a conference game on that date.

It wasn't looking very promising at the half for the West Central boys’ basketball team as it trailed Central Elkader, 23-10, on Friday, Jan, 27.

A 13-point deficit can be a lot for a team like West Central to overcome, because WC has struggled to put points on the board at times. Against a very beatable Central Elkader team, the Blue Devils rallied in the second half.
