Prep Basketball: Mount Pleasant Battles Keokuk in Home-and-Home

KILJ — In the Southeast Conference tonight, the Mount Pleasant boys’ and girls’ basketball teams will take on Keokuk in a home-and-home affair.

The girls’ will be at Mount Pleasant while the boys’ will travel to Keokuk.

Tonight marks the first action of the week for both teams, who have had ample time to get their legs right before the stretch run.

Mike Davis’ Keokuk girls’ are 12-3 on the year and are currently ranked No. 11 in Class 4A in the latest IGHSAU poll.

They took down Mount Pleasant 73-40 earlier this year but the Panthers have won four of five — their best stretch of the year.

Both games tonight will begin at 7:30 p.m.
