They’re getting closer. Oskaloosa’s boys’ basketball team is still looking for its first Little Hawkeye Conference win of the season after Tuesday’s (1/28) 43-39 loss to Dallas Center-Grimes. The Indians welcomed Xavier Foster back to the lineup after sitting out for two weeks following a concussion, and the senior center responded with a game-high 18 points. Oskaloosa interim coach DaJuan Foster talked after the game.
“We just made some coaches errors and I’ll take full responsibility for this one. The kids played their hearts out. Time out management and things of that nature towards the end of the game in a tight game is really key and I don’t think I did a really good job of that.”
Oskaloosa’s boys are now 5-9 overall and 0-8 in the Little Hawkeye Conference. The Indians will host Newton on Friday night (1/31).
Likewise, the Indians girls are still looking for their first conference win of the year. Dallas Center-Grimes beat the Indians 63-28. Amanda Fay had 12 points to lead Oskaloosa. The Indians’ girls are 1-13 overall and 0-8 in the conference. Oskaloosa will host Newton Friday night.
