The United boys varsity basketball team had an eventful week of basketball last week. On Tuesday the Red Storm took on Lincoln Trail Conference rival Abingdon-Avon at Abingdon High School. The game would go back and forth but the Tornadoes held on late to give United the 52-49 loss. The Red Storm would rebound on Friday night however with a thrilling home win over the Ridgewood Spartans in a game that saw United hold on to a 76-72 win in double overtime.
Head Coach Doug Dennison had high praise for his team’s offensive performance against Ridgewood, and singled out 2 players who came up big in the important conference win.
The Red Storm currently sit at 10-11 overall and 3-3 in LTC play but have a chance to continue improving that record when they take on Princeville on Tuesday night, then a rematch with the Princes in the first round of the Lincoln Trail Tournament on Thursday.
