The Monmouth-Roseville Titans boys basketball team gets back on the court Friday night, traveling to Knoxville to take on the win-less Blue Bullets in a Three Rivers Conference vs Lincoln Trail Conference match up. Monmouth-Roseville is coming off a two-game home stretch against two quality opponents. Last Friday the Titans held on to close out a 54-47 win over the Farmington Farmers, before falling to Riverdale on Tuesday. M-R held a 9-point halftime lead over the Rams, ultimately losing 55-49 after a hot second half by Riverdale.

Now sitting at (5-2) on the season, the Titans are looking to get back in the win column over the Blue Bullets. Speaking on the WRAM Morning Show on Friday morning, Titan head coach Jake Sottos says the team is ready to get back on the floor try and put the loss to Riverdale behind them.
