Warrior boys gaining speed as tournament season approaches

By Lenny Sementi

Tuscola’s boy’s basketball team has faced a gauntlet since the new year, facing the likes of state-ranked Shelbyville and Clinton twice, not to mention perennial powerhouses Bloomington Central Catholic and Teutopolis, along with a few others. That power-packed schedule is starting to pay dividends as the state’s third-place team from a year ago is primed for another long postseason run.

This past week proved that point as coach Justin Bozarth’s bunch ran off three wins in five days, capping it off with a big 43-30 win over a very good Altamont team at the NTC/CIC shootout in Warrensburg this past Saturday, Feb. 10. They collected wins number 21, 22 and 23 during the three-game swing moving to 23-5 overall, downing Meridian, and St. Teresa earlier in the week on Tuesday and Friday respectively.
