Salem and Olney Lock Horns Tonight

The

Salem Wildcats continue to make headway in the final weeks of the regular

season, even if their record shows mounting losses. Salem is 3-17 overall and

3-5 in the Apollo Conference after last Friday night’s 78-68 Senior Night loss

to Mattoon.

The

Wildcats battled back from double-digit deficits several times in that loss to

the Green Wave, and in a game of streaks and runs, it was visiting Mattoon who

had the final say. Despite the loss, Salem continued to show the resilience

that has been their trademark in this tough 3-17 season. Imagine what they

could do if they led by seven points after the first quarter instead of

trailing by that same amount.

The

Wildcats are in the homestretch of their regular season with only four games

left before the regional tournament. The first of those games is tonight

against the very team they will face in the regional opener in two weeks.

Salem

travels to Olney for a contest with their former conference opponent. Toby

Gullion will join Bill Hawley for this Tuesday night battle between the Wildcats

and the Tigers, beginning at 7:45 on 100.1 FM WJBD and WJBDRadio.com.
