Preview: Boy's Basketball Tangles with Chequamegon
Published on 02/03/2020 under Sports The Tomahawk Hatchets boy's basketball team travels tonight to face the Chequamegon Screaming Eagles. The Hatchets (5-11, 1-7) are coming off a string of losses where they have allowed their opponents to score 80 or more points in the last two games, including 84 to Medford in their last contest. They also have struggled as of late from the free throw line, especially their last game where they made just six of their 19 attempts for just over 31%. For the Screaming Eagles (4-9, 2-8) things have been looking up. After losing seven of their first eight games, they have began to turn things around. They have won three of their last five, including two straight victories, with their most recent coming in a 63-48 win over Abbotsford.

However, the Screaming Eagles have three players averaging double-digits in scoring, led by Sophomore Joe Newbury, who is averaging just around 14 points a game. The Hatchets have a bit of the upper-hand in this mini rivalry, winning handedly last season 62-49 and have won five in a row over the Screaming Eagles.
