Last week, the Lexington boys basketball team (2-2, 1-1) split a double weekend falling on Saturday night to West Holmes (3-0, 2-0) on the road 62-52, but winning the night before at home against rival Clear Fork (2-2, 0-1) 56-54.  At the half Lexington trailed the Colts 29-24, with Clear Fork's Keith Corbin throwing in 20 points in the first half.  But in the third quarter Lex shut out the Colts holding them to zero points.  Although Clear Fork scored 25 in the fourth period, the Minutemen came away with a two point win.  Mason Willeke led Lex in scoring both nights with 17 points.

This week, the Minutemen will try to get two as they face Madison (1-2, 0-1) Friday, Galion (1-1) Saturday, both games are at home.  On the Rams, coach Scott Hamilton is familar with most in Madison's starting five in Cory Peterson, Alex Smith, Alec Keen and Kobi Johnson, but does not know too much about freshman big man Zane Harris who scored 12 against Galion in the Rams 62-44 win, with Peterson knocking down 18, four of them three pointers. 

Both Scott Hamilton at Lexington and Tim Mergel at Madison are first year varisty coaches.  Both were JV coaches at their respective schools a season ago.  Heading into week three, Mansfield Senior and West Holmes lead the OCC with 3-0 overall records.
