The Mansfield Tygers will get back on the road again this Friday evening as they take a trip to Millersburg to face West Holmes.  Both the Tygers and Knights are 6-2 overall and both are undefeated in OCC play with the Knights at 4-0, the Tygers 3-0, with the winner having a leg up in the conference to start the new year. 

The game features two of the best point guards around in Mansfield's Keon Johnson and the Knight's Brady Arnold.  West Holmes's size will also be something the Tygers will have to contend with.  The Knights have Brock Macauley and Donnie Dowling at 6'6".  Gabe Synder at 6'5" with Ryan Neer and Dylan Wengerd both at 6'4".  The Tygers will look to answer that size with two big men of their own in forward Donovyn Benson and Robert Jones, both 6'6".  Tyger coach JT Reese, says the Knights are one of those teams that can play outside with Arnold, or inside with their big guys.

The Tygers are coming off a 55-44 OCC win at Ashland last Friday, while the Knights fell by a point last weekend to New Philadelphia 59-58.  Last season, Mansfield took two from West Holmes winning in overtime at Millersburg 73-64, then winning at Pete Henry in February 74-61.
