After a rough weekend last Friday and Saturday dropping games to Wooster 81-51 and Mansfield Senior 53-41, the Lexington boys basketball team will look to bounce back this weekend against 2-9, 1-6 Orrville, then travel to 7-5, 3-3 Clear Fork on Saturday.  Though the Minutemen 8-5, 3-3 now find themselves two games back of front running Senior High, the weekend is still big.  Coach Scott Hamilton says with the ssecond half of the season starting up, every game is important seeding wise with the tournament draw coming up in three weeks on February 10th.

On Clear Fork Saturday evening in Bellville, a team Lex beat the first time around 56-54, Hamilton feels the Colts are playing much better now than at the beginning of the season.  Clear Fork has won five of their last six including their last two over Ashland and non-league Ontario.  Hamilton says the Colts have started to play better as a team with Keith Corbin, Ridge Winand, Kadin Chrastina and Brandon Luers all scoring threats.

The last time the two teams met, Lex trailed at the half but was able to keep Clear Fork from scoring in the third quarter en route to their two point win.
