After falling twice the previous week, the Lexington boy's basketball team got back on track with two wins in OCC play downing both Orrville on Friday, then Saturday stopping Clear Fork in Bellville to improve to 10-5 overall and 5-3 in conference play.  Though Lex may be three games back of front running Mansfield Senior, coach Scott Hamilton says every win is important with the tournament draw in Division II two weeks from Sunday at Bucyrus.

This week the Minutemen go up against Madison at Wayne E. Miller Gym.  Lex won the first time the two teams met in December 51-42.  Although the Rams are 1-12, 0-8 in conference play, Hamilton says they have been playing better as of late.  He also adds he expects Madison to throw everthing at them in search of that first OCC win.  Madison will have to keep an eye on Lex senior guard Mason Willeke who has been on a scoring tear as of late averaging 20 points over his last three games.

Hamilton says Willeke has done a very good job of leading the team.  He added that if Mason does not have a shot, he finds the open man.  After this weekend, the Minutemen face a tough double next weekend hosting West Holmes next Friday, then traveling to Mansfield Senior next Saturday.
