After an opening game where Madison led almost the entire night against Shelby only to come up one point short 62-61, the Madison Rams will try to get win number one on the new season against what many believe will be the best in the area in rival Mansfield Senior. The Tygers have only been together as a basketball team for two weeks due to the football team's 11-1 playoff run. Many of the Tyger basketballers also played football and are trying to get their basketball legs under them. One person who thinks that will not be a problem is Madison basketball coach Tim Mergel. Mergel believes that the winning attitude that the players had on the football field for the Tygers will carry on over to the basketball court. Mergel also adds that with all the summer ball the Tygers have played the transistion should be smooth. The Tygers won both games against Madison last year 76-27 at Pete Henry, then 66-55 at Wayne E. Miller. The game was closer the second time around because the Rams were able to answer when Senior High scored, which is key according to Mergel saying you have to be able to answer their scoring runs. After Friday, the Rams will head over to Galion to play the Tigers. Because of the Big Ten Championship football game involving 12-0 Ohio State and 11-1 Michigan State, the JV start has been moved from 6pm to 1pm at Galion. The Rams beat Galion a season ago at home 62-44.
