The 1-1 Lexington Minutemen will try to make it two straight victories when they travel to take on 1-1 Wooster in the team's conference opener. The Minutemen split their opening weekend, falling at home to Brunswick 55-49 last Friday, but winning on the road at Willard Saturday 65-53.

Lexington was paced both nights by Matt Barkett who had 11 points Friday, 17 on Saturday. Also in double figures both nights was Joey Zahn who added 23 combined points over the weekend.

Minutemen head coach Scott Hamilton says the Generals return many of the same players from a year ago, when Wooster beat Lexington twice during the regular season. Like Lexington, Wooster split their opening weekend with a 58-41 win over Cloverleaf on Friday, then fell in overtime the following night to Medina Highland 68-64.

The Minutemen will once again play two games over the weekend, hosting Mt.Vernon on Saturday night. The Yellowjackets beat Lexington last season 56-54.
