At 2-4 in all games 0-2 in conference, the Madison Rams will try to get their first win in OCC play this Friday when they host the 2-5, 1-2 Wooster Generals. Wooster may not have the best of records, but they did push undefeated Norwalk who has not lost a regular season game since February of 2011, to the brink in a 62-59 loss. Madison coach Tim Mergel says the Generals who are big down low at 6'6" and 6'7" can cause big match up problems, plus you can never tell what Wooster team will show up. Mergel adds if it's the good team you could be in for a long night. On Monday of this week, the Rams began practicing inside their new gymnasium located at the new junior high, which is within walking distance from Madison High School. The new gym has three full size basketball courts and seats between 1,800 and 2,000 people. The Rams are scheduled to play their first game in the new building on Saturday, January 11th vs Lexington. Madison athletic director Kirk Manns says by the 2014-'15 season the new facility will be able to host OHSAA tournament games.
