It had been nearly two full calendar years since Mansfield Senior had lost an OCC game, but Lexington would hand the Tygers their first since February of 2012 on Friday. The 60-49 loss to the Minutemen was also Mansfield Senior's first of the 2013-'14 campaign, a bit of a wake-up call for the previously unbeaten Tygers.

This Friday, Mansfield Senior will once again get a tough road test when they travel to Orrville for a date with the streaking Red Riders. Orrville has racked up 5-straight W's after an 0-2 start, but the Tygers believe bouncing back with a win is less about their opponent and more about simply executing their style.

Mansfield Senior suffered their worst shooting performance of the season in the loss to Lexington, connecting on an abysmal 30% of their shots from the field. The team believes they will shoot much better against the Red Riders if they play their up and down style.

The 5-1 Tygers will tip-off with 5-2 Orrville early on Friday night, with the JV contest slated for 5 p.m.
