At 8-6 in all games and 4-4 in the OCC. The Lexington boy's basketball team is looking for consistency. Last week the Minutemen stopped Orrville in overtime 68-65, but then fell the very next night at home to Wooster 51-44. Coach Scott Hamilton says he has to do a better job of coaching and the players have to a better job of sticking with the game plan late in the game especially in the fourth quarter. This week Lex will play two again with both being in the OCC. On Friday they'll travel to West Holmes, a team that beat them in overtime the first time they met back in December 53-50. Then on Saturday they will host Madison, a team that beat them 46-41, just two weeks ago when Madison opened their new gym. Senior guard Matt Barkett says the team needs to approach every opponent as if they were playing Mansfield Senior, saying sometimes his team does not give the respect that it should to other teams. Senior Zach Temple agrees and adds his team can't let up in the fourth quarter. West Holmes will come at 10-4, 6-2 in the OCC, while Madison heads into the weekend at 4-9 and 1-7 in conference.
