(Manning) The #3 ranked IKM-Manning girls basketball team will play for the Western Valley Conference Tournament Championship on Saturday against #1 OA-BCIG.
The Wolves move into the conference championship game with a 63-34 win over Ar-We-Va in the semi-finals on Monday.
The semi-final win sets up the big rematch with undefeated OA-BCIG in the conference championship on Saturday. After an undefeated state title last year, OA-BCIG is unbeaten again this year and looking poised to defend as the Class 2A state champs. However if there is a team built to beat the Falcons it could very well be IKM-Manning. IKM-Manning was bounced by OA-BCIG in the state tournament last year and this year the Wolves only loss this year came against their conference rivals. Both losses were by just four points.
It’s the champion against the challenger, OA-BCIG against IKM-Manning, the Falcons against the Wolves on Saturday for the Western Valley Conference Tournament Championship.
