G-P Patriots boys state-ranked

FLORENCE, Wis. – State-ranked Goodman-Pembine travels to Florence in a Northern Lakes Conference boys basketball match-up tonight. Tip-off is 6:45 p.m.

The league-leading Patriots (10-1 overall, 7-0 NLC) rank 10th in the wissports.net Division 5 state poll.

“It’s a reflection of how hard the boys have worked,” Patriots coach Paul Whitt said of the state recognition. “We have two really tough road games (with Florence tonight and Niagara Friday), and now a bigger bullseye.”

Florence (2-8, 2-5) takes a two-game win streak into tonight’s game. Niagara (5-5) will be looking to avenge a November loss to Goodman.
