The gym at Minneota was packed last Tuesday as the RTR boys and the MinĀ­neota boys squared off in round two of their season games. The game meant very little for both teams as the conference and secĀ­tion seedings were already established. Even though the Knights led most of the contest, the Vikings made a late run to win the game by a score of 61-59.

The game saw the Knights commit many mistakes, especially in the passing area. They would have 12 turnovers in the first half and 20 overall. The Vikings committed 16 turnovers. The Knights usually rely on turnovers to win most of their games, so a game where they have more turnovers than the other team means trouble.
