The stage was set. Retro warmups, an electric homecoming crowd, and a chance for the Iola Mustangs to gain ground on Pioneer League rival Burlington.
Iola stood at 4-2 in the league, one game behind the Wildcats. Last time around at Burlington the Wildcats handed Iola a 62-49 loss.
While Iola intended to flip the score, it was no match for Burlington’s physicality for the second straight time this season, losing 80-51.
