OSAWATOMIE — Luke Bycroft, head coach for the Iola Mustangs, knows he’s going to have to better prepare his boys for playing on the road.

On Tuesday, the Mustangs lost by one point at Osawatomie, home of the Trojans, despite winning in a 20-point blowout back in Iola earlier in the season. The Mustangs secured a 64-44 win over Osawatomie on Jan 31. 

And coming off a 79-59 win over Anderson County, the Mustangs regained their position at No. 10 in the class 4A state rankings.
