(CRYSTAL CITY) The Jefferson Blue Jays’ boys basketball team looks to stay hot when visiting the Crystal City Hornets tomorrow night on AM 1400 KJFF.

The Blue Jays have won six in a row and 12 of the last 14 to a tune of 14-6 for the season. Head coach Jason Dreyer attributes the success to a stronger defensive presence.

Dreyer hopes the improved defense can slow down Crystal City’s biggest threat in senior forward Brady DeGeare.

As for the Hornets, a 73-47 loss to Festus on Wednesday dropped them to 4-16 on the year. Head coach Sean Breeze says Jefferson, who they beat earlier this year, will make it tough to get back into the win column and that’s where Brady is crucial.

When it all comes down to it, coach Breeze says the defense needs to show up.

The Blue Jays and Hornets take the court tomorrow night in Crystal City beginning at 6:45 on AM 1400 KJFF.
