(FESTUS) The 6-2 Hillsboro Hawks are making the short trip to Festus Friday night to take on the 5-3 St. Pius Lancers in a boys basketball duel on AM 1400 KJFF.

Hillsboro is coming off arguably its best win of the season, a 15-point come-from-behind road victory over 9-1 Mehlville. Hawks head man Dan Johnson likes the pieces that the Lancers have in place and knows it’ll be another tough game.

St. Pius bounced back nicely Wednesday against Crystal City after a tough loss in the JCAA Shootout against DeSoto last week. Lancers head coach Eric Lawrence is still looking for that one game where his guys play well till the very end.

KJFF’s coverage of the game Friday night will begin at 6:45 with the Flieg’s Equipment Pregame Show. You can also listen to the game here and on the TuneIn or IHeartRadio app on your phone.
