Virginia City 77, Eureka 53
The Muckers had no problems against Eureka at Elko High School as they were able to clear the bench and get everyone playing time. But that likely won’t be the case today (4:40 p.m. tip-off) as the Muckers will face top-seeded Mineral County.
“We were a little bit sloppy tonight, you can’t do that against Hawthorne,” Virginia City coach Denny Dotson said.
Mineral Co., located in Hawthorne, split the season series with Virginia City with both teams winning their respective home games.
In Thursday’s win, the Muckers were led by Zach Shell’s 21 points, Colt Dotson added 15 and Cody Morris had 14 off the bench.
