Mid-Peninsula Conference Composite Basketball Schedule: Jan. 26th – Jan. 31st

Ishpeming vs. Westwood

The Westwood Patriot boys handed the Ishpeming Hematites their fourth straight loss on Saturday, wrapping up a great week of conference basketball.

MARQUETTE, MI – 1/26/2015 – Nearing the halfway point of the season, the MPC continues to be full of surprises.  With just two undefeated teams left (Iron Mountain boys; Ishpeming girls), the chances of claiming the conference championship are fading for a couple of teams.  After a hot start to the season, the Ishpeming boys have now dropped four games straight, three of which were in-conference games.  The defending co-MPC champion Westwood Patriot girls can’t seem to find their groove after the departure of senior Elizabeth Dauphinais-VanBuren and have fallen to 1-8 on the season and are now 1-4 in conference play; four games behind the conference-leading Hematites.  The Iron Mountain boys are off to one of their best starts in school history, starting off an impressive 9-0.  They’ll welcome in the Miners on Tuesday for the toughest test of the season for both teams, one of which will come out as first in the MPC.  The same goes for the Lady Hematites tonight, as they’ll travel to Negaunee to take on the Miners in Lakeview. Without further adieu, here is this week’s schedule:
