The Kosciusko Whippet basketball team is off to one of its best starts in recent years.
On the season the team is 13-4 overall and 1-0 in Region 4-4A play. The lone Region victory was a thrilling 76-74 victory over archrival Louisville on Jan. 4.
The team also has a tournament championship under its belt this season. The Whippets swept through the JZ George Tournament undefeated in mid November.
Leading this year’s squad are senior guards Terry Skinner and O’Corya Forest.
Forest leads to the team in scoring with 16.2 PPG while Skinner puts in 10.2 PPG. Sophomore center Antonio Harmon averages 11.9 PPG and provides a big presence underneath the goal.
The Whippets will travel to New Hope Friday night before returning home Tuesday, Jan. 14 to host another rivalry game against the Leake Central Gators.
