If weather permits, the Knights and Lady Knights basketball teams will have a busy week.
The ladies open the week with a home game against Elizabethtown (16-2), who is a Fifth Region contender. The game will prove to be a test of strength for the girls. Elizabethtown is the reigning tournament champion and features top players in the region with senior Alex Jones and sophomore Natalie Greenwell.
The Lady Knights are scheduled to tip off against Elizabethtown at the Roby Dome on Thursday night at 7:30 p.m.
The Knights are scheduled to resume play Thursday night as well, tipping off against Christian Academy of Louisville (CAL) on the road at 7:30 p.m.

The Knights went toe-to-toe with Taylor County (13-5) in one of their best all around efforts of the year. The sequel looks to be another chess match for the rivals. The Cardinals feature a tough one-two combo of Chase Cox and Leonard Macon.
The Knights tip off against the Cardinals at 8 p.m.
Saturday is just another day at the office for the Knights as they play their third game in as many days against Hancock County (7-14).
