The Marion County Knights will host the Nelson County Cardinals Tuesday Jan. 4. The Knights have had limited success against the Cardinals over the past few seasons.
Since the 2002-03 season, Marion County has only defeated Nelson County three times while having 14 losses in that same time period.
The last Knight victory over the Cardinals came on March 9, 2004, when Marion County outlasted the Cardinals in the opening round of the regional tournament by a score of 46-44. Most of the games between these two have been close with Nelson County only outscoring the Knights 59-52 on average.
Last season the Knights faced the Cardinals twice. The first meeting was at the Roby Dome on Jan. 29, when the Knights lost 68-59. The second meeting was at Cardinal gym on Feb. 11, 2010, when the Cardinals handed the Knights a 53-47 loss.
The Lady Knights will be back in action on Friday, Jan. 7, at home when they take on the Australian National Team at 6:30 p.m.
