Last week the Carterville Lions opened the 2023 basketball season in the Trico invitational tournament. The Lions picked up wins over the Steelville Warriors and the Trico Pioneers.
In the final game of the tourney, the Red Bud Musketeers had a lead of 16 points in the second half, however, the Lions battled back late, but came up just short losing 51-48.
Coming up tomorrow night the Carterville Lions, head to Vienna to face the Eagles in non-conference play.
Vienna enters the game with a 4-2 record with wins over Carrier Mills, Meridian, Eldorado and Madison. Their two losses were against Massac County and Lyon County high school.
