But, earlier in the week, they were beaten by the Coyotes from Grant County 54-37 and by the number one state-ranked undefeated, defending state champion Bishop Ryan Lions: 85-24. The Lions are on a 47-game winning streak.
The Trojans finish the season with eight wins and eleven losses and go into to the District 10 tournament as the number four team. The Trojans play Wilton/Wing the first game of the district tournament Feb 28 at Washburn.
