Coming off a home non-conference loss to La Crosse Aquinas three nights earlier, the Prairie du Chien Boys Basketball team was looking to get back on the winning track before the start of the postseason. A win over the host River Valley Blackhawks would do just that, and also clinch a tie for second place in the SWC between Prairie du Chien and River Valley.

The visiting Blackhawks took a 24-19 lead into halftime, and then used a strong second half to earn a 56-37 road victory. Prairie’s win gave both teams a 6-4 record in the SWC and tied the two teams in second place, four games behind champion Platteville.

Prairie du Chien improved their record to 13-11 overall with the win, while River Valley dropped to 10-14 overall.

The Hawks began postseason play on Tuesday night when they hosted the No. 12 seed Evansville Blue Devils (4-20 overall, 2-13 in the Rock Valley Conference) in a Division 3 Regional Quarterfinal.
