Maharishi School defeats Pekin 73-50

The Pioneers finished the season on a strong note as they won 6 of their last seven games. The pioneers are playing the best basketball of the season and are optimistic going into the districts which begins Monday. (vs. North English at IMS).
Against Pekin Maharishi School came out firing on all cylinders and pulled ahead early and kept at least a 15 point margin between them and their division rivals. Carlisle and Mullenneaux were especially accurate, looking very relaxed as they both seemed to score at will. The pioneers looked organized and focused on both defense and offense and this made for a fun game to watch if you were a pioneer fan. Most of the starters were on the bench by the 4th quarter and next years team were able to get some solid playing time. They too held their own as the pioneers can now look to the play-offs.
Clearly the pioneers are playing a different quality of basketball than they did at the beginning of the year which of course is the goal when the season begins. So we wish the team good luck in the districts.
