Fans can listen to the game live on exploreClarion.com or by downloading our app for Apple and Android, with the Kerle Tire Pre-Game Show starting at 7 p.m. and game time at 7:30 p.m. with Dustin Kifer and Bob “The Governor” Dunkle on the call.
Keystone enters the game at 13-3 overall and 5-0 in the KSAC South with Moniteau at 10-8 overall and 4-2 in the KSAC South. A Panthers win would keep them at least a game up in the loss column on Karns City, who is at Union, with four conference games left. Keystone and Karns City meet again Feb. 13, and the Gremlins would need to be in a tie going into that game with the Panthers to secure the divisional crown.
Moniteau is experiencing a bounce-back season under first-year head coach Jerry Day, and the Warriors are led by District 9’s leading scorer Lake Pry (22.8 points per game).
Keystone is paced by Austin Ion and his 14.6 points per contest.
The teams met Dec. 16 in Knox with Keystone winning 44-32.
