(WXOW) -- With time starting to wind down in the high school basketball season a few teams are getting close to conference championships. One of those is the North Crawford Trojans.
Sitting on top of the Ridge & Valley (9-0), North Crawford sits three games ahead of a two-way tie for second in the conference.
The Trojans appear to be playing well at the right time, too. They've won their last three games each by an average of 26 points. However, they're hoping that sort of performance doesn't lead to complacency.
Senior Joe Childs said, "[We need to be] keeping our fire going because getting up by 30, people tend to slack off, and playing half a game gets you to slack off. You gotta know it's not always going to be that easy down the road."
"We need to play hard 32 minutes, not 24, not 28 but 32 minutes," added head coach Gary Hines. "If we do that, we'll be in good shape."
The Trojans return to the court on Thursday for a throw-down with second place (6-3) Kickapoo.
