The Monticello Sages boys basketball team is on a rare three-game losing streak and they will look to break the cold snap with a matchup tonight at home against IVC.


The Sages have lost their last three games, all Illini Prairie Conference matchups, to fall to 1-3 in the Illini Prairie. 


You have to go back to the 2016-17 basketball season when the Sages lost the last two games of the 2016 Holiday Hoopla and followed that with a loss to Rantoul, the first game of the 2017 calendar year.


However, later that year, the Sages made their first State Finals appearance in school history.

The Gray Ghosts are 10-12 overall and are 0-3 in the Illini Prairie. 


Meanwhile, the Sages are 15-6 overall and 1-3 in conference play.
