In plenty of basketball circles, there are times where a coach feels like a team is in the process of "learning how to win" and establishing consistency. In the case of the Upson-Lee boys basketball program, the consistency is apparent, and over the course of the past 48 games, the Knights simply just don't know how to lose. The winning streak continues as the reigning state champ rolls on.
