Since the mid-nineties the Kountze boys basketball program has been a mainstay in the playoffs, but their postseason streak that dates back to 1995 is in real danger. With seven district games remaining the Lions are three games out of the fourth and final playoff spot.
While Kountze's fall from glory has been stunning, it's something that has happened at great programs before. With 500-win Head Coach Duane Joubert at the helm the Lions should be back on the rise next year, though the pipeline of talent from years past isn't to level of where it has been.
Kountze has won four State Championships in program history, with three coming since 2004. It was only a matter of time before the red and black had a down year.
