On the entire Metro Conference slate of games Saturday (1/23/21) evening, only one game pitted two winning teams going head-to-head against one another.  That game saw 7-5 Papillion La-Vista travel to 7-6 Omaha North, and the contest proved to be one of the closest affairs of the evening throughout the metro area.

Despite shooting a blistering 69% from the floor and connecting on 17/22 free shots (77%), Papillion La-Vista had to fend off a mid-fourth quarter 12-2 run from Omaha North that saw the game get within a single possession at 63-60 with 1:43 to play.  However, the Monarchs made their remaining six free-throws to collect a solid 69-65 road victory.
