One of the most anticipated battles in the Southern Central Athletic Association's West Division took place Monday to determine who would gain the upper hand in the division standings.

The St. Philip Fighting Tigers welcomed the Bellevue Broncos to Sheila Guerra Gymnasium for our High School Basketball Game of the Night and provided a preview of what is to come out of both squads before 2019 arrives.

It was one of six area games that kicked off the final week before the student-athletes head into holiday break. Check out the recap of our contest on WBCK and all the scores from a relatively light Monday night.
