Digging Deep: HS Basketball – February 3
While the area continued to dig out of the weekend snowstorm, the area High School Basketball teams will look to dig deep heading into the second half of the season.
It begins tonight for two teams that were familiar with each other for several years in the Twin Valley and Southwest Michigan Athletic conferences. Now a non-conference battle, the Lakeview Spartans will host the Harper Creek Beavers in another cross-town rivalry.
The Beavers will go for win their fourth straight tonight after thumping Jackson Northwest last Friday. They have won three of the last four games over the Spartans over the past two seasons. Harper Creek was also voted back into the state rankings in Class B, sitting in the 10th spot.
The Spartans will look to challenge another cross-town team in consecutive games. Even though they have tallied one win on the season, they pushed Battle Creek Central to the limit last Friday at Central's Fieldhouse. Snow scrubbed the Spartans make-up game with Kalamazoo Central, so the focus shifts back to Harper Creek on their home floor.
Here's the rest of the action tonight, as Pennfield hosts Schoolcraft in non-conference action. On the Girls side, St. Philip will host Bellevue as they play their first game as a Class D Honorable Mention.
