HS Basketball: Battle For The Top
Tonight will be the first test of two teams trying to reach the top of the Interstate 8 Conference.
The Harper Creek Beavers head east to Marshall to battle the Redhawks, with a possible tie at stake for the I-8 lead. While Harper Creek was dominate last year against Marshall in the regular season, the Redhawks almost eliminated the Beavers on their floor in their district opener. That's when a Harper Creek buzzer-beater three-pointer would end Marshall's season 75-74.
While almost all the names have changed for the Beavers, the Redhawks return a majority of last year's squad that have put that game in their distant past.
Harper Creek will have to find some answers after falling Tuesday to Parma Western - their third loss in the last four games. Marshall has ran of seven straight wins, including three of them in overtime.
Here's the rest of tonight's busy schedule...

Marshall 7-2 (4-1 Interstate 8) - Harper Creek 4-4 (3-2 Interstate 8)
