We wrap up January with a crosstown rivalry that will put us back at the most famous gym in town. Tonight, the Battle Creek Central Bearcats will look to extend their winning streak to five games as they host the Lakeview Spartans in Southwest Michigan Athletic Conference action.

The two squads are very familiar with each other, but it has been dominated by the Bearcats, who have not lost to the Spartans in several years. After a 0-5 start, the Bearcats return to the scene of their first win of the season after topping Highland Park Renaissance Academy during the Chuck Turner Holiday Tournament. Since then, Central has run off six wins in their last seven games.

The Spartans are looking to eliminate their mistakes and surprise the Bearcats on their floor. After earning their first win of the season on January 13th over Portage Central, the Spartans have dropped three straight that included a road loss to Stevensville-Lakeshore on Tuesday. Tonight begins a tough stretch as Lakeview has a make-up game February 2nd at Kalamazoo Central (12-0), Harper Creek (9-1) at home on February 3rd, and back on the road at Mattawan (3-7) a week from today.

Here's the rest of the weekend's schedule, as Harper Creek and Pennfield begin the second rotation through the Interstate 8 schedule, and St. Philip travels to Hillsdale Academy.
