District Titles Up For Grabs: HS Basketball – March 13
As the MHSAA District Finals arrive tonight in Boys Basketball, eight area teams are looking to advance to next week's Regionals. Among those teams are two squads out of the South Central Athletic Association that have had two solid battles this season.
Tonight, the St. Philip Tigers look to complete the season sweep on their home floor in the Class D District Finals as they take on the Bellevue Broncos. The Tigers won their revenge match-up with the Jackson Christian Royals Wednesday to return to the finals for the fourth straight season. The Broncos have reached the finals for the third straight season and will also try for their third straight regional appearance.
The last time these two teams squared off at the Tiger Den at St. Philip, Drey English sunk a three-pointer at the buzzer to bury the Broncos 45-42. The Tigers knocked off Bellevue in their road contest 54-46 last month.
Join us for the huge Class D District Final tonight at St. Philip! Here's the rest of the schedule for this evening, including Harper Creek's battle with Delton. Also congratulations to the Homer Lady Trojans, advancing to Tuesday's State Quarterfinals in Class C.
