My vacation has ended, and I’m guessing, it has for many of you, too! That’s always sad, but it helps that there’s high school basketball tonight — and don’t forget that my live chats get started again on Wednesday from 1-2 p.m. We have so much to catch up on.
Heights plays host to Bishop Carroll in what has been the can’t-miss girls basketball game of the season for a decade now. This game doesn’t have the same magical hold on me as it has in the past, especially because Kapaun beat Carroll and Heights doesn’t have the same state-recognized names in its lineup. But it’s still a big game between two of the perennial powers of the City League and state.
On the boys side, the game should be, well, interesting. Heights is second in the City League in scoring, with 64 points per game, while Carroll is last, averaging 44 points a game. My guess is Carroll will slow it way down.
In other games,
Andover is playing at Andover Central, always a great rivalry game.
Salina Central is at Maize, which is where I’ll be. I’m especially interested in this girls game.
Buhler is at Rose Hill, which could be interesting, as well, for both boys and girls.
The rest of the City League games are Kapaun at South, East at West and Southeast at North.
So where will you be tonight? What are the can’t-miss teams this season? What are you excited about in 2012?
