Alright, we pivot to the ladies now..pete, no games tonight, but tomorrow... tomorrow is one of the best days of the year if you're a high school basketball fan... no question..it's one of my favorites for sure..regional saturday...each site gets two games in the morning, a title game at night..
Communities from all over the state flock to places like kokomo, and winamac, and even columbia city..
Hoping to see their team get one step closer to bankers life fieldhouse..that includes several fan bases here in northeast indiana... this of course, is familiar territory if you're a homestead spartan..sparty is set to play in its fifth regional in just the last six years tomorrow in kokomo..
They've had some success there over the years..in fact, rod parker's teams have won each of the last three regionals they've played in...but they'll have to get through defending champ zionsville, and possibly top ranked hamilton southeastern, in order to cut down the nets once again..
So it'll be homestead- zionsville at noon..carroll will take on #1 h-s-e at 10 a-m..the winners will square off at 8 p.m.
Inside the famous kokomo gym..
Pete, how about the ne-cc this year?conference prouduced not one, not two, not three... but áfourá sectional champions..
Two of them we'll see tomorrow in the 3-a columbia city regional..that includes the angola hornets, who clinched their first sectional crown since 2003 on monday..so they're obviously new to this stage, but brandon appleton and company don't plan on altering their approach... hornets will play new castle in game one at columbia city..
They'll be followed by west noble and marion..championship is set to tip at 8 p.m.
Staying in the ne-cc with the defending 2-a state champs..
Central noble is chasing a three-peat tomorrow..the cougars looking to claim their third straight regional title..
C-n will open the day with hammond bishop noll, the same team they beat in the regional championship a season ago..
Josh treesh's team comes in at 25-0 the season, the most recent win coming in dominant fashion against a very good bremen team on monday..
Central noble and bishop noll will tip at 1 p.m.
In winamac...the winner will take on either bluffton or north judson-san pierre in the nightcap... finally, in class 1-a..new territory for northfield...the norse will play in the regional round for the first time since 1980 on saturday... yet, despite the fact that this group of girls has never been here before, this team might be the favorites the cut down the nets in tipton...the fourth-ranked norse will play an under .500 cowan team in the first round..
The winner will move on to play either north vermillion or blue river valley... northfield and cowan will tip at noon in tipton..championship game is set to begin at 7:30...
