Game of the week
Northeastern at Greeneview boys, tonight, 7:30: At this point in the regular season, there’s really nothing left to play for but bragging rights.
And that’s exactly what the Jets and Rams would love to accomplish tonight in Jamestown.
Greeneview (14-5, 12-1 Ohio Heritage Conference) clinched its second straight league title on Tuesday with a 59-42 victory over Mechanicsburg.
The Rams’ lone league loss came at the hands of Northeastern on Jan. 6 — and they’ll want nothing more than to avenge that loss on their home floor.
In the last meeting, the Jets’ Nick Wiseman hit a 3-pointer with 20 seconds left in overtime to give them a 56-55 victory in Springfield.
Expect another good contest tonight in Jamestown.
Best of the rest
Indian Lake at Urbana boys, tonight, 7:30: The Hillclimbers can complete a perfect 10-0 mark in the CBC Mad River.
Kenton Ridge at Tecumseh boys, tonight, 7:30: These Clark County rivals needed two overtimes to decide their last meeting on Jan. 13.
Northwestern at Shawnee boys, Saturday, 7:30: The Braves will surely want revenge after the Warriors’ upset victory last season.
Things to watch
Sectional wrestling/district swimming: The road to the state championships starts this weekend for area wrestlers. At the same time, area swimmers who punched their tickets to districts last weekend will look to reach their final tourney of the season— the state championships in Canton.
