Listen on the Slocum Sports Network Tuesday evening to a boys basketball showdown between two schools sitting at 8-1 on the season, as the Schoolcraft Eagles will be hosting the Marcellus Wildcats.
For Marcellus, this is a major turnaround from the 3-18 mark they posted last season. Their lone loss came in their second game of the season to Constantine (3-6), 60-57. Since then, they’ve beaten the likes of Howardsville Christian (6-1), and Bloomingdale (6-4). If they can pull off a win at Schoolcraft, it would easily be their most impressive win yet. It’s a bad memory for the returning Wildcats, with the Eagles smashing them 60-11 last season.
Schoolcraft’s lone loss came at unbeaten Hackett Catholic two weeks ago, 50-39. In the newest AP poll, Hackett is the second-best team in Class C. Like Marcellus, Schoolcraft only has two wins over teams currently above .500, although their most recent game was an impressive 88-48 demolition at 6-2 Delton-Kellogg. The Eagles are pushing for back-to-back winning seasons, building off a 12-7 mark last season.
Listen to the contest on the Slocum Sports Network with tip off scheduled for 7 p.m. pending JV play.
