(Ironton) Basketball coverage on Regional Radio tips off tonight as we will broadcast the two semi finals of the 94th Arcadia Valley Thanksgiving Tournament on J98. In the first game of the night, the #1 South Iron Panthers take on the #4 Ellington Whippets. Panthers head coach Dusty Dinkins says the Whippets will be a good early test for his squad.
The Whippets look forward to the early challenge as head coach Jeremy Peterson says he knows it is not going to be easy against one of the top teams in the state.
Semi final number two pits the #2 Bunker Eagles against the #6 Lesterville Bearcats. Bunker first year head coach Rod Gorman says they’ve really just been focusing on themselves to start the season.
The Bearcats upset #3 Fredericktown in the quarter finals 48-47 thanks to a couple of free throws from Nolan Mathes which capped off a 29 point performance on the night as well. Head coach Anthony Caruso says he expects the Eagles to be another good challenge.
Coverage begins this evening at 5:15 with the Flieg’s Equipment Pregame Show on 98.5 FM.
