With the holiday season over and high school sports getting back into the swing of things, the winter sports season is starting to heat up.
High school basketball teams have a little more than a month before district and subdistrict tournaments begin. The number of games remaining on the schedules is dwindling down, but the importance of a win increases with each game.
Around this time of the year, teams are starting to see more district and conference opponents, which often makes for a more exciting game because of how well the two teams know each other. And over the next week, the Class D-1 No. 8 Bruning-Davenport/Shickley boys basketball team is going to become very familiar with its subdistrict foes.
The Eagles kick off a tough stretch of games with a road-contest against McCool Junction (10-1) tonight, both teams will compete in the Class D-1, Subdistrict 2 tournament in late February. On Friday, BDS hosts another D1-2 foe in Exeter-Milligan (9-3). Just seven days after facing the Mustangs in a regular season game, the Eagles will play McCool Junction again in the Crossroads Conference tournament, in which Exeter-Milligan will also be competing.
