HERRIN – The Pyramid Plus Tournament will technically end tomorrow, but the championship could be decided tonight as a pair of 3-0 teams will play.
The Mt Vernon Rams (3-0) will take on Collinsville (3-0) and if the Rams want to put themselves in position to take home the championship, they will have to deal with a pair of “bigs” for Collinsville that stand 6-8 and 6-7. Game time on 94.1 WMIX and wmixsports.com is at 7:00.
In the night’s first game, the Salem Wildcats (1-2) had a lead on Mt Vernon on Wednesday night after the first quarter and will try to build on that as they take on winless Soldan at 5:30. The late game tonight will feature rivals Herrin and Marion at 8:30.
MULBERRY GROVE – Odin is in the driver’s seat at the Mulberry Grove Tournament winning their first three games of the season, including a 95 point performance in a win over Cowden Herrick. Their latest came at the hands of Ramsey 76-52 on Wednesday night.
Meanwhile Patoka (2-1) dropped Sandoval (1-2) by a 72-44 final.
