COLUMBIA CITY â€” Columbia Cityâ€™s boys basketball team was feeling a little extra blue after losing its second game in a row Friday night. The Eagles wore blue jerseys in support of prostate cancer awareness and auctioned them during the game, raising over $3,000.
Unfortunately, Columbia City (10-3) wasnâ€™t as successful on the court, losing 69-63 to New Haven (9-2).
CHURUBUSCO â€” Churubusco Eagle basketball came into Fridayâ€™s game looking to extend its winning record to 8-5, hosting Northeast Corner Conference rival Central Noble. â€™Busco did so in a convincing fashion, downing the Cougars, 60-43.
In the first half, the game provided the typical feel of an intra-conference rivalry game, according to Churubusco Head Coach Michael McBride.
â€śIt was a good battle, a good game; big rivalry, big crowds. (There was) a lot of excitement and intensity out there. Itâ€™s a great atmosphere for our kids and a great win for our kids tonight,â€ť McBride said.
