HUNTERTOWN â€” Carroll High School is playing host to what many northeast Indiana basketball advocates are calling one of the toughest sectionals in northeast Indiana.
Sectional play began last night, as Northrop knocked the host Chargers out of the state tournament by a 58-46 score.
Columbia City plays its opening round tonight, taking on a struggling, 2-20, East Noble squad.
Though the Eagles may have a nearly effortless win tonight, considering their 76-35 domination of the Knights in regular-season play, Columbia City has had two strong wins coming into sectional action.
OSSIAN â€” It was a tale of two halves at Norwellâ€™s opening-round sectional game between Whitko and Bellmont Tuesday night.

â€śWe came out and played with a sense of urgency,â€ť Whitko head coach Scott Wessel said. â€śAt halftime, I just told them to go out and play hard.â€ť
BERNE â€” Churubuscoâ€™s boys basketball team took the 100-mile round-trip drive to South Adams High School Tuesday for the opening round of the Starfire-hosted sectional.
