The Churubusco Eagles basketball team got out and ran when it could, but for the most part against Westview, â€˜Busco had to stand and fight. Friday night, it took the Eagles three-and-a half quarters to pull away from the Warriors as â€˜Busco improved to 2-0 with a 56-44 victory.

Under some instances with a rivalry of this sort one might through records and such things out, but in this case things went according to expectations, as the Eagles opened their season with a dominating 73-16 win.
