CHURUBUSCO â€” In basketball itâ€™s fun to get out and run, hit lay-ups and jack up three-pointers. But itâ€™s close, hard-fought games that will build character.
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.

WARSAW â€” At the end of the game, all a team can ask for is to put itself in a position to win.

COLUMBIA CITY â€“ When Columbia City and Whitko boysâ€™ basketball teams meet in their traditional pre-Thanksgiving contest, the game takes on a sectional atmosphere with each side going all out. This yearâ€™s edition featured a tall, long, aggressive veteran Columbia City squad and a Whitko team with a brand new coach, and one win in games last season. 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.
