Busco' boys win seventh straight

Last year, ‘Busco returned the favor with a three-point overtime victory on the Falcons’ home court.“It’s a huge rivalry game when you talk about Fairfield,“ said Churubusco Head Coach Mike McBride. “We know each other really well and both teams get up for the game.”The Eagles move to 7-2 in NECC play and 12-5 overall. The team travels to Whitko tonight to face the intra-county foe at 7:30 p.m.___For a more in depth look at this story, see the Feb. 18-19 Weekend Edition of The Post and Mail.
