Didn't the basketball season just start? Hard to believe holiday tournaments are right around the corner, but enjoy them. They're the best part of the season outside of the postseason. So head up to Watseka if you've got a chance and see some quality competition.

Usually a close game when the Bunnies and Knights get together. Knights

get the edge from me in this one.

Rantoul has gotten off to a rough start to the season. A win over conference rival SJO would do a lot to boost the Eagles confidence.

I'm still mostly in guess mode at this stage of the season. Educated guesses, of course, but they're still mostly a stab in the dark. That said, I'll take Tuscola and Jalen Quinn against almost anybody.
