It's hard to believe it's that time already, but on Thursday the IHSAA announced the pairings for the 99th boys' basketball sectionals.
At the Class 2A South Putnam No. 46 Sectional, Cloverdale and South Putnam will battle in the second game on Tuesday, March 3 at 7:30 p.m. North Putnam will take on Speedway in the second game Wednesday.
The Clovers (7-11) and Eagles (6-13) faced each other on Jan. 30, with the Clovers coming away with a 57-49 win. North Putnam gave the Sparkplugs a scare back on Feb. 9, falling 59-45. The Cougars' last win against Speedway came on Jan. 31 of the 2005-06 season.
In 3A action, Greencastle will play the first game Wednesday of the No. 29 South Vermillion Sectional.
Greencastle opens against Owen Valley, an opponent they will get up close and personal with next Tuesday, as they host the Patriots at 7:30 p.m. In the past 15 years, the Patriots hold a 10-0 advantage over the Tiger Cubs.
