Crosstown Boys’ Basketball Tonight
Tonight at the Sister Rita Mudd Activity Center, Loyola Sacred Heart and Valley Christian resume their crosstown rivalry in a pivotal District 6B matchup.
The Rams won the first meeting back in December 62-56, and haven’t looked back. Loyola is 8-2 overall and 4-1 in league play. Their lone conference loss came courtesy of Florence, who currently sits on top of the league standings with a perfect 5-0 record. For the Rams to keep pace with Florence, a win tonight is critical.
Since that six point setback to Loyola, Valley Christian has scuffled along. The Eagles are just 3-7 overall, but a win tonight would even Valley’s league record at 3-3.
And if the intrigue of the rivalry isn’t enough for you, both teams showcase explosive scorers. As noted last week, Loyola’s Everett Johnston has been unstoppable this year, routinely scoring 20 or more points. Earlier this month, Johnston committed to play college basketball at Carroll College in Helena.
Valley Christian’s Matthew Bohlken isn’t too shabby, either. Bohlken usually scores between 12 and 20 points a night.
So if you are looking for something fun and exciting to do tonight, head over to the RAM. The opening tip off is set for 7:30.
