Some terrific basketball expected later this afternoon as the Red Cloud boys and girls are coming to Mission to take on the Falcons and Lady Falcons. If you are planning on attending, the JV girls start at approximately 1:00 p.m., followed by JV boys.
Seems like the varsity girls will start around 4:00...If ya can't make it, don't worry Brian and Janice Dillon will be calling the game on the Rosebud Sioux Tribe's Channel 93 on youtube....the link for that is....https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=72CjTLWCG9w
The games should both be terrific. Bob Boyd's Lady Falcons looking to find their groove after a 5th place finish at Lakota Nation. Waiting in the wings tonight will be Matt Rama's girls who gave Crow Creek a game at LNI (57-51) and finished third at LNI. Former St. Francis standout Lema Leader Charge is an assistant on that Red Cloud team.
The boys game should be a dandy as Christian McGhee's Crusaders come in with a 4-1 record. The No. 1 seeded Saders lost a tough quarterfinal to McLaughlin, hung on to beat Tiospa Zina in OT and then drilled CEB to earn fifth place at LNI. Former Rosebud Panther, Russell Leader Charge teams with Alejandro Rama, and others for a solid roster.
Rashad Shannon's Falcons enter the game with a 4-2 record. The Falcons lost to Lower Brule in their LNI opener, won two straight and dropped a tough one to Little Wound for the championship of the Paha Sapa bracket.
Aiden Bizardie and Tyre Primeaux both score in double figures and David Espinoza leads the team with 8.7 rebounds per game. Tune in for some great double-header action.
