BASKETBALL GAME NOTES
Ink Free News / Sports on Monday, November 11, 2019
A pair of area basketball games have been altered and announced with changes.
The Tuesday night men’s basketball game between Grace and Cincinnati Christian will not be played.
Cincinnati Christian has ceased athletic operations; CCU announced recently that it would be closing its doors at the end of the calendar year, and CCU’s teams ended the season prematurely.
Per NAIA guidelines, the game will officially be counted as a 2-0 victory for the Lancers due to CCU’s forfeit.
Grace remains at home on Friday and Saturday with the annual Terry Polston Hoops for Hope. The Lancers (3-2) will play Holy Family on Friday at 8 p.m. and Shawnee State on Saturday at 4 p.m.
The Warsaw at Tippecanoe Valley girls basketball game originally scheduled for Friday has been pushed back a day to Saturday, Nov. 16, at Tippecanoe Valley. The start time was not immediately announced.
The game was changed in recognition of Warsaw’s regional football game at Merrillville Friday night. The football game is set for 7:30 p.m. EST at Merrillville.
