City, area teams enter tournaments
Eisenhower and MacArthur boys will be facing some tough competition as they fight for lofty regional seedings in Class 5A and both Elgin teams will be dodging the field at the Hub City Classic in Clinton where both teams are seeded No. 1 and will also face stern challenges.
However, that’s just the nature of this always-important week of tournament action as teams try to get something going just a little more than a month before the start of the playoffs.
This week and the tournament week that begins Jan. 21, are the final two weeks to get in that final tournament action where players and coaches can test themselves under stern stress from opponents and their own mental challenges.
