Ramblin’ Reck: Thanks to snow, hectic high school slate tonight

TERRE HAUTE — Due to last week’s snowfall, tonight’s boys high school basketball schedule is akin to a Friday night in the area.

Most of the games were rescheduled from last week but one game was on the original card. That one is Marshall playing at Casey in a Clark County rivalry renewal in Illinois.

The Warriors opened their season with a victory at Terre Haute South while the Lions went 2-2 in Capital Classic action after Thanksgiving. As usual, WMMC-FM 105.9 will carry the action.

In Indiana, two games will be played in Vigo County.

Northview is at Terre Haute North and South Vermillion is at West Vigo for a boys-girls doubleheader.

Northview will be playing for the first time since opening the season against Vincennes Lincoln while the Patriots are 1-1. West Vigo also is 1-1 and South Vermillion is playing its second game.

The Vikings will begin what could be a busy week with games against Northview and South Knox also on the schedule.

Shakamak was supposed to open the season last week and the Lakers will try again tonight, slated to play at Sullivan. The Arrows are 1-0.

Hopefully, better weather conditions will prevail this week to get in some hoops.

• Nice honors — It’s good to see names  from the Wabash Valley among former players and coaches being honored by the Indiana Basketball Hall of Fame.

Tony McGee of Terre Haute South and Kenny Rowan of Northview have been named members of the Silver Anniversary team.

Former Shelburn and North Central coach Paul Weekley finally received his due honor last week and will be one of the inductees in March.

Several persons put in a lot of time and effort on Weekley’s behalf. Some of them spending time gathering datas and letters were Mick Fuson, Wilbur Crooks, Tom Turner and Tom Russell.

A celebration in observance of the honor is planned for March 28 at North Central.
