CASS (18-2) vs. MANCHESTER (16-5)
Lewis Cass’ boys basketball team survived its sectional opener Tuesday against Wabash at the Class 2A sectional. The No. 7-ranked Kings face another tough test tonight against the tournament host Squires.
“It’s two contrasting styles,” Cass coach Jon Kitchel said. “They play a switching man-to-man defense that looks like a zone. They’re real deliberate on offense. They’ve got three shooters and they’re a team that plays off emotion. They’ll have a lot of emotion with it being a home game for them.”
