The Columbiana and Salem girls headlined our WKBN Game of the Week on Monday night.
The two teams met in what could be the first of a pair of meetings this month. They could also meet in the Division III District Semifinals at Struthers.
So Monday night’s match-up was a chance to make a statement heading into tournament play.
After dropping two games to start the season, the 17-3 Clippers had won 13 straight games. Columbiana is led by Kayla Muslovsk, who is a member of last year’s starting five. She’s averaging nearly 24 points per game.
Meanwhile, Salem polished off an Eastern Buckeye Conference title over the weekend and brought a mark of 15-5 to the floor.
