COLUMBIANA, Ohio (WKBN) – The push toward tournament play continued Tuesday night for local boys high school basketball teams. Columbiana played host to West Branch in our Game of the Week.
The Clippers and Warriors have some very high hopes for the post-season, both having already won conference titles.
Going into Tuesday’s game, West Branch was red-hot, having won 10 of its last 11 games overall. The Warriors recently won the EBC title outright for their first league title since 1991.
A West Branch victory Tuesday night would set a school record for wins in a season with 17. That mark was also set in 1991.
Columbiana won the Eastern Ohio Athletic Conference. The Clippers checked in to Tuesday night’s action with a record of 18-3. They have won seven in a row.
West Branch has won each of its last three meetings head-to-head in the series.
