Marshall Heads To State Finals
My hometown of Marshall, Illinois is preparing for its first trip to Illinois' state finals in high school boys basketball. The Marshall Lions on which my two nephews , Lucas and Logan Eitel, are starting players are 31-0 for the season. The Lions will face off against Metropolis (Massac County) in the 2A semi-finals on Friday night at the Carver Arena in Peoria, Illinois. The winner of that game will play on Saturday for the state championship. The Terre Haute Tribune-Star's Craig Pearson has a good rundown of the Lions' 65-62 victory over Olympia at Macomb's Western Illinois University last night.
