Third Place

The Marshall Lions defeated the Winnebago Indians tonight 66-55 to finish 3rd in the Illinois 2A IHSA basketball finals, finishing the best season of any boys basketball team in the school's history with a 32-1 record. My nephews, Lucas and Logan Eitel, scored 21 and 20 points, respectively tonight. They both achieved first team all state honors. The Peoria Journal-Star ran a nice story this weekend on the twins, both of whom are headed to Indiana State to play NCAA Division I basketball this fall. The Terre Haute Tribune Star has good coverage of tonight's game as well.

Congrats to Marshall. I look forward to your nephews' continued successes at Indiana State (I know ISU is).

Thanks, I think ISU's basketball program is going to have some good years ahead of it with the twins and other additions the team is making through it recruiting efforts.
