Game on! Lancers, Raiders tip off with Sunflower title on the line
The numbers couldn’t match up more evenly for the SM East and SM South basketball teams.
They’ve squared off a total 104 times. Each team has 52 wins.
They’ve played all but one game in their Sunflower League schedule this season. Each team is 10-0 in league play.
But after tonight, the stalemate will be broken.
Despite the fact that school was canceled today, the regular-season ending Senior Night matchup between the Lancers and Raiders will be played as scheduled. And since the Kansas State High School Activities Association bumped SM South to a 5A classification this year, the Lancers and Raiders have no chance of meeting in state tournament play. So bragging rights for the rivalry as well as a Sunflower League title are up for grabs tonight.
With so much to play for, head coach Shawn Hair anticipates it will be a packed house in spite of the conditions.
“Get there early,” he texted us yesterday. “Big crowd expected.”
