High School
The boys basketball season tips off tonight…
– Lake Linden-Hubbell plays at Hancock. Our broadcast will begin around 7:00 on KBear 102.3 and KBear102.com.
– Calumet entertains Negaunee.
– L’Anse visits Westwood.
– Dollar Bay-Tamarack City hosts Republic-Michigamme.
– Baraga plays at Jeffers.
– Ontonagon travels to Watersmeet.
– Ewen-Trout Creek welcomes Wakefield-Marenisco.

Usually, the girls schedule begins a week before the boys schedule. That has been switched this year, because of a potential conflict between the boys state championships and an NCAA playoff game at the Breslin Center in East Lansing.

In high school hockey, Hancock plays at Houghton tonight.

The high school swim season opens today, as Houghton competes at Westwood.
