(La Porte, IN) - A high school basketball game in La Porte tonight could be a good one. The Slicers take on Chesterton.
La Porte, with a program many people believe is on the rise, sits at 9-4 on the season.
Chesterton, which defeated Merrillville by 20 polnts last week, is 7-4 but their losses were against tough teams from downstate. The Trojans were also the runner-up in last year’s Class 4A state championship game and have several returning players.
Tonight’s game scheduled to begin at 7 p.m. will be broadcast live on 96.7 The Eagle.
Chip Jones, our very own “Voice of the “Slicers,” said La Porte has a chance but needs to shoot well and do things such as limit turnovers to defeat the Trojans. He also said it doesn’t hurt for the game to be at home.
“It’s going to be a tall challenge but it should be interesting,” he said.
