I can hardly believe that this is the last night regular season hoops action for the boys. The girls are already knee deep in district action. With hoops action this hot, it’s no surprise that the big spring thaw is just around the corner. I almost hit a robin on my way back to work yesterday, so you know spring is almost sprung! Rather than tell you my story about almost hitting the robin, let’s get into hoops action.
