Packed house expected at the Rocket Center

TOLONO - Around 7 p.m. tonight, the event local basketball fans have been waiting for has finally arrived. Unity will put their 23-2 record on the line against the 22-6 Spartans of St. Joseph-Ogden at the Rocket Center.

SJO, undefeated in conference play at 7-0, has defeated their last four opponents by 12 or more points. Earlier this week, the Spartans crushed Rantoul at home by 33 points. Tanner Jacob, who was 2-for-2 from the free-throw line, led the team with 15 points in the senior night win.

Coy Taylor, Tanner Siems, and Luke Landrus also finished in double figures with 14, 13, and 10 points, respectively.

Unity is also on a four-game win streak, posting wins over Newton, Auburn, IVC, and Central Catholic in contests since January 31.

Two weeks ago tonight, Rockets' Henry Thomas reached a prep career milestone while putting up 21 points on Prairie Central. The senior scored his 1,000th point, helping the team avoid a possible overtime decision against the Hawks in a 60-56 win.
