|The championship game of the Galesburg class 3A boys regional basketball tournament will be played tonight, as the Silver Streaks battle top-seed Quincy Notre Dame.
Galesburg head coach Mike Reynolds says that his staff has done it's homework on Q-ND, but that doesn't make the task any easier.
Both teams have played very challenging schedules in preparation for the postseason, with the Raiders and the Silver Streaks winning by wide margins in Wednesday's semifinals. Broadcast time is 7:06 tonight here on WGIL.
Also this evening, the Titans of Monmouth-Roseville will look to even the score with Minonk Fieldcrest when those two teams meet in the final of the class 2A Farmington Sectional. Fieldcrest topped the Titans in a classic double-overtime game last season to win the Sectional. They setup a rematch last night with a 56-52 overtime win over Rockridge. Monmouth-Roseville enters the game with a 15-game winning streak and an overall record of 24-5.
In the Quad Cities tonight, East Moline is the host site for the class 4A Regional between Rock Island and Pekin. Pekin advanced with a 51-46 come-from-behind win over Richwoods last night.
