SPRINGFIELD — Getting the top seed in a sectional come time for the tournament draw usually paves an easy road for a team to make it to the districts. Urbana, the top seed in the Springfield Division II sectional, doesn’t have an easy road to the second round.
First, the Hillclimbers have to take on rival Graham. The Falcons (3-18) have struggled this season, but games against rivals can be challenging, especially come tournament time. Graham gave the Hillclimbers a scare in regular season game on Jan. 10. The Falcons led by two points at the end of the third quarter before Urbana outscored them by 11 points in the fourth quarter to win the game.
If Urbana wins against Graham, the Hillclimbers will play fourth-seed Bellefontaine (14-8) in a second-round game. After that, the winner will likely take on second-seed Tippecanoe (16-6) in a sectional final. [Read more…]
