Butte Central at Dillon, 7:15 p.m.
The Maroons (6-1 overall, 3-1 conference) hit the road to take on the Beavers (5-2, 2-1) in a key Southwestern A showdown in the B.W. Lodge Gymnasium.
The game is a makeup from an early COVID-19 postponement and the first of two meetings between the rivals in less than a week. The Beavers come to Butte on Saturday.
The Maroons are coming off Saturday’s 38-31 win over Hamilton at the MAC. Sofee Thatcher scored 15 points and Brooke Badovinac tossed in nine to lead BC in that win.
The Beavers have won three straight and four out of five after knocking off Frenchtown 49-40 Saturday in Dillon. Ainsley Shipman’s 12.5 points and 7.3 rebounds per game leads the Beavers. Lauryn Petersen adds 10.1 points per game.
