It’s rivalry night in basketball for Highland and Lone Tree. The two schools meet for the second time this season at Highland. In Lone Tree earlier this season, the Highland Husky girls beat the Lions 62-38, but the Lions have put together a couple of good wins lately including avenging an early season loss to Pekin. Lone Tree Head Coach Travis Pierson says heading in to tonight’s matchup the girls are pumped, excited and ready to go. On the boys’ side Lone Tree won the first meeting 49-29, but Highland is coming off a win over Wapello Friday.
