Listen live Thursday evening via JoeInsider.com as Parchment hosts Delton Kellogg in a varsity basketball doubleheader. The games were originally scheduled for Tuesday, but it was pushed back two days due to Tuesday’s poor weather conditions. The girls were also originally to play at Delton, but that game was moved to Parchment along with the boys game.
It’s the second meeting this season between the longtime rivals with DK hosting and winning the first boys meeting last month 53-52. This is the second consecutive year they’ve played a basketball series since splitting into different leagues after the Kalamazoo Valley Association folded. Parchment won both contests last season, 61-35 at home and 52-34 on the road.
Parchment enters the game at 7-9, hoping to snap a five-game skid. They’re third in the BCS-Red division at 4-4. Delton Kellogg sits at 6-9 and sixth at 3-7 within the loaded SAC Valley division.
In the girls contest, DK is 11-3 overall and second in the SAC Valley at 8-3. Parchment is 4-8 overall and 3-4 within the BCS-Red. DK won the initial girls meeting 38-19.
