Basketball is a way of life in western LaGrange County. That was certainly evident Saturday when many residents of Topeka, Emma and Shipshewana trekked down Ind. 5 to Huntington to support the Westview High School boys basketball team in 2A Northern Semistate.
Unranked Westview defeated No. 7 Lewis Cass, 65-58, to advance to this Saturday’s 2A State Championship game against Park Tudor at Banker’s Life Fieldhouse. Tipoff is set for approximately 12:45 p.m.
It is the third time that tradition-rich Westview has qualified for the state title, winning back-to-back championships in 1999 and 2000.
Reaching the state title game in Indiana is an amazing accomplishment in itself. Park Tudor is a tall challenge for Westview, but not an insurmountable one. Underestimate this Westview Warrior team at your own peril.
