Less than two weeks after the Grand Valley's biggest rivalry hit the hardwood at Fruita Monument High School, Grand Junction and Fruita meet again, but this time on the Tigers' home court.
In their last meeting, the Tigers dominated early on leading the way to a 19 point victory over the Wildcats. A win, this time, for Grand Junction would help the Tigers maintain first place in the league. At 3-4 in league, the Wildcats aren't playing for dibs on a league title, but this final regular season game isn't the end for the Wildcats either. After dropping three out of their last four, they need to build off of a win heading into the postseason.
"We always want to get a win against Junction," said senior Gunner Rigsby. "A win would set us up pretty well for the playoffs, so we just have to go out and play hard tomorrow and hopefully get a W."
"Obviously anytime you play Junction, no matter what the records, are you want to get a victory," said Head Coach Billy Dreher. "It's always a great atmosphere, and on top of that we are in the playoffs, so we would like to get back on a winning track and get some momentum."
Tip-off is a 7 p.m. Tuesday at Grand Junction High School.
