Fifth ACBF Faculty Tourney commences tonight at SJP

Can anyone defeat Pymatuning Valley?

That, basketball fans, is the question.

However, you'll have to wait until Tuesday night to at least begin to answer that question.

The fifth annual Ashtabula County Basketball Foundation Faculty Tournament will begin tonight with a pair of opening-round games at SS. John and Paul High School's Mahoney Gymnasium.

As the games begin, all eyes are on the Lakers, who have stormed through the first four tournaments undefeated. maintaining possession of the traveling trophy that goes to the championship team.

In fact, the closest game the Lakers have played in the four-year history of the event was their 12-point win over Jefferson in the semifinals a year ago.

Speaking of Jefferson, it will take on Edgewood in the tournament's first game at 6 p.m., with the host Heralds welcoming Geneva in the nightcap.

In Tuesday's lidlifter, Conneaut will take on Lakeside, a late entry into the event after initially saying it would not participate, with the four-time defending champion Lakers being challenged by archrival Grand Valley in the second game.

The semifinals will be played on Wednesday night, with the title game set for Friday at 6 p.m. (WWOW). The second ACBF Senior Boys Classic will follow the faculty tourney title game on Friday night.
