Tobey Billups

Connersville’s Tobey Billups scores a basket in front of Union County’s Alex VanWinkle Wednesday night at Spartan Bowl. The game was a make-up from the traditional night-before-Thanksgiving contest. Connersville won the contest 61-29.

It didn’t have that night-before-Thanksgiving feel, and the crowd was much smaller than normal, but the Connersville Spartans and Union County Patriots revisited their boys basketball rivalry at Spartan Bowl on Wednesday night.

Originally scheduled for the night of November 25th, the two teams finally tipped off a month late.
