The Gibraltar boys’ basketball team has a lot of traveling in store for them this weekend’s WIAA Division 5 regionals. They open up play Friday night against Florence beginning at 7 p.m. It comes after a dominating 81-41 victory on Tuesday against Lena that saw all 15 players get action and 12 get into the scorebook. Evan Henry and Andras Szakala led the team in scoring with 14 points apiece. The Bobcats earned their spot in the regional semifinal with a 78-54 victory over Goodman/Pembine. The goal on defense for the Vikings is to slow down Kaden Schuls’ scoring (20.4 points/game) and Evan Beaster’s dominance on the glass (16.1 rebounds/game).
The team will stay in Iron Mountain, Michigan regardless of the result, but a win will let them wait to see if they travel an hour northwest to face Phelps or drive home to host Gillett on Saturday. Tim Kowols and Jon Bregman will have the call beginning at 6:45 p.m. with the pregame show and the opening tip at 7 p.m. on 105.1 The Viking.
