As the high school girls basketball season is winding down, the boys season is getting into full swing.

All six area boys teams will be in action this weekend, with 5 of the 6 squads playing twice.

There are two girls games scheduled for Saturday afternoon.

North Central (6-10, 2-4) will play at Eastern Greene (6-9, 4-1) in a Soutwestern Indiana Athletic Conference girls game, starting with the junior varsity at 1 p.m. Saturday.

This will just be the fourth meeting in the series since North Central became a part of the conference. Eastern Greene has won the three previous meetings, including a 70-24 victory at the Class 2A Bloomfield Sectional last year.

Eastern Greene is still battling for a share of the conference crown but the Lady Thunderbirds are trailing North Daviess (6-1) and WRV (6-1).

Union (5-9) will compete at state-ranked North Vermillion. The varsity-only girls game is scheduled to tip at noon Saturday.

The Lady Falcons are currently ranked ninth and have won 18 of their first 20 games.

This is the third meeting between the two. NV has won both, including a 64-38 victory at Dugger last January.

Bloomfield (8-7, 4-2) is the only boys team that will play just once.

The Cardinals will travel to Sullivan County to meet North Central (5-8, 0-3) in a SWIAC game Friday night.

Other games on the Friday schedule includes Class 2 A No. 8 Linton-Stockton (12-2, 4-0) at Eastern Greene (9-5, 3-1) in a conference meeting.

Shakamak (7-8) will play at Class A No. 3 Barr-Reeve, Union (0-13) will host Shoals (2-10) and White River Valley (8-5) will play at Class A No. 4 Loogootee (13-2) to round out the Friday boys schedule.

There are also five boys games on Saturday's schedule, including two SWIAC games -- Clay City (8-6, 2-1) at WRV (8-5, 1-2) and Shakamak (7-8, 2-3) at North Central.

Saturday's non-conference match-ups include Linton-Stockton at South Knox (2-11), Owen Valley (6-8) at Union and Eastern Greene at Bedford North Lawrence (6-8).

The Miners are the hottest team in the area. Linton-Stockton is riding a six-game winning streak, including conference victories over North Daviess and Union within the last week.

Dess Fougerousse and Austin Karazsia pace the Miners offensively, combining for 40-plus points per game.

But L-S coach Joey Hart said he has been impressed with their teamwork and unselfishness, including a 36-14 dismantling of North Daviess.

Eastern Greene coach Levi Carmichael said his Thunderbirds battled back against Sullivan before losing 72-63 on Jan. 18.

"We were much more competitive than we had been in our last 4-5 games,"  said Carmichael. "We just dug too big of a hole to get out of it. But we just want to build on that effort.

"We are playing two more good teams this weekend. We knew that once we got to January, we would see what kind of team we really are because our schedule gets a lot tougher. We just want the kids to continue to buy into what we are doing and play together no matter what. We want to keep working toward playing our best basketball in March."

Tyler Brough scored 30 in the loss at Sullivan. Carmichael tweaked his line-up, starting freshmen Trevor Yoho at center and bringing Nathan Sparks off the bench.

Eastern Greene has won 21 of the past 25 meetings with the Miners, including a 56-36 victory at Linton last year.

The Thunderbirds defeated BNL, coached by Jaime Hudson, 67-52 in Greene County last year. The Stars have won 3 of 5 meetings in the series.

Mark Rohrer is in his first season at South Knox. The Spartans have lost 6 of 7, but three of those losses have been by a combined 14 points.

Although the Spartans have won 11 and lost five in the most recent meetings with the Miners, Linton-Stockton beat SK 62-40 a year ago at Linton.

Bloomfield coach Matt Britton and his Cardinals have lost 5 of 7, but are coming off of a 20-point win at Shoals. They lost by six at Loogootee on Jan. 18 after leading for 3 1/2 quarters and are playing better since a disappointing performance at the county tournament.

"We have been getting solid play lately from a lot of different players,"  said Britton. "North Central is a very young team that is getting better.

"This will be another challenging road game in the conference."

Cardinal forward Kyle Robinson is coming off of a 16-point, 14-rebound game at Shoals and Jared Myers made 13 of 16 free throws as he finished with 19 points in that 55-35 victory.

Union has now lost 18 straight games, including falling at Linton-Stockton Tuesday night. Union has dropped all 13 games this season.

UHS coach Chip Langley said it is good to have senior forward Ethan Fettig back in the line-up, after missing six games. He added they continue to struggle with their ball handling.

Union has not won since a 41-40 victory at Shoals on Jan. 27, 2012.

The Bulldogs own a 9-6 advantage in the past 15 meetings with the Jug Rox, who are coached by Worthington graduate Brian Smith.

When Owen Valley visits Dugger on Saturday night, it will be the first meeting between the Patriots and Bulldogs in 12 years.

Owen Valley defeated Union 68-48 on Jan. 30, 2001. This will just be the third time they have met. The Bulldogs won the other meeting 82-60, back in 2000 when UHS went all the way to the Class A State championship game.

Chad Smith is in his second season in charge of the Patriots, who have won 3 of 4 with their only loss to Bloomington North.

WRV is coming off of a two-point loss to Shakamak and a four-point setback against Sullivan, both at home last weekend.

The Wolverines are scoring 48.5 points per game while allowing 44. WRV and Clay City have split their last 24 meetings. The Eels have won 5 of 7 for coach Vance Edmondson, including a 55-48 win over Brown County. The Eels will play at North Daviess Friday as part of a double SWIAC weekend.

Coach Mike Wagoner's Loogootee Lions are still ranked among the best in Class A. They have won three straight after a six-point loss to North Daviess.

WRV took out the Lions 53-44 in overtime last season, but LHS has won 10 of the last 15 meetings with the Wolverines.

Shakamak is coming off wins over WRV and West Vigo last weekend as the Lakers inched closer to .500.

Coach Bryan Hughes's Barr-Reeve Vikings are perfect in 15 games, with the exception being a 50-47 overtime loser against Loogootee.

The Vikes are only allowing 36 points per game, 19 less than they score.

B-R won 65-45 a year ago at Jasonville, giving them a 5-1 advantage in the series.

The Lakers and North Central will be meeting for the 29th time in the past 15 seasons. Shakamak has won 23 of 28, including a 65-37 victory over the T-Birds earlier this month at the Greene County Invitational.

Laker guard Brodie Crowe continues to lead the area in scoring.

Tip-off at all of the boys games are set to begin with junior varsity play at 6 p.m. with the varsity to follow.
