1/24/20 Basketball: Chi Hi 85-Eau Claire North 81 2OT
Chi Hi (9-4, 5-1 Big Rivers Conference) had gotten the best of Eau Claire North (9-2, 4-2 BRC) when the teams played early last week, but when they met again Eau Claire Friday night, no one could have predicted the instant classic that would ensue. Chi Hi raced out to a 21 point lead in the first half, but the Huskies ralled all the way back. Regulation was not enough to decide it, and neither was the first overtime before Chi Hi finally prevailed for a season sweep.
