There are over 50 high school boys basketball games to be played on this first Saturday of 2016 but none can be of any higher interest than the Hampden vs Brewer matchup.

Just look at the Class A North Heal Points. Brewer is 7-0 and ranked #1. Hampden is 6-0 and ranked #2.

As the old saying goes...something has got to give.

The Witches are coming off Wednesday night's 54-43 win over Bangor. The Broncos have not played since beating Lawrence back on December 22nd.

NOTE:  Sports Radio 92.9 The Ticket and 929theticket.com provide live coverage of the Hampden/Brewer girls/boys doubleheader with the girls game at 6pm and the boys at 7:30pm...The #5 Brewer girls are 3-4, the  #7 Hampden girls are 3-3.
