Weather Postpones Southport vs. Reitz

Bad weather forced the highly anticipated showdown between undefeated Evansville Reitz and Southport to be cancelled on Saturday night. The game appears to potentially be rescheduled as a go for next Saturday.

A final decision is expected to be made after the sectional pairings are released on Sunday before making a decision according to Reitz head coach Michael Adams.

Reitz, the #1-ranked team in the state of Indiana, features a potent lineup that includes Jaelen Sanford (Toledo), Alex Stein (Southern Indiana) and high-flying Jacob Norman (Southern Indiana) among others.

Southport is led by sophomore sensation Paul Scruggs, who already holds Indiana, Purdue and Kansas offers. In addition to 6'10 junior post Joey Brunk, who also holds an impressive list of high-major offers and point guard Malik Bennett.
