Although it may be hard to tell based on how nice the weather has been this week, basketball season is quickly approaching.

The Southern Hills Athletic Conference is hosting a preview for both the girls and boys basketball teams this month.

The girls’ squads will get things started first at North Adams High School. Manchester’s Lady Greyhounds will take on Lynchburg 5 p.m. Friday, Nov. 13, followed by the Lady Rockets of Eastern squaring off against the Fayetteville Lady Rockets 6 p.m. Whiteoak is scheduled to face Peebles 7 p.m. Fairfield and West Union will match up against each other 8 p.m. The final contest of the night pits the host North Adams Lady Devils against the Ripley Lady Blue Jays.

One week later, it’s the boys’ turn. North Adams will start the event at Manchester High School with a match against Eastern on Friday, Nov. 20. Fayetteville takes on Ripley 6 p.m. followed by Whiteoak vs. West Union at 7 p.m. Fairfield and Lynchburg battle at 8 p.m. with Manchester taking on Peebles in the final game of the preview at 9 p.m.

Ripley’s girls basketball team will play their first match of the 2015-2016 season against Georgetown on Saturday, Nov. 21. Eastern Brown and Fayetteville start three days later, on Nov. 24. The Lady Rockets travel to North Adams while the Lady Warriors head to Manchester.

On the boys’ side, regular-season play officially begins when Ripley takes on Batavia Nov. 27. Eastern and Fayetteville both begin play on Dec. 1, when Eastern travels to Williamsburg and Fayetteville visits Blanchester.
