The Sully Buttes Chargers boys and girls basketball teams will travel down to Murdo on Tuesday as they face the Jones County Coyotes in a doubleheader.
The Charger girls are coming off a win on Saturday over the Warner Monarchs as they are back to .500 at 7-7 and sitting in fourth place in the Region 2B standings and would host the Faulkton Area Trojans in the first round of the tournament if the season would end today. The Lady Coyotes are coming in having won three straight and are 8-3 overall on the year. Jones County beat Kadoka Area by 20 back on January 22.
The Charger boys dropped its last game to a tough Warner team on Saturday home as they went 1-2 last week in the friendly confines of the Onida gym. Now they travel to face the Coyotes who are 5-8. Jones County’s Wyatt Olson will be the focal point of the Chargers defensive game plan as he has a smooth stroke from anywhere on the floor.
The doubleheader begins with the Charger girls game around 6:15 with the boys game to follow. Both games can be heard on Country 95.3 and pierrecountry.com with the voice of the Sully Buttes Chargers, DT Meyer on the call.
