Mid-Illini race tightens

Bryan Veginski

It's a three-team race in the Mid-Illini Conference girls basketball title chase.

With Morton losing to Dunlap (58-47 Friday) and Canton (62-58, OT, Saturday) over the weekend, the league championship hopes of the Eagles and Lady Giants remained alive.

The Potters and Dunlap currently are 8-3, while Canton is 8-4.

Morton fans will want to pay particular attention to the result of tomorrow's Canton-at-Dunlap game. The Eagles won the first matchup last month.

The rest of the team's schedules to finish up the conference season are:

Canton

Friday vs. Metamora

Dunlap

Friday at East Peoria; Feb. 14 at Limestone

Morton

Friday at Limestone; Feb. 10 vs. Washington; Feb. 12 vs. Metamora

Morton is trying for its third M-I crown in the last five seasons.
