The basketball season opens for most teams around the state on Friday evening. Over in Shelby the Whippets with only one returning letterman in Tristan Kehres will take the court in their new gymnasium as they take on the Madison Rams. Both coaches Troy Schwemley at Shelby and Tim Mergel at Madison say they would like to have more time to prepare, especially with the season beginning a week earlier than last year. As it is, they both say they will have their teams ready to go. Shelby currently holds a four year winning streak over Madison on opening night with the last Madison win over Shelby in the opener coming back during the 2008-'09 season when the Rams won at Wayne E. Miller 63-43, as Madison would go on to win the OCC that season. Shelby won last years contest at Madison 35-34 and would finish 2012-'13 at 12-9, while the Rams went through a tough 2-20 season. The Rams may have an advantage this season returning several lettermen from a year ago, some who played as freshman in Bill Buckley and Zane Harris. Also back with varsity time for Madison are Cody Harris, Coy Vantilburg and Bryce Luckie. While Friday's game will be the first for the boys team at Shelby, the Whippet girls played the first official game in their new gymnasium last Friday beating Plymouth 57-30. Friday's contest will also be the WMFD-TV Game of the Week with the tip live at about 7:35pm. The game will also be replayed Saturday morning at 8:30am.
