Welcome to the Toledo City League, Pemberville Eastwood.

The City League has not really invited Eastwood, yet, but the Eastwood boys (13-5) are getting a good dose of City basketball this year — having lost to CL final four qualifier Central Catholic (15-2), 56-49, on Dec. 22.

Next, the Eagles open the Division II sectional tournament on Mar. 2 at 6:15 p.m. against Woodward (2-15), and the winner faces Libbey (10-6) in the sectional final, Mar. 5 at 6:15 p.m.

Where are both games at? Clay’s Harold Potter Field House, also a City League facility. If Eastwood can defeat Libbey, the Eagles could face Scott (3-15) two games later in a district final (Mar. 13, 2 p.m.) at Bowling Green State University’s Anderson Arena — named for Harold Anderson, a former basketball coach at Waite.
