MaxPreps Holiday Classic Thursday schedule

OK, it’s time for Day Two of the MaxPreps Desert Classic. You want to get your $12 worth? Head to Cahtedral City today at 11 a.m. and sit there all day. At 11 a.m. you can watch Fort Bend Travis take on AB MIller. Fort Bend features twins Andrew and Aaron Harrison who are headed to Kentucky next year. Following that game you’ve got the host Cathedral City Lions, featuring Christian Wilson who scored 49 points in Wednesday’s opener, facing Godinez. Following that game you’ve got maybe the best matchup of the day in California power Harvard Westlake vs. defending state of Washington champion Rainier Beach of Seattle. That’s three back-to-back great games, and you’ve still got your entire day left.

Another option, especially for those of you old-school fans who are tired of watching the NBA and college be dominated by guards, is a trip to Desert Christian Academy for some big boys in action. At 6:30 p.m. today, Brethren Christian and 7-foot-4 center Mamadou Ndiaye go against the hosts Desert Christian and 6-foot-10 post man Jimmy Roethler.
