Findlay and Lima Senior will square off for the third time this season when the Trojans and Spartans clash at 6:15 p.m. today in the Division I boys basketball sectional final at Otsego High School.
Findlay (16-5) swept Lima Senior (10-13) this season, posting a 76-53 win at Lima Senior on Dec. 20 and a 54-39 victory three weeks ago at FHS. The Trojans had won four straight games before falling to Three Rivers Athletic Conference champion Toledo Central Catholic (66-48) in the final game of the regular season.
The No. 2 seeded team in the Otsego Sectional, Findlay took a first-round bye for the tournament.
Lima Senior enters the contest on a bit of a roll. The Spartans ended regular seasons with wins over Mansfield Senior (73-66), a state-ranked team earlier in the season, and Toledo St. Francis (77-74), then beat Bowling Green 70-48 in Wednesday’s sectional opener.
Today’s winners will face either Perrysburg or Anthony Wayne 7 p.m. next Thursday at Otsego in the district semifinals.
