With basketball season officially starting this week, Caleb and Lizi put together a special episode to discuss some of the expectations for the hardwood.
For the most part, football season has ended around Tallapoosa and Coosa counties. But don’t expect Friday nights for the area athletes to free up any time soon as basketball season officially kick starts next week.

In a battle of winless teams, something had to give and the Central Coosa Cougars got their first win in over three years, beating the Talladega County Central Tigers, 42-14, Friday to end their 2019 campaign on a high note after a rough couple seasons.
It's time to wrap up the regular season as Caleb and Lizi quickly discuss the big coaching news out of Dadeville last week (5:48) before diving into the Game of the Week between Tallassee and Elmore County (9:00).
