Salem Travels to Effingham Tonight

The Salem Wildcats have three regular season games remaining

before post-season play begins, and after tonight, just one more week remains

in the regular season.

The Wildcats are on the road tonight for their

second-to-last Apollo Conference game of the season as they take on the

Effingham Flaming Hearts. Effingham sits atop the league with a 7-1 conference

record, and a win tonight will give Effingham High School an Apollo Conference

Championship sweep of the 2012-13 basketball season.

Salem junior Nick Conklin has been on a tear as of late,

scoring 55 points over Salem’s previous two games, including 24 in Salem’s loss

earlier this week to the hot-shooting Olney Tigers. Olney hit ten tree-pointers

in the Tuesday night contest to win 64-50.

Salem’s last win came on the road at Paris on January 25,

and the Cats lost 71-44 in their previous meeting with Effingham back on

January 11.

The Wildcats and the Hearts meet tonight in Effingham at

7:45. Catch the game with Bill Hawley and Greg Mehochko on 100.1 FM WJBD and
