The host Spartans from St. Joseph-Ogden High School will take the floor against Pleasant Plains in the nightcap starting at approximately 7:30p.

The varsity contests will be held in the main gymnasium at St. Joseph-Ogden High School and JV games played at the Middle School on the southeast side of town.
