Last year, the Monticello Sages and Paxton-Buckley-Loda Panthers played three matchups, a blowout loss each way and then a classic overtime sectional final at Monticello High School.
Tonight, the two teams meet again in Paxton for the first of another possible three meetings this season.
The Panthers are slated to be at Monticello's Holiday Hoopla next week and it is possible the two sides meet again in the postseason.
The Sages have largely played uncontested this year, with three of their four wins by 20-plus points and only one opponent getting beyond the 30-point threshold.
Coach Kevin Roy expects P-B-L to bring excellent gaurd play into tonight's matchup and be a good test for his team, as the Holiday Hoopla looms in the background.
The Panthers enter play tonight 4-1 overall while Monticello is undefeated on the young season, at 4-0.
