The Monticello Sages boy's basketball team will get another early-season test tonight when they host Bloomington Central Catholic in Illini Prairie Conference action at the Sievers Center.
Monticello is coming off a Saturday afternoon win over Warrensburg-Latham, 57-39. Monticello enters play 5-1 overall and 3-1 in the Illini Prairie. Monticello barely skated by Rantoul Friday night 43-41. The Sages lost in overtime last Wednesday night to Champaign St. Thomas More and played a close game IVC on February 12, in a stretch of five-of-six games opposite private schools or 3A teams.
BCC comes in with a record of 3-6, but Coach Jason Welch's team comes in well tested, with losses to state-ranked Normal U-High, Normal Community, Moline and Rock Island.
