The East Husker Conference announced their brackets on Monday for the annual basketball tournament.  The top four seed get home games the first night.  The girls start on Friday with Stanton, Howells-Dodge, West Point-Beemer, and Twin Rivers hosting games.  On Saturday, the boys will be competing at Bancroft-Rosalie, Clarkson/Leigh, Stanton, and TwinRiver.


The (11-5) Lady Cougars are the fifth seed.  They will play at Dodge in the 7:45 p.m. game. Their opponent should be familiar. Northeast drew the twelfth seed (6-10) Oakland-Craig Knights.  The two will face off on Thursday in a regular season game at Oakland  and will come back for a rematch twenty four hours later at Dodge.


The (6-9) boys travel to Twin River (Genoa) for their contest against the sixth seeded  (9-8) West Point-Beemer Cadets.  They square off at 7:45 p.m.


Winning teams play their second round games at the remaining highest seeded team in their block on Monday for girls and Tuesday for boys.  Barring upsets in  other brackets, Northeast should play at Stanton with a first round win by either the boys or girls..

Consolation games are on Thursday and Friday for first round losers.
