GREENE COUNTY — They had so much fun playing against each other the first time, why not play again?

Division IV teams Xenia Legacy Christian Academy (the No. 5 seed) and No. 9-seed Cedarville will meet up in the first round of the sectional tournament, at 2 p.m. Saturday Feb. 25 up at Troy High School. The two teams opened up the regular season against each other, when LCA won at Cedarville by a 63-50 score.

There’s a chance that two Division I Greene County area schools could play each other in that sectional tournament’s second round: Greater Western Ohio Conference American South division rivals Fairborn and Xenia could meet up on Feb. 28, provided they both win their first-round contests.
