‘Kind of weird’, but BCC rolls to win over Norrix in game without fans


‘Kind of weird’, but BCC rolls to win over Norrix in game without fans

It wasn’t a Friday night. There wasn’t a big crowd. Battle Creek Central’s boys varsity basketball team took the floor at the odd time of 5:45 p.m. on Thursday at Kalamazoo Loy Norrix High School.

Despite the uniforms worn by both teams, it looked more like a middle of the week practice. A nearly empty gym. No spectators. The sound of a basketball echoing off the walls with every bounce on the floor. The squeaks of Nikes on the painted surface.

But there was much more at stake than what occurs at a practice. This had the reality and weight of a conference game riding on it, in terms of a win or a loss for both teams. Which is a lot when it comes to these rivals.
