TRAC conference play in boys varsity basketball began on Friday, December 7, 2012 with a truncated schedule due Whitmer and Central Catholic’s appearance in the state Division I and Division II championship football game the previous week.

A full slate of league games gets underway on Friday, December 14.

On Wednesday, December 12, an early season match-up between TRAC powerhouses Whitmer and St. John’s Jesuit is scheduled for a 7:30 tip-off at St. John’s.  The games features top Big 10 recruits senior Nigel Hayes, of Whitmer, who has signed with Wisconsin, and St. John’s senior, Marc Loving, who will be suiting up for the Ohio State Buckeyes.

It is expected that both teams will contend for the TRAC conference title this season.
