The Waco High-University crosstown basketball matchup always tends to generate a lot of fan excitement. School district officials know that, and are trying to plan accordingly.
Both matchups between the schools have been moved from their original locations on campus to McLennan Community College’s Highlands Gym, to accommodate potentially bigger crowds. The teams will meet in the first installment on Friday, with Waco High serving as the home team. The girls’ varsity game will start at 5:30 p.m., with the boys to follow at 7.
The teams will meet again at The Highlands on Feb. 7, with University acting as the home team.
