Games in roughly 46 hours the Rantoul Township High School boys basketball team will play at the second annual Taylorville Holiday Tournament.
The schedule, which was released on Dec. 3, has the Eagles playing the host Tornadoes at 8 p.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 26, Charleston at 11:30 a.m. on Thursday, Dec. 27, Mattoon at 6:30 p.m. on Dec. 27, Galesburg at 11:30 a.m. on Friday, Dec. 28 and tournament newcomer Rochester at 5 p.m. on Dec. 28.
The addition of Rochester bumps the field up to six.
The Eagles placed second in last year’s inaugural round-robin event, losing out on a tiebreaker to Galesburg for fewest points allowed since those two teams, along with Charleston, all finished 3-1.
If more than two teams are tied this year, the team with the best free throw percentage will win the tournament.
