The top teams in Scioto Valley Conference will go head-to-head this week in a battle for first place in girls and boys basketball.

For example, the defending SVC champ Lady Warriors have an (11-1) overall record, with the lone non-conference loss against Miami Trace in their second game of the season. Unioto beat Miami Trace, but lost to Logan Elm and Columbus Hartley. Adena beat Logan Elm.
Unioto is playing without 6'0 center Tori Cox for the rest of the season, lost to ACL surgery over the holidays.
