Athens Basketball: Athens takes on River Valley in final home game of regular season

Athens will play in its final home game of the regular season when it takes on River Valley on Tuesday.

The Bulldogs (5-12, 4-5 Tri-Valley Conference-Ohio) are heading into Tuesday's game on a short win streak. They've exploded on offense to win their last two games. In their latest win over Meigs, the Bulldogs scored 61 points and blew out the Marauders by 25 points.

Athens has a chance to keep its win streak alive against River Valley (3-13, 2-6 TVC-Ohio). If it wants to close out its home schedule on a positive note, Athens needs a win.

Game information

Opponent: River Valley

Location: Athens High School

Time: 7:30 p.m.

What to know

Athens has already faced River Valley once before. The two last met on Jan. 29 in Bidwell, where Athens won its first road game of the season 57-46 and snapped a three-game losing streak.

Despite River Valley's record being one of the worst in the TVC-Ohio, it has played fairly well while on the road against conference opponents. Both of River Valley's conference wins have come on the road. Athens' season is winding down, and it has the chance to be .500 in conference play for the first time this season. If it can beat River Valley again, it will be in good shape heading into the final stretch of its schedule.
