01/10/2013 - LNE, LSW, Pius X Boys Participating In Nebraska Prep Classic
By Jeff Motz

RALSTON -- Three Lincoln teams are participating in this weekend's Nebraska Prep Classic basketball showcase at the brand new Ralston Arena in Ralston.

Among the teams playing Saturday is Lincoln Southwest, who will face Omaha Creighton Prep at 4:45pm. Size and quickness in favor of the Silver Hawks may be the difference according to Prep head coach Josh Luedtke. 

Other games on Saturday feature the Lincoln Northeast boys in a Class A vs. Class B match up with Gretna at 3:15pm, and Lincoln Pius X opens up the Saturday session against Ralston at 1:45pm.  You can hear all three Lincoln games on with Thom Corritore on the play-by-play.  There will be no feed available for mobile phone users.

Omaha promoter Jim Huffman says this is a great opportunity to expose high school basketball in Nebraska.  "We're excited and we're trying to get more of that (interest) happening as we go along.  We're certainly hope this works for us, so we can come back for years to come," Huffman said.  As far as the Ralston Arena, Huffman said "this is the perfect facility for us."

Opening this past October, the Ralston Arena has a seating capacity of nearly 4,700 for basketball.  The University of Nebraska-Omaha mens basketball team plays their home games at the arena and shares time with the Omaha Lancers of the United States Hockey League.

Two out of state schools, Sioux City (Iowa) Heelan and Topeka (Kansas) Highland Park, are participating in the Prep Classic.  The Heelan girls play Bellevue West at 6:15pm Saturday, while the Heelan boys play Class A third-ranked Papillion-LaVista at 7:45pm.  Highland Park will face the Bellevue West boys to conclude the session at 9:15pm. 
Friday's schedule features Papillion-LaVista South girls against Millard North at 4pm, followed by the Omaha Benson girls against Gretna at 5:30pm.  For the first time since 1975, Omaha Benson will play Boys Town at 7pm and Papillion-LaVista South boys play Millard North at 8:30pm Friday.
