SPRING VALLEY - For the first time in several seasons, the Spring Valley High School boys’ basketball team won’t head into a regular season wondering and waiting. Instead of dealing with injuries to top players early on, which often put the Cardinals into a hole they had to spend the entire season trying to get out of, this season’s SVHS team is healthy and ready to go as they begin their season Tuesday evening at home in a non-conference contest vs. Cameron. Tip-off is at 7:30 p.m. “It’s nice to be 100 percent healthy and at full-go,” SV head coach Rob Bosshart said.
SPRING VALLEY - Trying to move up in the standings of such a competitive and top-heavy league as the Dunn-St. Croix Conference is when it comes to girls' basketball is not easy. But Spring Valley High School's team will try to do so and thinks it can do this season with 10 returning letter winners back from a 4-19 squad which finished at the bottom of the D-SC last season at 1-15. The record may not seem like much but four wins was more than the zero wins they had in the 2011-12 season. "We were successful in context," SV's second-year head coach Brady Hoolihan said.

Prescott High School head boys’ basketball coach Nick Johnson does not think the Middle Border Conference will be down in prep boys’ basketball for the 2013-14 season. “I think it will be very competitive league,” Johnson, the Cardinals’ third-year head coach said. “Somerset, Baldwin-Woodville, New Richmond and Ellsworth too, all are going to be tough teams to beat.
