Central Nebraska’s Sports Source looks forward to its first high school basketball broadcast of 2020 tonight when Broken Bow hosts Hershey for a girls and boys doubleheader. The Broken Bow girls enter tonight’s game at 6-2 after finishing as runner-up to Class B rated Bennington in the finals of the Adams Central Holiday Tournament last week. The Hershey girls enter tonight’s game at 3-3 with wins over Cozad, Perkins County, and Kimball while their losses have come to Gothenburg, Ogallala, and North Platte St. Pat’s. In the boys game, Broken Bow will be looking for their first win of the season.

The Indians will welcome in a Hershey team that is 4-2 with wins coming against Perkins County, Gothenburg, Cozad, and Kimball while their losses have been to North Platte St. Pat’s and Ogallala. Tonight’s games will be broadcast on KBBN 95.3 FM and on kbbn.com with coverage starting with the girls varsity game scheduled to tip off at 6pm.
