The Cumberland County elementary varsity basketball league resumes Monday night after taking last week off due to the short week. Monday's schedule is Homestead at Crab Orchard; Stone at South; Brown at Martin and Pleasant Hill at Pine View. North has the open date.
With Monday's schedule, the league will be playing twice a week until school dismisses Dec. 19 for the holidays, leading up to the season-ending tournament tentatively scheduled Jan. 27 and 30, and Feb. 3, 6 and 8. Those dates are subject to change due to weather and gym availability at both CCHS and SMHS, as the western division early rounds are held at CCHS and the eastern division at SMHS.
Nothing is listed on the January portion of the schedule. Some schools will be playing in both elementary state tournaments that month.
