The Section 5A boys’ basketball title game that was moved to Alexandria tonight from the original location of Crosby-Ironton High School is on as scheduled despite school closings for the two programs involved.


The move was made earlier this week in anticipation of the big crowds that are expected for this game. The Jefferson High School gymnasium can hold close to 2,500 people compared to less than 1,700 in Crosby-Ironton.
