Turn back the clock: The old school boys basketball rivalry between Altoona and Greater Johnstown will be renewed this evening at West Side Elementary.

Altoona enters the game with a 2-6 mark while Class AAA Johnstown is 4-4.

The game has no league significance for either team but the pride of the two towns is once again on the line.

Just saying: I have always had the policy of not criticizing referees at a basketball game (or those in any other sport for that matter), since that’s not my area of expertise.

But, I also think that the athletes on the field of play should determine the outcome of a contest and not those that are overseeing the action.
