Festivities for School of the Osage Courtwarming have been moved up a day due to dangerous temps and snow in the forecast. Two students – senior, Gavin Black and junior, Andrew Groos – have some thoughts to share about Courtwarming and the effects of the weather on their special game night.

How do you feel about the weather coming up? Will this affect anything?
The weather forecast shows a high of 40 degrees and a low of 11 degrees. There is an 85% chance of snow and rain.
– Gavin: The weather kind of sucks due to Lebanon being a big opponent, and with Courtwarming, it all feels rushed. I think we will be fine, though.
– Andrew: I hope it doesn’t affect anything, and, really, it shouldn’t. It’s all in the head, and it’s all a mindset that we won’t let happen to us.

Do you feel as prepared for the Courtwarming game now that you missed your game on Monday?
– Gavin: I think we will be prepared. No 2 teams will prepare you the same way, so a game can help, but we can replicate it just as much in practice.
– Andrew: Probably not because we have yet to have a practice. Our only practice is on Wednesday.

Do you think very many fans will pop out to the Courtwarming game now that they moved it to Thursday evening instead of Friday night when the weather is supposed to be bad?
– Gavin: I hope so, but if we had the game on Friday then nobody would come to the game as much as Thursday’s game.
– Andrew: Probably not because people may have already had plans, but there could be some die-hard fans.

How does it feel that both girls’ and boys’ basketball play on the same night rather than on separate nights?
– Gavin: I think this will be good recognition for the girls.
– Andrew: I don’t think it’s weird since we do throwback games together, so it’s kind of similar.
