Boys basketball: Spartans earn No. 12 seed in state tournament

Friday afternoon, the Delaware Interscholastic Athletic Association officially released the 2018 DIAA basketball state tournament brackets.

Following its 14-6 regular season, head coach Michael Starkey and his Lake Forest boys’ squad earned the No. 12 seed in the tournament. The seeding, which marks the team’s second consecutive state tournament appearance, means Lake Forest will be given the opportunity to host the first-round game.

On Tuesday, Feb. 27, Lake Forest will host No. 21 Christiana at Lake Forest High School to tip-off the tournament.

The team will be riding a five-game win streak heading into next week’s tournament action.
