Toledo Whitmer (11-3) will visit Norwalk (14-0) for a boys' basketball game featuring two ranked teams.

Whitmer is ranked No. 4 in the Division I state poll, while Norwalk is right behind at No. 5. It is the first time that two of the top five teams in the poll in Ohio's big school division have ever met at an area school.

As if the rankings weren't enough appeal, the Truckers are 37-1 since the beginning of last season. The lone loss: A 40-32 setback to the Panthers in a Sweet 16 matchup at the Div. I Toledo Regional last March.

Add in what is expected to be a sell-out capacity crowd in excess of 2,300 fans, it's hard not to get excited for Saturday's game.
