With Christmas in the rearview mirror, the Butler County High School boys' and girls' basketball teams will take to the court this week in a pair of road tournaments. The Lady Bears will be participating in the Greenwood Holiday Classic at Greenwood High School in Bowling Green, while the Bears will travel to Calhoun, Kentucky for the Advanced Drainage Systems Roundball Roundup at McLean County.

Beech Tree 1570 AM will be broadcasting as many games possible from both tournaments.
