While the college kids own the day on the hardwood Sunday, high school tournaments continue play on Monday, like at Arnold, where it's will by Championship Day at the 9th annual Marlin Christmas Classic.
Coach Robert Britton and his Marlins went 1-1 in their first two matchups of the tournament. While the boy's bracket won't have a third or fifth place game due to scheduling constraints with the other programs, Arnold will face off against the Memorial Mustangs out of Texas at 3:00 Monday afternoon.
Britton and his boys are 5-7 on the season.
Also out at Arnold, the Lady Marlins will battle with a familiar foe in their fifth place matchup of the Christmas Classic, when they face off against the Mosley Lady Dolphins at 10 AM Monday in the first game of the day.
Both teams are 0-2 in the tourney and looking for their first win.
