DECATUR -- The 2016-17 series started off with as big a bang as any in the history of the rivalry: packed house, high drama, overtime finish.

Longtime Decatur Tribune writer Tom McNamara said that it sold out faster than any he's covered in his 62 years covering Soy City sports.

On Friday night the Eisenhower-MacArthur rivalry gets its newest chapter starting with a 7:30 tipoff at Eisenhower.

The Generals come in with a 7-7 record while Eisenhower stands at 4-8.
