Garfield set to host Buchtel, Ellet in City Series boys basketball championship Friday

By Michael Beaven Published: February 18, 2014

Buchtel and Ellet will meet in the City Series boys basketball postseason championship at 7 p.m. Friday at Garfield High School.

Joe Howard of the Akron Public Schools said Tuesday that the game was originally scheduled for Kenmore, but a leak in the roof of the gymnasium caused the move.

Buchtel is 14-4 overall and 11-1 in the City Series. Ellet is 18-2 overall and 10-2 in the City Series. The two teams split their regular season meetings, with each team winning the away game.

The City Series boys basketball postseason championship has been played at Firestone for the past few years, but was moved due to limited parking because of the construction of the new facility that will house Litchfield Middle School and Firestone High School.
