VIDEO: Breaking down this weekend’s key basketball match-ups

STEAMBOAT SPRINGS — This weekend will feature some big match-ups that could determine the fate of both Class 4A and Class 2A Western Slope League basketball. The No. 4 Steamboat Springs boys basketball team has a loaded week with back-to-back games against Battle Mountain on Tuesday and Wednesday before heading to Glenwood Springs on Saturday. Glenwood Springs is the only team in the Class 4A Western Slope with an undefeated league record and last defeated the Sailors, 54-51, on Jan. 19. The No. 8 Soroco girls will host No. 6 Meeker on Thursday night. Meeker is undefeated in Class 2A Western Slope League play, while the Rams have one loss to De Beque.
