  • Rangers could go long way

    Forest Park won its Class 2A boys basketball regional Saturday and will play Indianapolis Scecina in the Washington semistate Saturday at 3 p.m.
    The Rangers are 24-4 and Scecina is 19-9, so the Rangers should be favored.
    In fact the Rangers appear to have a good chance to win their third state title in 14 years.
    Local fans who saw the Rangers trail South Spencer most of the way in a first-round sectional game only to win by one point on a last-second shot might wonder how the Rangers could go so far.
