Now that the holidays are over and we are into 2018, the focus shifts a bit for area prep basketball teams.

Early in the season, its about tournaments and finding a lineup that works.

In the new year, it’s about league play and getting ready to make a run at the playoffs.

For the Gridley High School basketball teams, it’s about time for the BVL season to start.

The Bulldog boys (11-5) started BVL play by hosting 2-13 Orland last week, while the Bulldog girls (8-8) travelled to Orland.

Both Gridley teams have been playing pretty good basketball of late.
