Whale Branch Early College High School has moved its playoff basketball games scheduled for Saturday to Battery Creek High School.
The Whale Branch girls will face defending Class 1-A state champion Hemingway at 6 p.m., while the boys will face C.E Murray at 8 p.m. Hemingway eliminated the Warriors in the third round of last season's playoffs.
Warriors athetics director Carlos Cave said the move, as well as the extra time between games, was to cope with what school administrators expected to be a larger than normal visiting crowd.
