Manual is back at the state basketball finals for fourth time in 11 years.
The Rams are hoping all of Peoria supports them as they try and capture their first state title since the 1990’s.
“There’s definitely been a lot of talk on Twitter from every school that says they will come down to support us,” said Manual junior center Joshua Ivory. “Hopefully that’s true because we definitely need everyone from Peoria to support us. Definitely the (area code) 309 can come together and be a family.”
Manual plays East St. Louis in the Class 3A state semifinals at Carver Arena Friday at 1 p.m.
