As the transition is made from fall sports to basketball, the Ava Bear Booster Club will host its annual Basketball Tip-Off Monday night, Nov. 17.
The basketball spotlight will begin at 6 p.m. and will give parents and fans an opportunity to not only meet this year’s Bears and Lady Bears teams, but also a chance to meet the coaches.
