Ironmen junior Zach Cleveland goes for the ball in a 2021 regular season game against the Bloomington Raiders.

The Normal Community boys and girls basketball programs both advanced to the semi-final round of the Big 12 Conference tournament after their quarter-final victories yesterday, March 11.

The Ironmen earned a 56-37 win at home against the Urbana Tigers, while the Lady Iron took home a 46-41 victory over the Bloomington Raiders. 

Tonight, the Lady Iron will compete against Peoria Notre Dame as the Ironmen take on Peoria High  — teams both programs defeated in the regular season.

While spectators will not be allowed at either game, both games can be watched live starting at 8 p.m. via livestream.
