The Salisbury and Southern Lehigh girls have already played twice this season, and they play again Tuesday night in the Colonial League playoffs.

It's playoff time in the Colonial League for basketball teams. And it's getting tougher and tougher to remember the last time Southern Lehigh's girls weren't league champs instead of the other way around. The Spartans have made winning this tournament an expectation within their program and they'll be trying to do that again starting tomorrow night. We get an interesting semifinal matchup tomorrow night between Southern Lehigh and Salisbury, two teams who are in the same division and played just a few days ago. The Spartans won that game but not easily, and it's definitely a game that opens their eyes a little. Winning a title is the goal, but they'll have to play well just to get into the championship game.  For Salisbury, it's been a while between playoff berths. But the Falcons have earned a spot this year and now they can make some amends. They blew a double digit lead last week in a loss to Southern Lehigh. Tomorrow night, on a neutral court, they get the chance to make up for that but they understand they'll have to play even better than in the regular season.
