That surreal feeling became real for the girls basketball players, coaches and fans from Burlington Central and Huntley Friday morning. They may have waked up looking for someone to pinch them to make sure, but the reality is the Rockets and Red Raiders are playing in supersectionals Monday night. Man, how times have changed — at least for this year. We're not talking about two programs here that make a habit of playing basketball on the last Monday of February. To the contrary, this is just Central's second supersectional, and the last one came in 1984, when most of the current Rockets' parents were still in high school themselves. And for Huntley, well, this is totally uncharted waters for the Red Raiders.
