Rare are the times Center Grove and Edinburgh face each other in boys basketball.
So infrequent are the matchups that it’s always worth dusting off the Milan-esque descriptions anytime Johnson County’s largest high school (enrollment 2,459) is scheduled to play its smallest (277).
Tonight’s second semifinal of the Johnson County Tournament at Franklin marks only the second time Center Grove and Edinburgh, who haven’t been regular-season opponents in decades, have met in the county tournament since it was relaunched in 2004. Center Grove beat the Lancers 68-55 in the finals in 2012.
