APPROACHING 1500 ... The Marian boys basketball team is nearing a milestone game in the program's history.

Veteran Colt scorekeeper and record-keeping historian Mark Keip said that Marian is on the verge of playing the 1,500th game in its history.

Marian entered this season with an all-time record of 904-580. The Colts are currently 11-3 this season, which improves that mark to 915-583 (a .611 winning percentage).

Barring postponements, the Colts are scheduled to play Jim Thorpe tonight and will then play their 1,500th game on Friday at Schuylkill Haven.
