Greene Central vs Farmville Central

This is a rematch of a game that happened recently, Greene Central would go on to win that game but for Round 2 Farmville Central will be the home team. FCHS 2020 Guard Justin Wright has been playing at a high level and is ranked in the top 20 in the state for his class. 2021 Guard Terquavion Smith is coming off a 21 Point game against Ayden Grifton and will be needed in this matchup. Greene Central: 2019 Forward Imajee Dodd is the name that many people know, due to his skillset he already has a high amount of offers. However this is far from a one man show, 2018 Guard Donquez Davis can run the offense well and 2019 Forward Donte Johnson at 6’5 can be productive inside.

Northside-Pinetown vs Riverside HS

This matchup could get very interesting as it features two top guards from the eastern side of the state. Riverside HS Senior Guard Jadakis Bonds is a multi-sport athlete who can score the ball and defend at a high level. On the other side of this matchup is Sophomore Guard Rashod Smith who is smaller in height, but is a bigtime talent and can score at a high level.

Hoke County vs 71st HS

Hoke County has been rolling so far this season only losing one game to  talented Christ School squad, with Seniors Dakari Johnson & Silas Love getting the job done. In this matchup 71st is the smaller team but they have two attributes that can cause issues: Speed and Defense, when they are locked in and applying constant pressure they can cause havoc. Senior Guard Dontravious Byrd and Junior Forward Jaden Scriven will need to have bigtime nights for the squad to get the win.

Jack Britt vs Lumberton

Jack Britt has been successful so far this season and has a record of 4-1, Junior Wing Calvin Washington has put together some nice games, including a 29 Point game in a win over South View. Lumberton will continue to look to their backcourt in Senior Guard Steph Lloyd & Sophomore Guard Jordan McNeill as they have been outstanding so far this season. The duo combined for 41 points in their last game against Hoke County High.

Village Christian vs Wesleyan Christian

Both of these teams have competed for NCISAA Championships in recent seasons with Village winning the last two for 2A. This game is jam packed with D1 prospects and we can expect a high amount of scoring and competitiveness throughout the night.

Overhills HS vs Southern Lee

Overhills Junior Guard Zavian McLean stock is on the rise, he has been on a mission since the season started averaging over 25 PPG. Southern Lee won’t be an easy game, they have been playing at a nice level and are 7-0 on the season.

Westover vs EE Smith

This game is a rivalry game, EE Smith has been struggling so far but we all know that teams tend to lay their best in these types of games. Westover has been pretty successful this so far with a record of 4-0, they feature Unsigned Senior Forward Jalin Thorne as well as talented 2019 guards.
