Friday

IRMO BOYS AT RICHLAND NORTHEAST

The undefeated Region 4-4A leading Yellow Jackets (21-0) hit the road to challenge third-place Richland Northeast (15-6). The Cavaliers, led by sharp shooters Aaron Scott and Quiron Cooke, are looking to remain above .500 but could be hung up by Irmo’s quick defense. The Yellow Jackets are led by Detrek Browning and Justin McKie.

HEATHWOOD HALL GIRLS AT HAMMOND

With a two-game lead in SCISA Class 3A, including a 30-point victory in their January meeting, the visiting Highlanders (15-7) have an edge on Hammond (15-4). But the Skyhawks, second in the league, have won four of their past five games and could be on a roll. Heathwood averages 63 points per game (the Skyhawks average 54 ppg.) and is led by A’Ja Wilson. The junior averages 29.5 points and 14 rebounds per game. Amoshia Blakney and Amelia Green are Hammond’s pace-setters.
