RICHLAND NORTHEAST BOYS AT SPRING VALLEY

Spring Valley has a solid hold on a No. 2 seed from Region 4-4A but is looking to snap a two-game losing streak before the playoffs. When the Cavaliers and host Vikings met in January, Spring Valley won by 8. Led by Dominique Taylor and P.J. Dozier, the Vikings’ defense must limit Richland Northeast’s perimeter game, which is bolstered by shooting from Quiron Cooke and Aaron Scott. Look for the Cavaliers’ Kendall Benjamin and Devante Anderson to make things physical in the post.
