CSD at MICS boys

When: 7:30 p.m. 

Breakdown: This is the only game this week featuring two teams in the Lake Norman Publications’ footprint. MICS lost 70-56 to Victory Christian Center Nov. 29 in its first game of the year and will be coming off consecutive road games before facing PAC 7 1A foe CSD. Demetrious Washington was the leading scorer for the Raptors in the VCC game, with 14 points. The Raptors went 17-9 last year but lost their two leading scorers. CSD started the year 0-2, its first loss coming in overtime to Highland Tech. Look for senior captains Sage Alexander and Brandon Ellington to lead the Spartans in scoring.

When: 7:30 p.m. 

Breakdown: Following a season-opening blowout loss to Independence, the Hopewell boys compiled a 3-1 record entering the Dec. 5 showdown at High Point Central (held after press deadline).

Forward Alvin Cannady is averaging 15.5 points per game  and 6.8 rebounds. And guard Kendyl Lloyd is filling the stat sheet with 2.5 assists, 4.5 steals and 3.5 rebounds. Olympic is 3-0 and led by Joshua Banks, who scored 26 to open the season against Myers Park.

Other than the Providence game, all of Hough’s games have been blowouts; the wins are by 26 and 25, and the loss at Ardrey Kell was by 23. Through three games, the Huskies leading scorer was  junior guard Anna Mroz with 14 points per game. Sophomore guard Carolina Swartz is scoring 12.7 points per game and is third on the team in rebounding with 4.0 a contest.
