It’s a showdown for the lead in the North Piedmont Conference tonight for the Alexander Central Men’s Basketball Team. Coach Ed Wills and his Cougars will travel to Lake Norman in a pivotal showdown.
Lake Norman sits atop the league standings at 8-1 and lead ACHS by just a half game as the Blue and Gold enter the contest at 8-2. Lake Norman pulled out a 54-52 win in overtime back on January 3rd in Taylorsville. The Cougars know a win tonight and that half-game deficit becomes a half-game lead.
For the Lady Cougars it’s a chance to keep a grip on second place in the league behind undefeated North Iredell. The Ladies enter the contest at 7-3 in conference action while Lake Norman is 5-4.
