It may not be football, but Hunter Huss savored Saturday’s trip to Charlotte Catholic more than most.

CHARLOTTE – In recent years, Charlotte Catholic has been where title dreams for Big South 3A teams went to die.

With an emphatic dunk over a Cougar defender in his way, Hunter Huss’ Tyrese McNeal let all know that Saturday would be a different story.

The Huskies’ senior standout scored a game-high 32 points to propel his team to the regional semifinal round with an 87-78 win at Charlotte Catholic. Huss will host No. 9 Ben L. Smith on Tuesday, this after the Golden Eagles shellacked top-ranked Mount Tabor 59-25 on Saturday.

“It feels really nice (to leave here with a win),” said Hunter Huss boys basketball coach Walt Wallace. “To beat a team like Catholic by nine, it’s about like a blowout because they are so tough, sound and resilient. We’re just so happy to leave here with a victory.

(Interesting note from GreensboroSports.com:Pretty sure Smith Coach Derrick Partee played against Gastonia Huss and their big center Kris Lang, in the NCHSAA Regional Semifinals on a Thursday night in March, back in 1996..Game was played in the college gym at Lenoir-Rhyne College in Hickory, N.C. and Coach Partee’s high school team, the Dudley Panthers won that game, and went to win the State 4-A Championship that year, with an Overtime win over Richmond County in the Final game, in Chapel Hill, at the Dean Dome…So Coach Partee does have some experience and history versus Gastonia Huss.)

Boys 4-A West:
#3 Northwest Guilford(24-4) at #2 Charlotte Olympic(21-6) 7pm
from The Observer…..
**********Olympic is headed to the Western 4A Regional semifinals, thanks to a second-half shooting clinic that carried the Trojans to a 71-65 victory Saturday afternoon over visiting Vance.

The second-seeded Trojans (21-6) missed only six of their 23 shots after halftime, erasing an early deficit against a Vance team that was on-target much of the time too.

“They’re young — they don’t even know what this is,” Olympic coach Baronton Terry said of his team, which had won 10 in a row before losing to Ardrey Kell last weekend in the SoMeck 7 4A tournament finals. “They’re excited.”**********

#4 Northwest Guilford girls(25-3) at #1 Mallard Creek(26-2) 7pm

    Baronton Terry, the Charlotte Olympic coach is very tough and you might call him ruthless…

    He brought a West Charlotte team, to the Greensboro Coliseum for a game vs. the Dudley Panthers a few years back, and his guys from West Charlotte, at the that time, put Dudley away pretty easily…

    West Charlotte had Baronton Terry as their coach and like we said, he is very tough, and the West Charlotte Lions also had Kennedy Meeks on that team, along with JT Terrell, who moved to Charlotte from Burlington Cummings, so he could play for that West Charlotte team…Dudley had PJ Hairston and Reggie Dillard at the time, but still no match for West Charlotte…

    JT Terrell later played in college for Wake Forest and then left Wake and ended up at Southern Cal…

    The current Baronton Terry-coached Charlotte Olympic team crushed Page in Round One, 57-16..Charlotte Olympic led at halftime in that game, 32-8….

    Lots of parallels in these games, but we are putting are money on all of our Guilford County teams on Tuesday night…

    Andy,the last time Dudley and West Charlotte played was in the West Regionals Semi-finals at the Greensboro Coliseum on March 3rd, 2010. West Charlotte only beat them 69-68 on a last second shot at the buzzer. West Charlotte however lost the Regional Championship Game to Lake Norman 83-72. West Charlotte finish the season at 23-10, Dudley at 22-7. That was PJ Junior year, Terrell was on that team, but Meeks didn’t come on Varsity until the following season 2010-11,2011-12,2012-13. That is the last time they played. I was there that night and Maxprep has there season W-L from that Era still up. However, West Charlotte did play Dudley at Dudley back in 1999 when they had Jason Parker. That game WC blew them out by 20 something. I was at that game and Dudley had a rare 500 season.
