In what could be the Game of the Year and others due up on tap TONIGHT

We gave you the set for the Piedmont Triad 4-A Conference Tournament last night and we are still waiting to get the format/layout for the Metro 4-A boys and girls and the wait and see on that is will the girls have a full-length tourney that would start today and will the Metro boys still be going with the Four-Team Tournament that would begin on Thursday at Dudley with Dudley, Western Guilford, Grimsley and Smith?????

The Game of the Year could be TONIGHT at 7:30pm at Northern Guilford with the NG boys facing Eastern Guilford…..This is the semifinal matchup in the Mid-State 3-A Conference Tournament. We see EG coming in with:
Butch Huffman
Brandon Hairston
Darius Dawkins
Tre Radcliffe
and Jeremy Gaddy or Adam Gunn in the starting five and the Wildcats are coming off of a big win at Morehead in OT back on Monday night……

Northern Guilford the #1 seed and (19-2) overall, will counter with:
Johnathan Frye
Dylan Berry
Jon McBeth
Joe Daniel and
Patrick Chandler with Jalen Ross, Daniel Downing and DC Arendas coming on in reserve…

*****This might just be the Game of the Year if Eastern is ready to make this a TIGHT CONTEST….Will the ‘Cats show up for the Dance or will the Nighthawks close down this party early in the first half and cause the NG crowd to go buy their tickets for the Championship Game?????*****They start the music for this one at 7:30pm at Northern Guilford………

Also tonight it will be the Northern Guilford girls hosting Rockingham County at 6pm in the girls semifinals and the two teams split in the regular season plus the Eastern Guilford girls will be at home to face Burlington Williams in the other girls Mid-State semifinal…..

  1. yeah that game tonight should excellent. I hope EG shows up with that intensity I know they have. They lost both of the previous meetings between these two teams by 3 or less. Personally I think Northern is overrated and politic strong. I think them good ole boys from EG pull off what most would call an upset tonight!

  2. I do believe that Eastern’ s boys have qualified for the sectional playoffs and they could move up a seed or two if they finish in second or first place in the Conference Tournament….

    EG girls are in the sectionals and they should have a #1 seed based on winning the regular season in the conference….

  3. The Lady Nighthawks beat Rockingham by about 10 pts. I heard that Burlington Williams beat Eastern in a major upset. The championship game is Friday at Northern. We need a big crowd to support the girls!
    In the boy’s game the supposed “overrated” Nighthawks took it to Eastern Guilford 70-50. NG was obviously the better team. They played very well. Team basketball at its best. They will also play on Friday night so we need Nighthawk nation out there in full force!

  4. Our Nighthawks girls are the best and they just proved it. Burlington Williams beat Eastern and we will beat them. That makes us the conference champs and now we are the number #1 seed just like it was predicted before the season. Eastern had a good season but our girls showed who was best at the right time.

    GO HAWKS

  5. I meant no disrespect the Williams team. They are a very good team and have a good chance of winning the championship. It should be a great game on Friday. I only classified it is a major upset because EG was undefeated in the conference.
