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.”**********
