|My (soon to be revised) preseason top 10 HS boys teams list|
Lakeside (4-0) at North Augusta (1-0)
AugBball Game of the Day Double-Header
- Not only does this game include the area’s hottest team in Lakeside, and player in Kalen Williams. It also features my preseason #3 area team, NA.
And the girls game includes the Lady Yellow Jackets, who went all last season without losing while grabbing a state title. (My prediction is they’ll do it again.)
Richmond (4-1) at Glenn Hills (2-0)
If Lakeside is the hottest team, Glenn Hills is not far behind after beating Greenbrier (4-1) at Paine and Midland Valley on the road Tuesday. And Richmond will surely be aiming to redeem themselves after their lopsided defeat to Lakeside last weekend.
Butler (1-1) at Baldwin (2-2)
The Bulldogs have people wondering what to make of their 59-39 loss to Cross Creek. And Baldwin has many believing coach Buck Harris’s Braves are the favorites to repeat as region champs in our area’s class AAAA region.
Midland Valley (0-1) at Burke County (0-0)
The Mustangs and 6’4” guard Anthoney Ray, who scored 20 in MV’s loss to Glenn Hills Tuesday, will visit Waynesboro for the home opener for the Bears, a team I regret not including on my preseason top 10 area teams list.
Lexington (4-1) at Aiken (1-0)
The Hornets, my preseason pick for the area’s best team, play their first home game after blitzing Silver Bluff 60-36 Wednesday.
After this weekend I will revise my area top 10 teams list for the last time until the new year. Already in November I’ve watched all 10 teams I picked for the preseason edition of the list. (I’ve seen close to 25 teams play already!)
