Tuesday's Boys high school preview features region showdown between Glenn Hills and Laney and a border bashing rematch between Lakeside and Midland Valley

Tune in to the @AugBball Facebook page for bonus coverage of this region showdown!

Laney (5-1, 1-0) at Glenn Hills (4-0, 1-0)

An early season region showdown is sure to take place Tuesday at Glenn Hills when the #1 team in class AA takes on rival and defending region champion Laney. The Spartans have been flawless against stiff competition:

64-57 over Greenbrier  - November 24
66-53 over Midland Valley - November 28
68-54 over Richmond - December 1
66-53 over Butler - December 8

Laney's only blemish came when the wildcats gave up a 21 point second quarter lead to Greenbrier (8-1), falling in overtime at Paine on November 25.

Tuesday's rematch should provide plenty of fireworks!

Lakeside (5-2) at Midland Valley (1-4)

Beating the same team twice in four nights and winning the second one on that opponent's home court will be the challenge for the Panthers, who earned a 69-65 win over the Mustangs Saturday at home. That was Lakeside's first game in a week. But the next five days holds almost no rest for coach Jeff Williams's crew because after Tuesday's game the Panthers will prepare for a two game weekend home stand against Greenbrier (8-1) Friday in both teams' region opener, and against North Augusta Saturday.

Midland Valley has played a difficult schedule that has included Glenn Hills (#1 GA class AA), Irmo (#10 SC class AAAAA), and Lakeside already.

Strom Thurmond (3-4) at North Augusta (3-1)

If Lakeside will have "almost no rest" this week, then North Augusta takes the idea a step further by hosting the Rebels Tuesday, playing at AC Flora Thursday in a return game from last Thursday's Falcons win at North Augusta, before finishing the week on the road at Burke County Friday and Lakeside Saturday.
