The Panthers of Maplewood take the stage for the 5:30 clash against the Tigers of Fayetteville High School. The Panthers will gel behind the talents of rising junior guard Bo Hodges (Maplewood) and some emerging teammates while Fayetteville is led by Belmont signee and Class A Mr. Basketball favorite Nick Hopkins (Fayetteville).
Up and coming Class AAA powerhouse Cane Ridge takes the hardwood at 7:00 battling out of state power Duluth, Georgia.
