The Callaway Cavaliers are alone at the top.
The Cavaliers (12-2 overall) improved to 7-0 in Region 4-AAA with Saturday’s victory over Rockmart.
That win, combined with a Chapel Hill victory over Douglass on Saturday, means the Cavaliers are the only unbeaten team in the region.
Douglass had been perfect in the region, but that ended with the 58-56 loss to Chapel Hill.
Today, that same Chapel Hill team will try to knock another team off its unbeaten perch in the region when it hosts Callaway.
Chapel Hill is only 7-11 overall, but the Panthers have won four of five, and they’re 5-3 in the region.
This will be the second meeting of the season between the two teams.
On Jan. 4, Callaway beat Chapel Hill 64-56.
“We’ve got another big one (tonight) against Chapel Hill, in Chapel Hill,” Callaway coach Terry Hayes said. “We just have to keep on keeping on.”
The Cavaliers have been playing terrific basketball all season.
They dropped their season opener to Greenville, but they’ve only lost one game since, and they’ve won eight straight games.
“Our goal is to be undefeated in the region, to be the number one seed in the region tournament,” Hayes said.
Also today, the Lady Cavaliers (9-5 overall) will put their 5-2 region record on the line against a powerful Chapel Hill team.
Chapel Hill (14-4 overall) is 8-0 in the region, and that included a 60-39 victory over Callaway.
Since that loss, Callaway has won five of six games, including two in a row in the region.
Callaway’s teams return to the court on Wednesday to host Troup before returning to region competition on Friday at Douglass.
On Saturday, Callaway will host Lanett (Ala.).
