HIGH SCHOOL BOYS BASKETBALL: Varsity standings through Thursday, Feb. 18

Published Friday, February 19th, 2021




(through  Thursday, Feb. 18)

Note: South Fork 2A and Northwestern Foothills 2A teams can play only 14-game schedules, which allowed no non-league games, while Northwestern 3A-4A teams have two available playing dates for non-league opponents.

Playing dates are listed but fans should call the home school for specifics of scheduling from now to the end of the season (Feb. 19) as many adjustments have been made due to COVID-19 and teams being quarantined.

Note that it is now common for a team to have a game listed against one opponent as postponed and the same team then scheduled to play another league team on that date. Those are games where a team could not play its regularly scheduled game because the opponent was quarantined and the new opponent had a mutually available game date for a needed makeup game (girls, boys are both teams).

Notes: Final standings will be based on conference winning percentage, regardless of the number of games a team got to play on an original schedule of 14 games… also, Alexander Central has cancelled games on Tuesday and Friday due to COVID-19 concerns … the Friday cancellation with South Caldwell changed the result of a Feb. 12 game (AC won 45-35) from a non-league result to a conference game, changing/updating those conference records.

Tuesday’s results

Alexander Central at Hickory, cancelled

Wednesday’s results

Freedom 62, St. Stephens 54

Thursday’s results

Freedom at Hickory, cancelled

Watauga at Alexander Central, cancelled
