Full slate of high school hoops Friday

The high school basketball season continues tonight with games all across the area.

Thursday, there was one doubleheader of local significance, as Oak Ridge traveled to Karns and swept two games from the Beavers, with the Lady Wildcats routing Karns, 72-10, and the boys whipping the Beavers in game two, 83-52.

Tonight features a full slate of action, including right here on WYSH & WQLA, where we will begin with live updates during Trading Time Primetime and then take you to Campbell County High School for the Fox & Farley Full Court Press presentation of the Dragons and Lady Dragons at the Cougars.

Clinton’s girls come in to the game with an overall record of 13-8, 6-3 in District 3AAA while the Lady Cougars boast a 12-8, 5-2 mark that includes a 77-61 at Clinton a couple of weeks ago.
