HALFTIME UPDATE: Greensboro Dudley 30, Wilson Hunt 16. Dudley is big and physical.
Pre-game prediction: Kinston 85, Southern Lee 67. The SL coach swears he is going to run with Kinston, so the Vikings might even hit triple digits tonight. I haven’t seen SL this season, but from what I’ve heard, they don’t have the horses to run with KHS.
See you at the game.
