(BONNE TERRE, Mo.) – With the boys high school hoops season now in full swing, two MAAA programs will face off on J-98 Tuesday night as the North County Raiders host the Arcadia Valley Tigers. Both teams have gotten off to slow starts while trying to replace key starters from last year. The Tigers have started with a 1-3 record after dropping a home game to the Clearwater Tigers Friday. Head coach Ricky Turnbough says he hopes his players can relax in order to remedy some early shooting struggles.
On the other side, North County has had to replace its entire starting lineup from last season. They started their season in the Fountain City Classic, going 1-2 and finishing sixth in the tournament. Head coach Jimmy Palmer said his players have worked hard to take up the open rotation spots.
Arcadia Valley and North County will tip off at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday night with the Flieg’s Equipment Pregame Show beginning at 7:15 p.m. on J-98.
