(Bonne Terre) A trip to the Class 5 Final Four awaits the winner of the North County and Lutheran South boys tonight on KREI.
After winning their second-straight district title and their fifth in the last 10 seasons, the Lancers come in off a 64-50 win in the sectional round over St. Francis Borgia.
Head coach Brian Lind says there is a lot to like about this North County team.
For the Raiders, they continue to check off plenty of ‘firsts’ in program history during this playoff run.
They won their first state playoff game in history with a thrilling 76-70 victory over Sikeston in the sectional match, and they now have the chance to reach their first Final Four.
North County head coach Jimmy Palmer says he sees a lot of similarities to his team with this Lancers group.
Palmer also said that getting a chance to play on their home court in a game of this magnitude means this will be one that Raiders’ fans are not going to want to miss.
Coverage of the boys basketball Class 5 Quarterfinals gets underway at 5:45 tonight on AM 800, KREI.
