North County Hosts Farmington Friday On KREI As Both Teams Aim To Remain Undefeated In MAAA

(BONNE TERRE, Mo.) – Two boys basketball teams undefeated in the MAAA Large Schools Division will do battle Friday night as the North County Raiders host the Farmington Knights on KREI.

The Raiders have been on a roll since the Central Christmas Tournament, as the blue and gold are in the midst of a 6-game winning streak.

Speaking of the Christmas Tournament, these two teams nearly met in the second round back in December.

Because of that, North County has had an eye on Farmington for a while.

That’s according to head coach Jimmy Palmer.

North County is led by junior Karter Kekec, who averages 20 points per game and made the Dream Team last year.

On the side of Farmington, it took a three-pointer at the horn a Friday ago to remain perfect in MAAA play, as sophomore J.P. Ruble threw in the dagger at Fredericktown.

The Knights have three players averaging double figures in points, including sophomore Isaiah Robinson with just over 13 a contest.

Head coach Terry Noble knows going to Bonne Terre is always tough.

Both teams are 2-0 in the MAAA.

North County is 11-5 overall, while Farmington is 10-6.

Before tipoff, North County will induct Al Agnew, Mike Cole, Mary Hoehn, Steve Sieve, and Robert Wann into the school’s Hall of Fame.

Tune into the pregame show at 7:15 Friday night on AM 800 KREI.
