TALLULAH FALLS — The Lakview Academy boys set themselves up for a huge first-place showdown in Region 8-A with a 76-60 road win over Tallulah Falls Friday night.

The victory moves the Lions to 7-5 overall and a perfect 4-0 in region play. They will play host to Prince Avenue Christian (7-5, 3-0) on Saturday with the top spot at stake.

Blake McIntyre continued his breakout season recording a double-double with 20 points and 11 assists to lead Lakeview. Adam Cottrell added 17 points and Arturo Varela 14 points for the Lions, who have been without leading scorer Drew Cottrell for the past four games.
