Basketball: Tournaments, rivalries highlight Tuesday action

By AccessWDUN Staff

Some fun holiday tournaments and a non-region battle between former region rivals highlight Tuesday's action on the hardwood.

Both Lumpkin County teams will hold the Kelly King Holiday Classic while boys White County teams will play for a spot in the finals of the Hilton Head Island Seahawk Holiday Classic.

One of the best local matchups of the night will have the Banks County girls, ranked fifth in Class 2A, playing host to Class A Division 1 fifth-ranked Rabun County in Homer. The two teams were region rivals for years before this season.

Commerce will entertain Lincoln County in another rivalry showdown and Habersham Central will travel to Lakeview Academy among other Northeast Georgia area teams.

Key region play will not resume until after the New Year.
