Basketball: North Hall-Chestatee; Gainesville-Shiloh hit the Jacobs Media airwaves tonight

By Bo Wilson Sports Editor

Two doubleheaders on the Friday night slate of huge region matchups will be broadcast live on the Jacobs Media airwaves.

On AM 550 and FM 102.9 WDUN, Class 4A eighth-ranked Chestatee (15-4, 7-1 Region 8-4A North) will welcome rival North Hall (13-5, 6-2 Region 8-4A North). The Lady War Eagles have won six straight and can sweep the season series with a win. Tip-off is set for 7 p.m.

Meanwhile, the Chestatee boys (12-7, 5-1 Region 8-4A North) head into the game with their arch-rivals needing a win to stay at the top of the region standings with Cherokee Bluff. North Hall (9-9, 3-3 Region 8-4A North) also needs a win. It should be a very interesting doubleheader in Sardis. 

On AM 1240 and 94.5 FM The Lake, Gainesville travels to Snellville to battle Shiloh in a crucial Region 8-6A matchup. Tip-off is set for 6 p.m.

The boys game is the most intriguing contest, however. Shiloh (7-10, 3-2 Region 8-6A) has been battling injuries, so don't let the record fool you. Shiloh is good, and so is Gainesville (11-6, 4-1 Region 8-6A). The Red Elephants will have their hands full but should escape with a win to stay second in the region standings. 

On the girls side, the Lady Red Elephants (16-1, 4-1 Region 8-6A), who are playing well and are No. 2 in the region standings, should walk out of Shiloh (6-10, 2-3 Region 8-6A) with a win. Shiloh, however, will give Gainesville its best shot.
