Friday’s match-ups on the basketball court feature several in-county games.

The Bandys Lady Trojans (13-0, 4-0) try to keep their undefeated record when they host Maiden (5-6, 0-3).

Bandys (1-12, 0-4) seeks its first boys basketball win in the CVAC against the Blue Devils (4-6, 1-2).

Newton-Conover (10-3, 2-1) tries to keep pace in the CVAC girls basketball standings, facing Bunker Hill (0-13, 0-4).

The Bears (2-12, 2-2) and Red Devils (7-6, 2-1) also square off in boys hoops with the winner earning its third CVAC victory and moving up the ranks.

In an important game that does not feature two in-county rivals, Hickory (13-1, 2-0) and South Caldwell (7-5, 3-0) square off in girls basketball for bragging rights atop the Northwestern conference.

Also in the Northwestern 3A/4A, Fred T. Foard seeks its first boys win in 27 NWC games.

The Tigers are off to an impressive 10-4 start to the season, but are 0-3 thus far in conference play.

The Lady Tigers are also 0-3 in the NWC, but try to shake that off with a win against the Lady Panthers.
