The Game of the Century
Got your attention, didn’t I?
Ok, so maybe not the game of the century. But certainly the basketball game of the season in Hampton Roads.
Number one in the area vs. number two in the area.
Number five in the nation vs. number four in Virginia.
A 17-1 team vs. a 13-3 team.
A team averaging 67.7 points per game vs. a team averaging 67.7 points per game.
And, of course, Flipper vs. Groot, the slick Dolphins against the sturdy Oaks.
Norfolk Collegiate’s high-flying boys basketball team travels to Cape Henry Friday for what’s not only a TCIS showdown, but a Virginia showdown. It will be the hottest ticket of the season.
