North Meck, East Lincoln climb into basketball Sweet 16

Unranked at the beginning of the season, East Lincoln (7-0) has zoomed to No. 6 in the first regular season Sweet 16 poll and North Mecklenburg (8-0) has moved to No. 8.

Five of the top eight boys teams are from the I-Meck 4A conference: No. 1 Hopewell, No. 2 Lake Norman, No. 3 Vance, No. 4 West Charlotte and North Meck.

Tonight, North Meck is at Lake Norman and West Charlotte is at Vance in a pair of very tough conference openers.

In the girls poll, No. 1 Butler plays No. 2 East Meck next Thursday at East in the girls game of the year so far. Butler beat East Meck four times last season.

The Waddell Boys should be in the Sweet 16. Waddell is undefeated and beat #15 Providence last night. Tonight they take on Garinger, looking to remain undefeated.

Waddell Boys are truly something to see. I watched a savoy point guard and a monster power-forward do what they wanted on both ends of the floor. If they are not ranked in the sweet 16 it won't be long.
