None of the western regional brackets look quite as juicy as the 4A.
West Charlotte and Lake Norman are both in the I-MECK 4A and in past years, the N.C. High School Athletic Association has not had conference mates meet in the regional semifinals.
So that means there's a possibility of a West Charlotte-Greensboro Dudley meeting in Wednesday's quarterfinal.
Think that might draw a small crowd in Greensboro?
Greensboro Dudley junior P.J. Hairston has committed to North Carolina and West Charlotte's J.T. Terrell has signed with Wake Forest.
And if that matchup happens, Ardrey Kell-Lake Norman would be a whale of game, too.
-- In the girls bracket, the same conference rule should apply, which would keep Butler and East Meck, which are both from the Southwestern 4A, from playing in the regional semifinals. We had an All-Meck regional final with West Charlotte and Butler last season. It's certainly possible to have another this season.
