Greetings HS Hoops Junkies from across the post holiday Piedmont. The Great One is once again here to give out his weekly Furious 5 for the week ending January 13th. Two of the five lost this week as Rocky River and Ardrey Kell took the tumble down the mountain. A couple of former F5 members now return to the fold as Hopewell and Olympic are making noise again. North Meck is still King of the Hill as we have completed the first half of the conference season with Independence and Butler not far behind and at this point you won’t find any 6 loss teams in the Sadster’s F5…. To the 5!

1. North Meck – won an ugly game at Vance and sailed over Lake Norman.

2. Independence – outlasted Rocky River in the Raven’s own nest and took out upstart Myers Park.

3. Butler – dogs cruised in two games, looking forward to next match up against the Patriots.

4. Olympic – Coach Terry has the Trojans on a roll at the right time in taking down Ardrey Kell.

5. Hopewell – Titans have a nice win streak going culminating in a win at West Charlotte, but road game at Hough looms.

Don’t Sleep On: Ardrey Kell, Rocky River, Myers Park, West Charlotte
