A full house is expected Friday night when Landrum’s basketball teams make the short trip to Polk County to face the Wolverines.
And that’s exactly what Polk head boys basketball coach Josh McEntire hopes to see when the Wolveriens take the floor to face the Cardinals in the latest installment of the border rivalry.
“It’s like a playoff atmosphere early in the season,” McEntire said. “It’s going to be a loud environment.”
A full slate of games fill the evening, starting with the junior varsity girls at 4 p.m. Varsity action is slated to begin around 6:30 p.m. with the girls game. Both varsity games will be broadcast via Teamline.
It promises to an exciting night of basketball as the Polk boys (2-1) host a Landrum squad that downed Woodruff 66-57 in its season opener on Tuesday. Senior Aaron Bryant scored 16 points for Landrum, with five rebounds and five assists, and senior Trevor Walker added 15 points in that win.
The Landrum girls also opened with a victory, topping Woodruff 54-36. Polk County (2-1) will enter its third game of the week off a 71-28 rout of Chase.
