Boys’ Basketball Sweet 16

comments

Lake Norman is the new Sweet 16 No. 1 boys’ basketball team

In 2010, Lake Norman’s boys’ basketball team won the N.C. 4A championship. The Wildcats also won the Sweet 16 championship that year, too.

It has taken three seasons, but coach Brandon Jolly’s team has returned to the top of the poll. Former No. 1 Olympic was upset Tuesday by Ardrey Kell, ending the Trojans’ 37-game win streak and their one-week reign atop the poll.

Lake Norman is the third No. 1 within the past three weeks, following Providence Day and Olympic.

• One team joined the poll this week: 4A Myers Park. The Mustangs are off to a hot 7-2 start with losses to No. 6 North Mecklenburg and No. 7 Ardrey Kell.

Note: Records/results are through Wednesday
