Tuesday’s featured basketball games
Ardrey Kell boys at Providence, 7:30 p.m.: Providence (3-16, 1-8 SoMeck 8 4A) is having a tough season, but there’s nothing the Panthers would like to do more right now than upset their archrivals and ruin the Knights’ title hopes. Ardrey Kell (15-4, 8-1) trailed Berry by one game heading into Monday’s big matchup with Olympic (17-2, 7-2). The Ardrey Kell-Providence rivalry is one of the best in Mecklenburg County.
United Faith boys at Gaston Day, 7:30 p.m.: United Faith is tied with Victory Christian atop the Southern Piedmont Athletic Association with two games to play. Gaston Day is one game back. If the Spartans can stop United Faith, they’ll have a shot at a league title Friday – if they beat Hickory Christian and United Faith beats Victory Christian on homecoming.
Charlotte Country Day boys at Charlotte Latin, 7:30 p.m.: Both teams are 2-2 in league play, good for second place behind Providence Day (20-3, 5-0). This heated rivalry will all but eliminate the loser for the championship hunt.
