Top high school basketball games in the Charlotte area this week:

Butler (15-5, 8-2 Southwestern 4A) at Independence (16-4, 10-0), Tuesday, 7:30 p.m.: With four games to play, Independence has a two-game lead over Myers Park and Butler in the league standings. A victory for the Patriots at home would bring a 25th straight regular-season conference win — and put Independence on the brink of a second straight league title.

Indian Trail Sun Valley (14-6, 9-2 Southern Carolinas) at Charlotte Catholic (13-7, 9-1), Tuesday, 8 p.m.: Catholic has won seven straight games — and has won three of the past four via buzzer-beaters — to take a slight lead over Sun Valley in the league standings. A win here would give the Cougars a big leg up toward the league title.

West Charlotte (14-5, 8-2 I-MECK) at Vance (16-3, 7-3), Tuesday, 7:30 p.m.: With four conference games left, North Meck (16-3, 9-1) has a one-game lead over West Charlotte and a two-game edge over Vance. Neither team can afford a loss.

Hickory Ridge girls (17-2, 9-1 Southwestern 4A) at Butler (18-2, 9-1), Friday, 6 p.m.: Heading into Tuesday’s games, these two teams are tied for the lead in the conference. Friday’s game could decide the champion.
