Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools canceled all after-school activities for Friday to an anticipated snowstorm. Those after school activities include a heavy schedule of basketball games.
At least one, Hough at North Meck will be moved to Monday.
Below is a preview of the biggest games moved from Friday.
Olympic at South Mecklenburg: South (8-6, 3-1) is one game behind Olympic (6-3, 4-0) for first place in the SoMeck 4A as these traditional rivals prepare to meet.
Hough at No. 5 North Mecklenburg, Mon, 7:30 p.m.: North Meck (12-2, 3-1) beat No. 6 Vance Wednesday to pull into a first-place tie with Hough (8-6, 3-1), which was upset by West Charlotte. These rivals now battle for first (Vance is tied with both teams and plays at Hopewell Friday).
