This week’s top high school basketball matchups in the Charlotte area:

Charlotte Country Day (15-5, 2-0 CISAA) at Charlotte Christian (18-1, 2-0), Tuesday, 7:30 p.m.: The two rivals are tied for the league lead. Country Day will try for an upset that would end the Knights’ 12-game win streak.

Independence (10-3) at Carmel Christian (23-1), Saturday, 7:30 p.m.: The Patriots are the reigning N.C. 4A state champions. Carmel Christian, nationally ranked in several polls, is the reigning N.C. 2A private school champs. This is the feature game of the Carmel Christian MLK Showcase, and it should be rather crowded.

Ardrey Kell (12-3, 4-1 SoMeck) at Olympic (9-4, 4-0), Friday, 7:30 p.m.: The Knights have won four of their past five games and will try to get a share of the league lead. Olympic looks to build an early cushion. Harding (7-9, 4-1) is tied with Ardrey Kell for second place.

Myers Park (11-4, 5-0 Southwestern 4A) at Porter Ridge (10-2, 3-2), Friday, 7:30 p.m.: The Mustangs have won nine straight and are tied with Independence (10-3, 5-0) for first place. Porter Ridge is tied with Butler for second and needs this home win to stay in touch with the leaders.

Vance (12-2, 3-2 I-MECK 4A) at North Mecklenburg (12-2, 5-0), Friday, 7:30 p.m.: A must-win game for Vance this early in the season? Yes, the Cougars are likely out of the league title race unless they win on the road. North has a one-game lead on West Charlotte (10-4, 4-1) for first place.

Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools are off until Friday because of exams.
