Welcome to the first PrepsNow podcast, where The News & Observer community sports editors J. Mike Blake and D. Clay Best will discuss important topics in high school sports.
This week, nothing is more important that the upcoming basketball championships on Saturday.
Three teams from the Triangle will being going for titles – the Garner boys in 4A, the Southeast Raleigh girls in 4A and the Chapel Hill girls in 3A.
Lucky us, Clay got to cover all three last week in Fayetteville and will give us some insight on each.
Questions answered in this week’s podcast:
1. What sets this year’s Garner team apart from other talented squads in previous years?
2. What must Southeast Raleigh do to knock off nationally-ranked Myers Park, the team it lost to last season in the final?
3. What is it about Chapel Hill coach Sherry Norris that makes her teams so tough to beat?
