The Banks County boys have one game left in the regular season and chance for redemption over sub-region opponent Dawson County.
Ending the regular season Friday night, the Leopards make the drive to Dawsonville, looking to redeem the Jan. 25 loss to the Tigers and add an all important sub-region victory before the region tourney.
Banks County, 2-7; 5-16, will face the Dawson County Tigers, 2-6;13-8, in a 8:30 p.m. tip-off. In the last meeting, Dawson County defeated Banks County 50-44.
With the regular season ending, the region tournament is where it all comes down to for the Leopards. The region tourney begins next week, Feb. 14.
Last week, the Leopards ran into a snag, dropping two sub-region games to East Hall and to Union County.
Against East Hall, the Leopards fell 68-38 in a three-point shooting fest for the Vikings. East Hall dropped in 13 buckets from the perimeter. Banks County couldn’t get the scoring rolling despite leading scorer Seth McEntire pouring in 13 points for the Leopard offense.
The following game, last Friday, against Union County was a closer score for Banks County, but still a loss as the Leopards fell by 10 points, 62-52.
