Lake Norman to play in state title game

The Lake Norman boys basketball team has had its best season in school history.

Saturday night, they could make it even better as the Wildcats (25-3) take on undefeated Sanford High at 7:30 in Reynolds Coliseum in Raleigh.

Lake Norman beat West Charlotte 82-73 in overtime last Saturday to move into the finals for the first time ever. The Wildcats were led by regional MVP Reggie Price, who scored 25 points, including 13 of his team's 16 points in the extra period.

Senior Paul Larsen added 20 point and 13 rebounds to power the Wildcats over the Lions.

Lake Norman, who is doing all of this in their first season in class 4A, went 25-2 last season before losing to Concord in the sectional finals.
