Huskies ousted by Olympic

Hough's run in the N.C. High School Athletic Association's 4A playoffs ended Thursday night, as the Huskies fell to nationally-ranked Olympic 75-55 in the regional semifinals.

Despite early foul trouble, sophomore Luke Maye led the Huskies with another double-double - 14 points and 10 rebounds. Drexler Clark had 11, while Theo Mack added 9.

The third-year Huskies finish their year 23-6.

North Meck's girls play tonight

Lake Norman-area teams haven't had much success this week, with Bandys' and Lake Norman Charters' girls as well as Hough's boys losing in their respective regional semifinals.

But North Mecklenburg's girls' basketball team will look to change that tonight. The Lady Vikings will face Porter Ridge at 7 p.m. at the Greensboro Coliseum Special Events Center for a chance to play in the 4A semifinals Saturday night.
