The Duke’s Hoops Preview: Warren County vs Skyline

The high school boys basketball regular season concludes tonight with Skyline hosting Warren County on 1450 WFTR, theriver953.com, and the Tune In Radio App at 7:20 pm.

It will be Senior Night at Skyline High School and two of those seniors have stepped up their game of late.

Colby Wood played one of his best games of the season against Meridian to lead all scorers with 23 points, helping the Hawks knock off the top team in the region.

Caden Thorne has shot the three-ball more efficiently lately which has helped keep defenses honest, allowing more space inside for junior forward Dwayne Tucker.

While Skyline’s offense starts with their senior guards, Warren County’s offense has been led by a freshman down the stretch.

Bryce Bergmann has been filling up the scoring column, reaching over 20 points in the Wildcat’s last two games.

Warren County has already improved their record from last season, as well as raising their scoring average and lowering their points allowed, and with the emergence of Bergmann, should be very excited about the future of the program under head coach TJ Atlee.

Skyline started off the season rockier than previous years but have seem to find their stride as the season progressed to maintain aspirations for another playoff run.

The Hawks will look to put away their cross-town rivals early to provide some rest for their key players before the playoffs begin next week, but Warren County kept the game competitive early in the last matchup before fading.

Skyline’s depth and experience on Senior Night in front of a packed gym will give them the edge to continue their win streak against Warren County, 79-54.
