The day has finally arrived! The Highland Springs girls and Henrico boys basketball teams play for state titles in the new 5A classification this afternoon at the Siegel Center.
Highland Springs will play Princess Anne, who defeated the Springers nine days ago in the 5A South Region Championship game when the Springers lost point guard Bri Justice early in the affair to an injury. Justice returned just three days later to lead Highland Springs to a state semifinal victory and the rematch.
Princess Anne took Cosby to overtime at Highland Springs in the StatVA.com Classic on January 18th. Both teams, at full strength, should be a classic encounter. The Cosby game was Princess Anne's only loss on the season.
Tip is set for 12 noon. You can watch the game, for a fee, by CLICKING HERE.
The Henrico boys will follow around 2pm facing Potomac for the second time this season. In their first encounter, Henrico took Potomac to overtime before falling 70-64 in the finals of the Henrico Holiday Hoops Classic on December 28th in a game heard live on HCS Media Network.
