It’s rivalry week for the George Rogers Clark boys basketball team.
The Cardinals, who dropped a 56-49 setback to Madison¿Central earlier this week, will take on another set of Indians, Friday night in Mount Sterling as part of a doubleheader with the girls’ basketball team.
The Lady Cardinals and Lady Indians will tip off at 6 p.m., followed by the Cardinals and Indians at 7:30 p.m.,
Clark (2-1) has won 10 in a row over the Indians and hasn’t lost to its border rivals since Montgomery County won two of three games between the two schools during the 2007-08 season, winning two regular-season games, before the Cardinals avoided a season sweep by defeating the Indians in the 40th District finals. Overall, Clark has won 16 of the last 18 games between the two foes.
Clark coach Scott Humphrey expects a close contest against the Indians, who have reeled off three straight games to open the season.
