MACON, Ga.-- The Howard Lady Huskies have a shot at the top spot in the region Friday night. Howard is 13-3 overall and 7-2 in Region 2-AAAA.
The Lady Huskies only losses came at the hands of Rutland, Cross Creek and Baldwin. All were by four points or less.
Howard needs a win over Veterans and a Mary Persons loss at Rutland to take over at number one. The Lady Huskies emerged victorious in their last meeting with the War Hawks, 51-48.
"They have a guard who's really quick," explained Head Coach Latavia Coleman. "She can shoot three's. She can get to the basket. They're very scrappy. They play well together. It's going to be a tough one for us in Veterans. I just hope my girls are up for the challenge and not think about the last win."
Game time at Rutland Friday night is at seven.
