Matchups to watch as high school basketball tips off in Hampton Roads

by Jamaar Hawkins, i64sports

High school basketball season will not officially tip off for public schools in Hampton Roads for a few more weeks, but area fans will get an early start thanks to a slate of benefit contests featuring some top talent.

Monday night features an exciting point guard match up on the Southside, with Kecoughtan sophomore DJ Campbell matching up with Princess Anne’s Kanye Clary.

Defending Class 5 state champion Maury will host the reigning Class 6 champions Landstown on Tuesday. Norview, likely the preseason favorite in the Eastern District boys race, will host Oscar Smith tomorrow night. Both games are scheduled for 7:00 pm tip-offs.

Also, Lake Taylor will travel to Green Run on Tuesday for an always high-scoring, exciting match up. The Titans’ Zyrail Mitchell was one of the top scorers in the Hampton Roads area last year and should be even more deadly as a senior.
