Polk fell to 5-17 overall, and 3-9 in conference action, while the Bearcats raised their season marks to 8-14 and 4-8, respectively. The two teams might meet again.

“We had a cold-shooting night, and didn’t play with a lot of energy,” reported Polk Head Coach Josh McEntire.

The tournament’s opening round will be hosted by the higher seed school. Semi-finals and finals will be at Avery County High School. Avery’s men are undefeated in the WHC.
