The last couple weeks of regular season high school basketball season starts tonight, Monday, Jan. 29. I have posted the latest Region D Class 4 Standings for the boys and girls. Some of the top teams in this part of Southwest Virginia in Class 1A – are George Wythe-Wytheville, Eastside, Honaker, Covington, Lebanon, Holston and Chilhowie to name a few. In Class 2A Gate City, Radford, Grayson Co., Graham, Dan River, Glenvar, Richlands and Fort Chiswell are some of the top squads heading into the final two weeks. Class 3A looks like Northside, Hidden Valley, Heritage and Staunton River as some of the top teams. Check out the 4A standings to see who are the top 8 heading into the last two weeks of regular season play.
Some big games are left for all the teams and there sure to be some upsets this week and part of next week. So stay tuned and enjoy the ride that is high school basketball.
Reminder: Don’t forget the Adam Ward Classic coming up this Saturday, February 3rd at Salem High School. There will be seven(7) games with the first game starting at 10 am. This schedule is as follows:

If you haven’t seen Georgetown signee you need to go see him and the State’s #1 ranked 2A team- Gate City. The 5:00 pm contest will pit Lord Botetourt vs Floyd Co. Girls as they square off. The 6:45 pm contest will see the #2 State ranked 2A – Radford Bobcats take on William Fleming. Radford as of this writing is 17-0.
