Alcorn Central and Kossuth are no strangers to each other. The Alcorn County programs have already suited up to play three times this season, including in the Division 1-3A tournament.
This game will carry just a bit more weight.
The two will square off Monday night with a trip to Jackson on the line. For Kossuth, the #1 seed who has beaten Central three times already this season, they are hoping for more of the same. For the Lady Bears, the #4 seed, they are hoping they continue to punch above their weight and come away with the win.
For both teams, a lot is on the line. Validation, bragging rights, the opportunity to continue on towards every teams ultimate goal: a championship.
The real winners are the local fans. Two teams in Alcorn County are among only 8 in 3A still competing. It is a real testament to each team rising to the moment, players, coaches and everyone involved with each program working towards a common goal. You have an opportunity to witness one of the biggest games in Alcorn County girls basektball in quite some time.
Word of advice: show up to Kossuth gym early for a seat tomorrow.
