SYLACAUGA, Ala. – Not many high school rivalries generate the hostile atmosphere that transpires between the Sylacauga Aggies (4-1) and the Childersburg Tigers  – especially on the hardwood.

Last season the defending 5A state champion Aggies beat Childersburg twice on their way to the school’s first state title in hoops since 1988.

One of two meetings between the rivals last year ended with Sylacauga celebrating on the Childersburg half-court logo after the game causing police officers to quickly clear the floor and the gym to prevent any post-game incidents between players or fans.

Friday nights meeting will be the first of two meetings for the 2018-2019 basketball season. The final meeting will be on Feb. 1.

Both the Aggie Sports Network on Yea!106.5 and Tiger Sports Network on KiX 100.3 will be live from Douglass-Martin Court at Sylacauga High School Friday night to broadcast the match-up. You can watch a live video broadcast of the game on the Aggie Sports Network Facebook page.

Tip-off is scheduled for 7:30.
