The Leake Academy boys entered the week with a 9-2 record. Last week, they defeated Tri-County 72-32 and then stopped Oak Hill 66-54.
"Both teams picked up two big district wins last week," Coach Phil Shepard said. "The boys' win over Oak Hill was especially big. They played us hard and we pulled it out."
