Lake George @ Argyle Friday Preview

It's our first high school basketball game of the 2013-14 Winter Sports season when the Lake George Warriors travel to Argyle to face the Scots on Friday night.

You've got to think this game has "Adirondack League Championship Preview" written all over it.  Both teams enter the Friday night with similar 11-1 records, with the lone loss coming at the hands of the Hoosick Falls Panthers for both teams.

You had to expect the Lake George Warriors to be in this position, with last year's top scorer, Joel Wincowski, back for his Junior year.  The 6' 2" guard had his 8th 30+ point performance with 30 against Corinth on Wednesday, bouncing back from a season-low 19 against Hoosick Falls.  He has accounted for 349 of the 827 points that the Warriors have put forth this year.   Wincowski has already put together over 1000 points in the last two seasons combined, and has his eyes on the career scoring record for the Warriors.

But you may not have expected to see Argyle once again at the top of the Adirondack League East.  There was chatter entering this season that it was going to be a down season for the Argyle Scots, having lost Section 2's leading scorer, Joey Lufkin, to graduation.  But Coach Jack Sherwin has restocked, with brother Kobe Lufkin warming up.  He has scored 20+ points in his last three games.  Del Pryce and Brock Liddle have also stepped up their roles, helping give Argyle the second best offense in the section, only behind high-powered Scotia.

Coverage begins at approximately 6:45p.m. on 1230 FOX Sports Radio.  If you are unable to be near your radio for the game, you can keep up with the game by following 1230 FOX Sports Radio on Twitter, @WMML1230.
