On Friday night the Lady Knights basketball team battles Nelson County (15-5) on the road. It will be their second match up of the season as the teams grapple for region superiority.

Tip off is set for 7:30 p.m.

In round one of the rivalry, the Lady Knights outlasted the Lady Cardinals 59-55 at the Roby Dome. Nelson County junior Samantha Drake torched the Lady Knights in the paint.

Nelson looks to even the series at home where they haven't lost this season. Marion County beat the Lady Cards at home last season, winning 70-68.

"We're going to make some minor adjustments from last time. It's going to be tough going over there. We'll have to play really good to beat them. It should be fun," Head Coach Trent Milby said.

The Lady Knights face Hart County (11-6) on February 2 on the road.

"They've got a young team and they play hard. It's a tough place to play. It's not going to be easy," Milby said.

The Lady Knights share no mutual opponents with Hart County, who is 4-4 in Fifth Region action.

Tip off is set for 8 p.m.
