THE WOODLANDS, Texas- It's almost game time in The Woodlands. College Park and their All-American guard Quentin Grimes will travel across town to take on The Woodlands on Tuesday night at 7:00 pm.

Grimes has been in the spotlight since gaining national hype a couple years ago, but the Cavalier/Highlander rivalry is nothing new. The Woodlands leads the all-time series with 17 wins to College Park's seven, but the Cavaliers are familiar with winning on the Highlanders home court.

With both teams coming into Tuesday's game 3-0 in district, the matchup will have important playoff implications until the two teams meet again February 9. Grimes has been impressive all year, reaching 30-plus points almost every night. Shannon Scott, Deon Blakemore, and Max Bowman have all consistently contributed buckets for the Cavaliers as they seem to be one of the teams to beat in District 12-6A.

While a lot of hype has been put on the Cavs, the Woodlands still enters this week undefeated in district and coming off two impressive wins against Conroe and Oak Ridge. Woodlands Online Football Player of the Year Kesean Carter has shown he is a multi-sport athlete leading the Highlanders alongside Incarnate Word commit Romello Wilbert.

Be sure to get to the game early for a good seat as this one should be one of the best games in the area all year, or join us for our live broadcast brought to you by Hal Watson Air Conditioning with replays presented by Memorial Hermann The Woodlands Medical Center.
