The local boys basketball circuit has seen its fair share of solid teams this season and Charlottesville and Western Albemarle are two teams that are getting it done on the court. The two teams will meet for the second time this season on Friday night on the Knights' home court with both teams looking to solidify themselves as the best in the Jefferson District.

Charlottesville and Western enter this match up separated by just one game in the standings. The Black Knights are 7-0 in district play, while the Warriors are 6-1. That one loss came at the hands of Charlottesville, which topped Western in Crozet back on December 11, 65-64. That game has served as the single difference in the standings. Last season, the Warriors took both games from the Knights, but suffered three district losses. Charlottesville's two losses to Western were its only two falters in the district, giving the Knights the regular season championship.

2010 is shaping up to be just as close. Western has won ten straight games entering Friday's contest, while Charlottesville is unbeaten in district play. A Black Knight win would put Mitch Minor's team in the driver's seat, up two games in the district standings. Western coming out on top would see a tie for first place with six remaining district games for both teams.

Tip off is set for 7:30 pm on Friday night at Charlottesville High School.
