Parkview teams only ones to play at home tonight.

Friday Hoops: Boys Teams Look to Regroup

Lilburn's three boys basketball teams that play in the Georgia High School Association look to turn some things around tonight.

Providence Christian plays at Whitefield Acamdemy, Berkmar is at Archer, and Parkview hosts Shiloh. All three boys teams are coming off of losses.

Here's a look at the matchups:

Providence Christian at Whitefield Academy: Providence (15-6) has lost three of their last three games, and has been knocked out of the state rankings. The Stars are in third place in Region 5-A, Division B with a 2-3 league record. It doesn't get any easier with Whitefield (19-3), a Region 9-A team that is currently ranked No. 3 in the state. Whitefield is a former No. 1. Providence's girls (11-11, 2-3) have lost two in a row.

Berkmar at Archer: Both of Berkmar's teams should be favored in this matchup. The boys (14-7, 8-5) face a last-place Archer team (9-14, 2-12). Berkmar, which lost to Shiloh last Saturday, is in a three-way tie for third place in Region 8-AAAAA. The Berkmar girls (14-8, 8-5) are fourth in the league. Archer (7-16 overall) has won only three league games.

Shiloh at Parkview: Parkview's teams have been headed in opposite directions as of late. The boys (10-11, 5-8) have lost two in a row, while the girls (17-4, 11-2) have won five in a row since losing to top-ranked Brookwood last month. The Lady Panthers are in second place in 8-AAAAA and face a Shiloh team that has won only two games this seasons. The Panthers have a challenge in Shiloh (11-9, 7-6), which beat Berkmar last week.
