Yellowjackets Seek Redemption: Despite boasting a winning record, Union narrowly missed a division title and are searching for a statement win to solidify their playoff run. Led by the dynamic duo of the Yellowjackets’ offense thrives on their up-tempo pace and ability to knock down shots from behind the arc.

Ultimately, the team that executes better down the stretch and capitalizes on their strengths will emerge victorious. The edge might go to Calhoun City, 60-55, but expect a nail-biting finish.
