DAWSON -- Shhhh ...

Don't tell the kids at Monroe. But they're headed for another sell-out, standing-room only, hold-your-breath game tonight.

No, it's not a rematch with Westover, where they packed the house last Friday to see the Tornadoes, The Herald's No. 1 boys basketball team, take down No. 2 Westover in a game that featured two unbeatens coming in and one that had been anticipated and talked about for weeks.

Now, just eight days later, top-ranked Monroe heads up the road to face No. 3 Terrell County -- a team that beat Monroe twice last year.

"Oh it will be packed,'' said Terrell County boys basketball coach John Davis. "Everybody wants to see this game.''

And it's one that could be a reality check for both programs.

"I think people want to know how good Monroe is, and I think people want to know how good we are,'' Terrell County point guard and Herald Super 6er Terel Hall said. "This is the game. It's a big test. Everybody is excited. Everybody in town is talking about this game.''
