Besides win, both the Alcovy boys and girls varsity basketball squads will try to forget about the events that transpired against Cedar Shoals on Tuesday and focus on the task at hand tonight: Salem.

For the boys, head coach Eugene Brown and the Tigers (4-7, 2-2) will attempt to overcome a heartbreaking 51-50 loss against the Jaguars earlier this week, hoping to get back on track this evening on the road against the Seminoles in region action.

One player who needs not get on the right path - seeing that he has been on it all season long - is Alcovy's Worrel Clahar.

Clahar, a senior point guard who is the backbone of the team, scored a career-high and school record 38 points against the Jaguars. He accounted for 76 percent of the overall scoring for the Tigers.

But in order for Alcovy to advance in the region standings, others - besides Clahar - must step up, including senior forward Cody Edwards and junior sharpshooter Jordan Butts.

Meanwhile, the Lady Tigers (0-9, 0-4) are continuing to search for their first win of the season despite a tough schedule in such a competitive region.

Alcovy is coming off a disappointing 62-48 loss to the Lady Jags, a game in which Tammeisah Law dropped 17 points.

Tipoff tonight begins at 7 p.m.
