It may be just the third game on the schedule, but for Alcovy's girls basketball team, revenge is on the docket.

The Lady Tigers are bringing plenty of basketball to Alcovy Friday and Saturday in the team's Thanksgiving Classic, but it's the event's finale that brings the biggest matchup.

After four games on Friday and three more the next, Alcovy will take on Miller Grove at 5:30 p.m. on Saturday. It's the second meeting between the two teams, with the last being the Lady Tigers' finale in 2011-12.

The Wolverines came away with the victory, 42-34 in the Class AAAA semifinals at the Gwinnett Arena on March 7, 2012. Miller Grove went on to win the 2011-12 state championship, beating Southwest DeKalb.

Alcovy, meanwhile, had its first final four appearance fall two wins short of its goal.

The Tigers have gotten things started this season with a 50-47 victory over Berkmar on Saturday, behind Ashley Williams' 32 points.

Williams found herself in foul struggle during the Wolverines' final four victory, and Megan Tucker took over for Alcovy with 14 points.

Both Tucker and Williams form the core of this year's Alcovy team, looking for revenge.

However, before finding it, Alcovy will meet Cross Creek to wrap up Friday's four games.

Chamblee matches up with Mundy's Mill to open things at 1 p.m., followed by Douglass County and Jackson County at 2:30 p.m. and Miller Grove and Houston County at 4 p.m.

Saturday begins with Chamblee and Jackson County matching up at 1 p.m., Mundy's Mill and Douglass County at 2:30 p.m. and Houston County taking on Cross Creek at 4 p.m.
