Logan High School always looks forward to hosting the annual King Coal Classic.

If you are a basketball fan, Logan’s Willie Akers Arena is the place to be on Saturday.

The Lady Cats, last year’s Class AAA state runner-ups, are coming off last Saturday afternoon’s 59-44 win at home over state power Morgantown.

Logan’s Shayna Gore and Monica Mitchell each had double-doubles. The Lady Cats beat Chapmanville earlier in the season, 53-36, at CRHS.

Then at 7:30 p.m. in the lidlifter, the host Logan boys (3-3) are set to face off with fellow Triple-A team Point Pleasant.

The Big Blacks enter the contest 4-3. Point Pleasant most recently won 67-48 at St. Albans.

Logan plays the night before the King Coal Classic on Friday night at old Class AA rival Westside. The Renegades are 4-1, having lost last Friday night at county rival Wyoming East.

The Wildcats most recently played last Saturday night at home, winning 67-25 over Nitro.
