Northwest Guilford is preparing for the upcoming state 4-A boys basketball tournament.
The Vikings (17-8) will open play on Feb. 25 against an as-yet undetermined opponent in the first round. They were upset, 48-46, by High Point Central in the first round of the Piedmont Triad 4-A Conference tournament on Feb. 18.
Northwest led 15-8 at the end of the first quarter and took a 28-19 edge into the locker room, but a 16-5 third quarter run by the Bison made the difference in the contest.
Nick Powell led Northwest with 14 points and Cody Hylton chipped in with 11 points for the Vikings.
