It's "1 versus 2" Friday night at the Temple of Doom. 

Top-ranked Irmo boys are enjoying their second straight week atop the S.C. Basketball Coaches Association Class 4A rankings. The Yellow Jackets (14-2, 2-0) now look to solidify their position atop Region 4-4A. 

Looking to reclaim the top perch is second-ranked A.C. Flora (15-2). The contest is the lone varsity game scheduled at 7 p.m. as the girls' contest was postponed due to COVID-19 protocols for the Lady Yellow Jackets. 

The Yellow Jackets and Falcons split last year's contest with the road teams earning victories. They ended up sharing the region title as COVID protocols abruptly ended the regular season. 

Following Friday's matchup, the two teams will compete in separate games at the MLK Boys and Girls Basketball Bash Monday at Brookland-Cayce High School. The girls' schedule will feature a top 10 matchup in the 6:30 p.m. nightcap between top-ranked and defending Class 3A champion W.J. Keenan and ninth-ranked Camden.
