Both Elder and St. Xavier will attempt to extend winning streaks as they wrap up the holiday weekend with back-to-back games tonight in the LaRosa’s Hardwood Classic at Fairfield High School.  Elder (14-0) looks to keep its perfect season intact when the No. 4 Panthers meet Lakota West at 6 p.m.  No. 10 St. Xavier (11-3) will attempt to make it five consecutive wins against Fairfield in the second game at 7:30.

Elder defeated Fairfield, 51-36, in the first game on Saturday night – with guards Frankie Hofmeyer and Brad Miller each scoring 11 points.  Hofmeyer and Miller are second and third in the GCL South in scoring at 14.8 and 12.7 points per game, respectively.  St. Xavier kept its current streak alive when junior Hunter Lampley tipped in a missed shot in the final seconds to give the Bombers a 60-58 win over Lakota West Saturday night.
