Charleston and Sikeston to face off at the Show Me Center

CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) -

Around the Heartland, it's simply known as "The Rivalry."

It's number one ranked Sikeston in class 4 against second ranked Charleston in class 3 at the Show Me Center on Thursday night.

The first time these teams met this season was early December in the SEMO Conference tournament final. Sikeston won that game 71-61.

The top ranked bulldogs are 18-1 on the year and Charleston 19-2.

Here's how the coaches see round two.

"We look forward to the challenge, so it's gonna be a tough game " said Charleston Head Coach Danny Farmer. "At this point in the season, we need a good tough game, because we've been winning by large margins. So we need a good game."

"Our players know it's gonna be a difficult game," said Sikeston Head Coach Greg Holifield. "Charleston has a great team and program, and we always look forward to playing those guys. Hopefully, we'll come out and play well, but we know it's always a very competitive, tough game."

Sikeston and Charleston will tip off at 7:30 Thursday night at the Show Me Center.

Special Guest Neal Boyd, Winner of America's Got Talent, will perform the national anthem.
