The Jackson County Panthers are looking to end their regular season on a winning note this week after dropping games to Elbert and Oconee County last week.
The Panthers will travel to Franklin County Friday night to face the Lions. Franklin came away with a victory in the last meeting of the two teams, 43-30, back on Jan. 26. Tip-off is scheduled for 8:30 p.m.
Jackson County will play host to the 4-5 crossover games that will open up region tournament play on Monday. The Panthers are expected to face their first playoff opponent that night.
