First NBC Prep ShowcaseNEW ORLEANS – Two of the top boys basketball teams in the New Orleans area, De La Salle and Country Day, face off Friday night in a matchup to be streamed live on SportsNOLA.com.

SportsNOLA Prep Basketball presented by First NBC Bank matches the Cavaliers (16-4) and Cajuns (12-6) in a non-district matchup from Metairie. The live stream will begin just prior to the 7:30 p.m. tipoff.

Both teams come into the game on modest winning streaks. De La Salle has bounced back from a one-point loss in the final of the Sunkist Shootout in Lafayette with a pair of wins, while Country Day has won three straight since a last-second loss to Karr in the opening round of the Allstate Sugar Bowl National Prep Classic last week.

The teams are meeting for the first time this season. A year ago Uptown, in a game also seen on SportsNOLA, the visiting Cajuns prevailed, 66-58.

Vashon Jones and Dashone Denomes will describe the action on Friday.
