LINCOLNTON – The Wolves 1993 state runner-up basketball team was honored Tuesday night (Feb. 11) at the Lincolnton High School gymnasium as the Wolves hosted their last home game for the regular season.

The following is a re-cap from the desk of Coach Lavell Hall:

The 1993 Wolves began the season ranked #4 in the Charlotte Observer's sweet 16 poll.  The season would not disappoint as they opened with a 103 to 68 win, on county rival West Lincoln's home court.  The team completed their non-conference portion of the schedule with a 9 and 3 record.  They opened the conference season with a 60 to 55 win over West Caldwell. 

The team would capture the 1993 Big Six conference regular season championship with a 9 and 1 conference record.  The Wolves would also sweep the conference titles, with a Big Six tournament championship win over the Tigers of Fred T. Foard.  The Wolves would once again defeat Fred T. Foard the following week in the first round of the district sectionals.  Later that week they would be sectional #2 champions, as they defeated the Yellow Jackets of Lexington High School, by a score of 70 to 49.  Moving on to the regional semi-finals site at Hickory High school the Wolves would defeat Kings Mountain, and face the Shelby Golden Lions for the Western Regional Championship.  A win over Shelby would place the Wolves in their first ever boys basketball state championship game.  The Wolves delivered the win by a score of 54-51.  They moved on to the Dean E. Smith Center in Chapel Hill to play in the 3A State Championship game.  Unfortunately, the Wolves would lose in the 3A title game to a very strong Eden Morehead team that would capture their second straight state championship. 

The 1993 Lincolnton Wolves Basketball team finished the season with a 24 and 6 record.  They concluded their season with the following titles:

  • Lincoln Bank Holiday Tournament Runner-Up
  • The Big Six Conference Regular Season and Tournament Champions
  • The NCHSAA Sectional #2 Champions and District Champions
  • The NCHSAA Western Regional Champions and the 1993 Men's Basketball 3A State Runner-Up

When questioned about his season, Coach Hall stated that all the players that came before the '93 group paved the way.  They had won a conference championship and laid the ground work for ‘93 team to take it to the next level.
