Crittenden County's boys will host Payton Croft's Trigg County Wildcats tonight at Rocket Arena for a New Year's Eve showdown between the Fifth District's top two teams. Both come into the matchup with 2-0 league records. The winner will have a decided advantage as the second half of the regular-season Fifth District round robin begins next week.
Payton Croft, the son of former Rocket coach Jimmy Croft, is Trigg's first-year skipper. Croft played five years at Crittenden and is among the school's all-time leading scorers.
Tipoff is at 6 p.m., for the varsity matchup. There will be a JV game starting at 4.
