The New Hanover boys basketball team raced out to an early lead and never looked back in Saturday's East Region final. The Wildcats beat Hoke County 81-48, advancing to the NCHSAA 4A State Championship.

New Hanover was led by Thomas Johnson who poured home 29 points and was named the East Region MVP. Kadeem Allen was also in double figures, he finished with 15.

This was the third year in a row New Hanover advanced to the Regional, but the first time they've won both games. Next up is a date with West Charlotte on Saturday at Reynolds Coliseum for the state title. West Charlotte and New Hanover will play at 7:30 on March 10 for the state 4-A championship.

Tickets will go on sale at New Hanover High School on Monday at the main office. Tickets are $10 apiece.

** Check out extensive highlights from New Hanover's win over Hoke County on the Coach's Corner on WWAY. The online version of the Coach's Corner will be posted by Monday afternoon more than likely.
