TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — Friday night two Big Bend boys basketball teams hit the road for regional final match-ups. With a win, Lincoln and St. John Paul II will lock in their spot in the state final four.

The Panthers of St. JP2 are at Impact Christian in Class 2A. They're coming off a big win over FAMU DRS, and they're riding high and playing good.

Junior Bryce Vieux threw down for 35 in that regional semifinal win, and now, the Panthers are looking to carry that confidence into Friday night.

"This late in the playoffs it's all about execution and playing together with your team," said head coach Colin Anderson. "I think a lot of teams get lost in doing things they did in the first part of the season. That can't happen in the second part. As long as we stay together, I think you'll see us in the state championship."

The Panthers play Friday at 7. Lincoln is at Ocala Forest. Tip-off for the Trojans is at 7:00 as well.
