Friday night Monroe Central will host neighboring rival Wapahani, who has won 8 of their last 9 games. The Golden Bears are currently on a 3-game winning streak with their most impressive win of the year coming last Saturday when MC hosted and defeated Northeastern by 18 points.
Israel Nash enters the game 6th in the state in scoring at 26.6 points per game.
Cook and Belle will be performing the National Anthem joined by Michelle’s sister Lana.
After decades of performing all over the country together and opening for artists such as Rascal Flatts, Lonestar, Charlie Daniels, Dierks Bentley, Montgomery Gentry, Trace Adkins, and Steve Miller Band, Bret and Michelle’s passion to create and entertain have only grown. Whether you’ve watched them on their Emmy award winning TV show ‘Cook and Belle’s Playhouse’, heard their songs on the radio, listened to one of their many records, or just listening for the very first time, you will feel and hear years of passion and hard work that had one thing in mind…You. Their powerful mix of country, soul, 60’s and 70’s, and gospel will take the entire family for a ride.
At halftime the Pacer Power Pack will be in the house to put on their dunk show. There will also be Pacer giveaways after halftime.
