    SW Guilford vs Cox Mill

    SW does it. They win 88-58. I can't give a synopsis as I'm not at the game. Picked the worst day of the year to have car trouble.😠

    Jordan High (Durham)

    They named a new coach today. It's none other than Mr. "Ball Don't Lie" himself. As a Carolina fan, I'm loving this. Wonder how many techs he'll be hit with this season........

    Did you ever make it to Hinkle Fieldhouse?

    North Stanly vs Bishop McGuinness. Who you got?

    Yep. Those were definitely head-scratchers.

    I hate that the North-Bishop game is the exact same time as West Charlotte-RJ Reynolds. That's gonna be a tough decision. I've been stunned by RJR's run.

    Wow. I envy you, btango. Bailey was the man back then. I can't even begin to imagine 40 grand at a high school game. I shudder to think how big his following would have been had the internet existed during those times........

    Watch out Cox Mill!

    Absolutely....... I'm expecting one unbelievable game. I don't know what to think about that 12:00 start. That'll be like watching Metallica then following it up with three local bands. Yes, those are the same Langley brothers from their 4A state title team. They played at Wesleyan last season. I believe they returned to SW because Keith Gatlin left Wesleyan (could be wrong on this). This game will be real interesting if both teams decide to turn it into a track meet. I know Cox Mill is comfortable playing like this. However, I don't know if I would advise doing this against Southwest. Those guys can strike quicker than lightning. It's not uncommon for the Cowboys to have multiple 10-0 or 14-0 runs during a game. The most impressive thing about Southwest (to me) is that even their guys that are deep on the bench can come in and give you a few decent minutes. One of the things I'm most curious about is how will the Cowboys try to defend Wendell Moore (and Carrawel). They have three/four guys with good length/athleticism that they can try on either of those guys. Each of those Southwest players bring something a little different to the table. I'm also interested in seeing how Cox Mill's backcourt handles the defensive pressure of the Langley's. I think Cline and Morgan are up to the challenge. They're both good, tough veteran guards. However, this will probably be their stiffest test by far. Langley's are no joke when it comes to defense. Keyshaun Langley, in particular, amazes me. I have never seen someone that can seamlessly blend in to a game, sometimes going virtually unnoticed, and put up gaudy stat-lines. He truly is the definition of "Silent Assassin". Another thing that's interesting is that both Wendell Moore and the Langley's know each other's games inside and out. Those guys have played with each other on CP3 for more than a few summers now. I believe that if SW wants to win, they'll have to do these things..........defend the perimeter (CM's got tons of shooters), keep Wendell Moore off the boards, and keep Carrawell from getting in a good groove. Both teams must get excellent production from their benches.

    North Stanly vs Bishop McGuinness. Who you got?

    What a great, great game last night! Came down to the last few seconds. Carson Lowder got an outstanding look......just couldn't get it to fall. There were a few things that had a huge influence on Bishop's victory. First thing was the first-half play of Cam Caroway. Caroway was white-hot from the field during this period. He hit at least four threes and had a couple of other baskets. Bishop as a whole shot the three-ball well last night. Secondly, the second half play of Andrew Budzinski. Andrew B had two awesome breakaway dunks. He also hit a few baskets inside and played some tough defense on the interior. That guy is one powerful leaper. Last, but certainly not least, was the play of one Mac Mcalhaney. This guy had one amazing game last night. He hit the big free throws down the stretch. More importantly, he played some outstanding defense on Childress. I was shocked with how well he played. With the North defenders shadowed over Ledbetter for most of the game, Mac stepped up big time. Childress was typical Childress though. He hit some tough, tough threes. I thought North got some pretty good minutes out of freshman Koby Poole last night. Also thought Carson Lowder played a decent game as well. I was very intrigued by North's big man, Nalik Veasley. He stands about 6-7 and has a strong, strong frame. Got a good touch at the line. I was a little puzzled by his game though. There were a few times when I wanted him to violently attack the rim. However, he preferred to be a passer in quite a few of those situations. His motor seemed to run hot/cold as well. He's got good potential regardless. If he really works on his game, he could be a sleeper down the road. I wonder if Pfeiffer's looking at him.

    North Stanly vs Bishop McGuinness. Who you got?

    I don't know. This game could come down to the very last basket. Biggest question for me is.....can N Stanly match Bishop's size on the interior and on the wings? On the other side of the coin.....how will Bishop defend Childress? Childress will get his. That guy seems to thrive in adverse conditions. I'll take Bishop by the skin of their teeth.

    Southern Lee at Williams (last Saturday)

    Heartbreaker for Southern Lee. They put up one heck of a fight that second half. Just had some huge turnovers down the stretch. Keep an eye on Jamori McDougald the next few years. He has a beautiful shooting stroke. He can get hot in a hurry.

    Southern Lee at Williams (last Saturday)

    Alright....let me jog my memory and get this one out of the way...... First half was all Williams. They raced out to a 20-12 first quarter lead and led 36-25 at the break. They came out in an aggressive zone which threw SL off a little. SL was able to get some good looks but they missed about half of them. Meanwhile, Williams was darn near flawless on offense. Everybody was getting involved. Nasir Johnson was gliding by Cavaliers. Rashaud Alston was getting buckets both inside and out. Big man Jamauree Haith even knocked down a couple of threes. The Bulldogs were flowin'. Only drawback was that Kennedy Miles got in a little foul trouble. As the second half begins, both teams switch personalities. SL comes out much more aggressive. They're getting easier looks and the shots are fallin' a little more. Williams goes from playing intelligent to not-so-intelligent. They're forcing a lot of passes and taking questionable shots on offense. The Cavs also spring a full court trap on them which throws them off kilter a bit. Everyone's getting in the act for SL. Jamori McDougald and Savion Clay hit some triples. Khalil Ridges hits a couple of baseline jumpers. Octavious Flack hits a baseline jumper of his own. Towards the end of the third, the Cavs have roared back to take the lead 44-43. The only thing that keeps Williams from falling apart is the play of Johnson and Miles. Whenever the Bulldogs needed a big bucket in the fourth quarter, these two would step up. In addition, Johnson nabbed a huge steal and Miles grabbed a big, big rebound. Johnson's also playing outstanding defense on McDougald. Fast forward.......with around thirty seconds left, Williams is up by three. They've had the chance to go up by more but Johnson has uncharacteristically missed four straight free throws. SL inbounds, comes down, and hits a player on the left wing. He's immediately squared up by a defender and tries to make a move. However, he loses the ball and the defender gets a hand on it. The SL then gets his hand on it and knocks it in the direction of Savion Clay. The lefty's just left of the top of the key. In one motion, he picks the ball up, shoots it, and it's nothing but net. Clay's awesome three ties the game at 58 and has the Southern Lee fans going wild. There's about 12 seconds left at this point. Williams inbounds the ball and gets it in the hands of Johnson. An SL defender meets him in the backcourt and then fouls him! A huge brainfart! It sends Johnson back to the line. He sinks the first but misses the second. SL rebounds and flies down the court. A Cav on the left wing spots a Cav post player on the inside and hits him with a fast, two-handed pass. The post catches the ball, looks to make a move, then.......dribbles it off his foot out of bounds. With .8 seconds left, Williams uses their final timeout to draw up an inbounds play. The play works to perfection. Rashaud Alston is hit way down the court off the baseball pass. He flies towards the basket and hits a layup at the buzzer. Williams wins 61-58 and Alston is mobbed.

    Fourth round games

    I'm interested in pretty much all of them. The ones I have the most interest in are....... North Stanly and Bishop McGuiness. Two teams led by two good, good guards who just knocked off two 1A heavyweights. Should be an electric atmosphere tonight in the Bishop gym. Catholic at SW Guilford. Talk about a contrast in styles. Catholic must control the tempo if they want to win. That's way easier said than done. Ledford at Kinston. Lyrik Thorne outscored Bertie by herself last Saturday. Can Kinston do anything with her? NCSSM at Farmville Central. Someone's perfect season is coming to an end. Asheboro at Cuthbertson. I'm rooting for the Cardiac Comets to make it to Hickory. Freedom at Cox Mill. Does Freedom have what it takes to slay the giant? Ragsdale at Butler. The Lady Tigers have had one impressive run over the last week. Took out NW Guilford in the tournament finals. Then took out Mallard Creek at home then knocked off #1 seed Vance at their place. If the Tigers can do it again, it'll set up a rematch with either NW or West Forsyth. NW Guilford at West Forsyth. The bad news for NW......Cayla King is out. The good news.....Liz Kitley has returned. This should be a great, great game. Myers Park at RJ Reynolds. How about those Demons?! Now they have to handle a red hot Myers Park team led by Luke Maye's little bro.

    Heading up to Bishop tonight to watch Childress and crew. Should be a fun point guard matchup between him and Jake Ledbetter. Can't wait!

    Fourth round games

    I know that sometimes they'll move a fourth-round game if they think the home team's gym won't be able to hold the potential crowd. This happened to Eastern Alamance a couple of years ago. Their fourth-round game was moved to Williams.

    Just saw a report on the North Davidson/Forest Hills game. Fulks finished with 33. Problem is......Forest Hills finished with 101. Jai Rorie and Nas Tyson combined for 53. Great careers come to an end for both Fulks and Gavin Rains tonight. Thanks for the memories, fellas. Hope both of y'all get selected for the East-West game. Jalen Cone and Walkertown went down as well. Cone still has one more year though.
