Prep Basketball: South swept in Welcome

Staff report

North Davidson’s basketball teams swept visiting South Rowan in CPC action Tuesday night.

South’s boys lost 63-56, and South’s girls fell 65-38.

n In the boys game, the Raiders (7-13, 2-7) turned the ball over 18 times in the first half, most of them in the first quarter, and had to fight back from a deficit the entire game.

“The key part of the game was the start,” South coach John Davis said. “They pressed us — and it’s something we’d worked against — but we just made bad reads off it, got rattled.”

Still, the Raiders got within four points late in the game and had possession with 30 seconds remaining. On an inbounds play, Wesley Honeycutt (game-high 17 points) got the ball under the basket. Davis thought Honeycutt was fouled, but after a no-call North Davidson turned the ensuing loose ball into a basket at the other end.

David Wolford also scored in double figures for South, finishing with 12 points and 10 rebounds.

Chris Pagentine led the Black Knights with 12 points.

n In the girls game, the Raiders (7-13, 2-7) committed 33 turnovers. North Davidson led by eight points after one quarter and took a 38-15 lead into the break.

“We stopped boxing out and let them get extra shots,” South coach Jim Brooks said. “When we broke down defensively, they took advantage.”

Katherine Van Wieren (nine points, seven rebounds), Taylor May (eight points, eight boards) and Kim Wilson (eight points) led the way for South. May picked up her fourth foul early in the third quarter and fouled out with about five minutes left in the game.

Bethany Anderson led second-place North Davidson (12-8, 7-3) with 15 points.
