Prep Basketball: North Rowan boys 60, Ledford 58

Staff report
WALLBURG ó The overall record reads 2-5 but the only record that matters to North Rowan coach Kelly Everhart right now is 1-0.
The Cavaliers won a tough road game at Ledford on Friday night 60-58 in their Central Carolina Conference opener.
“We’re playing harder and playing with more confidence,” Everhart said.
In a close contest throughout, North entered the fourth period down one, but had its best offensive effort in the last eight minutes, scoring 20. Javon Hargrave, shackled by foul trouble for much of the game, scored six of his 16 points during that span.
“When he got his hands on the ball, he was strong and forceful,” Everhart noted. “Javon and Lamont Bell were in foul trouble and had to play sparingly. But neither fouled out.”
Everhart turned to Julian Hicks in their absence and he came through.
“Julian only scored three points but he gave us some quality minutes out there,” Everhart said.
C.J. Fortson also hit double figures with 11 points, while D.J. Hipps chipped in with 10.
The Cavs also got a lift from Tristan Gill, who didn’t start, but came off the bench to score six in the fourth quarter.
Ledford (1-7, 0-2) was led by Steven Fuquay with 20 and Taylor Sparrow with 19.
