Friday’s boys prep basketball

From staff reports
The prep boys hoops roundup …
SPENCER ó Kelly Everhart says the thing he likes best about his undefeated North Rowan boys basketball team is that the Cavs like playing with each other.
North proved it again Friday, putting all 10 players in the scoring column in a 92-57 rout of South Davidson.
North (4-0, 2-0 YVC) used the inside muscle of Daniel Chambers (18 points) and Javon Hargrave (17).
“We were right much taller than them inside,” Everhart said.
South used a Princeton-style offense but once North’s defense forced the Wildcats into a running game, it was over. The Cavs scored 57 points after halftime.
Everhart was also happy with another double-figure scorer in 6-foot-6 freshman Malik Ford, who excited the crowd with a dunk. He had 10.
“Tonight, he really began to pick it up,” Everhart said. “He played with heart and intensity. He’s going to be something special.”

CHINA GROVE ó How easy was Carson’s 70-31 win against West Davidson Friday night?
Inside star Darius Moose hit three 3-pointers.
“That was a little unusual,” coach Brian Perry said.
What wasn’t unusual was Moose leading the Cougars with 21 points. He was helped out by Derrick Sewell, who scored 14, 11 in the second half, mainly off of steals.
Nick Houston added 10, and helped Carson blow open the game in the third quarter when the Cougars outscored the Green Dragons 26-8.
