Area briefs: North rips Eagles

From staff reports
It was a long ride for the North Rowan boys basketball team but the Cavaliers didn’t mind a bit, roaring to a 78-29 Yadkin Valley win against East Montgomery in Biscoe.
North (9-3, 5-0) was up 44-18 at halftime and then blew the game open in the third quarter, outscoring the Eagles 18-3.
Even without Jordan Kimber and Amani Bates, who didn’t play, the Cavaliers didn’t miss a beat from the previous night’s rout of Salisbury.
“I was pleased we came back and played so well after an emotional win against Salisbury,” North coach Andrew Mitchell said. “The guys were anxious to play.”
Javon Hargrave led the way with 24 points, while Malik Ford and Terese Barber each added 10.
Mitchell liked the way his team passed.
“Everybody shared the ball,” he said. “We had a goal of 25 assists and we had 24. We missed a dunk on a lob that would’ve been our 25th.”
North now makes another long trip Friday when it goes to Chatham Central.
“Everybody’s pretty happy,” Mitchell said. “The biggest thing is they believe in each other. Right now, the senior leadership is really good.”
