You always wait for the North Rowan boys to make a big run in every Yadkin Valley Conference game the Cavaliers play.
In a 66-33 win at Chatham Central (4-13, 3-9) on Tuesday night, it came in the third quarter.
After leading the Bears 32-19 at the half, Andrew Mitchell’s Cavaliers outscored Chatham Central 23-0. T.J. Bates had eight points in the period, Jalen Sanders scored six and Oshon West five.
The win kept North undefeated in the YVC at 13-0. The Cavs improved to 18-3 overall.
Michael Bowman led four double-figure scorers with 13 points. Bates added 11, while West and Sanders each had 10. Eleven different Cavaliers scored.
North will carry a nine-game winning streak into Friday’s home game against South Stanly.
• In the biggest YVC showdown of the night, South Davidson defeated Gray Stone 75-70 in a battle of the bottom two teams. Both Wildcat victories have come against Gray Stone.
South (2-15, 2-10) was led by Andrew Collins with 20 points. Trent Shore scored 16, and Davin Ball added 15.
Gray Stone (0-19, 0-13) remained winless on the season.
• A.L. Brown had no trouble with Mount Pleasant, running off to a 71-54 SPC victory.
The Wonders (14-5, 9-1) were up 36-19 at halftime, and coach Shelwyn Klutz let plenty of reserves play in the second half against the last-place Tigers (4-16, 0-11).
Derrick Copeland led A.L. Brown with 16 points. Eleven Wonders scored. Tevin Stark (14) and Tydus Parks (12) joined Copeland in double figures.
• Now, that’s the way to finish a half.
Davie County’s boys ended the second quarter on a 23-0 run and defeated R.J. Reynolds 70-56 at home in a CPC contest. The surge gave the War Eagles a 43-25 lead at halftime and they held off the Demons in the second half.
Davie (15-4, 4-3) got balanced scoring. Cody Martin and Taylor Hatfield each had 16 points. Caleb Martin scored 15, and Austin Hatfield chipped in with 13.

North Rowan coach Brian Lytton has a play drawn up for a long pass and shot if the Cavs are down at the end of the game. He was in that situation Tuesday in what turned out to be a 48-45 YVC loss at Chatham Central.
The Bears hit a jumper in the waning seconds and Lytton yelled for his special play.
“The ref thought I was calling a timeout and gave me one I didn’t call,” Lytton said.
North tried the long pass, but it failed with three seconds remaining. Chatham Central then hit a late free throw to seal the win and halt North’s three-game winning streak.
The Cavs (10-8, 10-3) were led by Aliyah Farmer with 13 points. Demeria Robinson added 11, Taylor Sells eight and Amber Carter seven.
• South Davidson (15-2, 12-0) had no trouble in a 72-25 win against Gray Stone (5-15, 2-11). Madison Sigmon led the Wildcats with 20 points, while Madi Beeson scored 16.
