Girls basketball: South Rowan wins at Salisbury

SALISBURY — Salisbury’s girls lost their sixth straight game on Tuesday, but coach Lakai Brice managed a few smiles after this one.

“I’m starting to see a little bit of chemistry,” Brice said. “That probably was our best effort of the season, and I was proud of the girls for not quitting. That was a lot better showing than we had in the Christmas tournament.”

South Rowan beat the Hornets 58-42,  but it was a 10-point game when Salisbury’s leading scorers Breya Philpot and Tyzarea Alexander fouled out back-to-back with five minutes left. Salisbury fell to 2-12, but without the foul trouble, it might’ve gotten interesting.

Avery Locklear scored 21 points for the Raiders, although she experienced uncharacteristic struggles at the free-throw line. Cassidy Chipman scored 18 despite struggling from the 3-point line. Chipman did knock down her free throws and raised her career point total to 967 in three varsity seasons.

“We just didn’t look full speed,” South Rowan coach Jarrod Smith said. “We’ve got some sick girls right now. Avery’s got the flu, and she didn’t have her legs tonight.”

Malaysia Williams hit the boards, while Beth Ann Martin did her defensive thing, and they probably had the best games for the Raiders (9-4).

“We didn’t play defense well at all and we didn’t make free throws or 3s,” Smith said. “But we still scored 58 points, and it’s been a long time since we’ve won in this gym. We’ll take it.”

SOUTH ROWAN (58): Locklear 21, Chipman 18, Bost 5, Martin 5, Hubbard 4, Williams 2, Chabala 2, McClendon 1, Waters, Figueroa.

SALISBURY (42): Philpot 9, Alexander 9, Honeycutt 6, Capito 6, Hillie 5, Caldwell 5, Wolfe 2,  Houston, Jones, Phifer.
