Leckonby, Oats lead Salisbury boys past West Davidson
SALISBURY — Seniors Will Leckonby and Tre Oats combined for more than half their team’s points, leading Salisbury past West Davidson, 63-50, Tuesday night.
Leckonby, a guard, led the Hornets with 18 points, hitting 6-of-10 shots from behind the 3-point arc. Oats, a post player, scored 16 points.
But Salisbury coach Bryan Withers was most happy with the controlled effort of his team on offense.
“We just tried to play basketball,” said Withers. “We’ve been working on our half-court offense, learning to play basketball, rather racing up and down the court, playing ‘street ball.’ We did a good job with it tonight. And we got better rebounding and played fairly good defense.”
Withers was also pleased with the play of point guard Trell Baker, who had six assists and only one turnover, to go along with four points.
Oshaun Robinson scored nine points for Salisbury, following Leckonby and Oats.
Salisbury (13-6, 6-3 CCC) led at halftime, 32-28. The Hornets then increased the lead with a 19-11 advantage in the third period. Salisbury entered the fourth quarter with a 51-39 lead.
West Davidson falls to 8-14 and 0-9. The Dragons were led by Scott Hughes’ 15 points.
Salisbury returns to action on Friday with a match-up with county rival North Rowan. The CCC girls-boys doubleheader will be played at Catawba’s Goodman Gym.
