Area Sports Briefs: Davie sweeps Wonders

From staff reports

Davie County’s boys basketball team stayed undefeated by topping A.L. Brown at home, 76-62, on Wednesday. Davie (4-0) shot 13-for-25 on 3s.

“Kannapolis was really athletic, more athletic than we are, and they presented  a tough matchup,” Davie coach Mike Absher said. “Fortunately, we shot the ball extremely well. We never could pull away from them, but we led just about all the way.”

Davie led by only five points going to the fourth quarter, but the War Eagles kept making 3-pointers and finally achieved separation.

Junior guard Michael Walton scored 20 points, including 10 in the fourth quarter, to lead Davie.

Jacob Hendrix scored 19 points and made five 3-pointers. Owen McCormack had 12 points, and Brooks Johnson scored 11. Cooper Wall had a big dunk and piled up assists.

Jordan Medley, the A.L. Brown quarterback who keyed a football victory over Davie, scored 17 points for the Wonders (2-2). Jalen Klutz had 12.
