High school basketball: Salisbury boys win game for third in CCC

Staff report

LEXINGTON — Salisbury’s boys beat Central Davidson 54-45 on Friday to take the league’s third playoff spot in a seeding game.

The game was necessary because the teams tied in the standings in the regular season, split with each other and lost in the same round of the conference tournament.

The 10-team Central Carolina Conference gets three automatic berths. They’ll go to North Davidson, Lexington and Salisbury. Other CCC teams, including Central Davidson are expected to make the brackets as wild-card teams.

Some CCC teams will be in the 2A West bracket. Others are sure to be in the 2A East.

Jabril Norman, who scored 11, was the surprise scoring leader for Salisbury (16-9). Latavian White had nine, and Nate Brown and Zay Kesler added eight each.

Central Davidson (15-9) got 13 from Jacob Myers and 12 from Cory Casilac.

“We played very well defensively against a good Central team,” Salisbury coach Bryan Withers said. “We made a few lineup changes, went more defensive, and it paid off. We held a good team scoreless in the third quarter.”

It was tied 24-all at halftime, but Salisbury’s 16-0 edge in the third quarter was decisive.

“Now we can’t wait for the pairings to come out on Sunday,” Withers said.

 

Salisbury 54, C. Davidson 45

C. DAVIDSON (45) — Myers 13, Casilac 12, Schaefer 6, King 5, Smith 3, Shoaf 2, Rusnak 2, Tysinger 2.
