High school basketball: West boys run past Mustangs

Staff report

MOUNT ULLA — West Rowan’s boys basketball team beat East Rowan 92-72 in a fast-paced North Piedmont Conference game.

The Falcons (2-0) broke 90 for the first time since they beat Central Cabarrus 94-84 early in the 2015-16 season. Caleb Mauldin scored 43 in that one.

No one scored 43 on Tuesday, but the Falcons put six men in double figures.

Macari Allison, who had four 20-point efforts last season, led the Falcons with 20.

Jalen Moss, reigning Rowan County Player of the Year had 18.

Newcomers Juke Harris (13), Braden Graham (13) and AJ Mauldin (12) reached double figures, and football star Zeek Biggers added 10.

Allison is known mostly as a shooter, but he attacked frequently and shot a lot of free throws. Moss got eight of his 18 in the fourth quarter.

East (1-2) hung with the Falcons in the first quarter, but West’s 24-point second quarter provided some separation and a 39-25 halftime lead.

West scored 53 points in the second half.

Gavin Sprinkle scored 19 to lead the Mustangs. He had 12 in the third quarter.

Vincent Jones scored 16, but was held to two in the second half.
