Staff report

LEXINGTON — Salisbury’s boys basketball team made the plays early in the fourth quarter when Tuesday’s game could have swung either way and stayed tied for first in the Central Carolina Conference.

The Hornets (4-3, 4-0) won at Central Davidson 67-59 and kept pace with Ledford.

Salisbury was able to get out in transition and had some of its best offensive production of the season during a 45-point second half. The Hornets were down 24-22 at halftime.

A lot of guys contributed to Salisbury’s fourth straight win.

Cameron Stout scored a team-high 16.

Joseph Witherspoon scored 15 points with 7-for-10 shooting.

Zeb Harry helped get the Hornets started with two early 3-pointers.

Deuce Walker had six deflections, while Jalon Walker had three steals and two intimidating blocks.

Central Davidson is 4-3 and 2-2 in the CCC.
