CHINA GROVE — Deep and fast, Salisbury’s boys basketball team rolled to  71-48 non-conference win at Carson at Tuesday.

The Hornets (2-1) have a plethora of talented guards and got 19 points each from senior Cameron Stout and sophomore Jayden” Juke” Harris.

Stout is averaging 21 points per game, while Harris is averaging 21.3 in the early going.

“Those two played well and then they had a lot of other guys chipping in,” Carson coach Brian Perry said. “We hung around for a while, but it was a really tough matchup for us.”

Carson was short-handed, with two players out with the flu and one out due to COVID protocols.

The Hornets established leads of more than 20 points in the first half over the Cougars (0-2) and took a 58-32 lead to the fourth quarter.
