ASHEBORO â€” Wednesdayâ€™s second round of the Mid-Piedmont Conference Tournament semifinals featured a Trinity-Southeast Guilford doubleheader â€” and, eventually, a split.
In the boys game, Matt Watkins had a dominating performance to lead the No. 2 Bulldogs to a 60-38 win over the third-seeded Falcons at Asheboro High School.
Second-seed SEG held off a fourth-quarter charge by No. 3 THS in the early game for a 54-42 victory. Both winners move on to play No. 1 Ragsdale with the girls game slated to start at 6:15 p.m. and the boys at 8 p.m.
Watkins scored 33 of the Bulldogsâ€™ 60 points â€” 21 in the second half despite picking up his fourth foul with 54 seconds left in the third quarter.
â€œHe did a good job working the ball inside and his teammates did a good job feeding him the ball,â€ THS coach Tim Kelly said. â€œOur focus was the inside game and we exploited that.â€
The Bulldogs (18-8) led by as many as 12 in the first half, but went into the locker room with just a 30-23 lead.
THS started the second half with a 9-0 run to go ahead by 16 with 31/2 minutes left in the third quarter. SEG responded with a 9-0 run of its own and trailed 41-34 heading into the final 8 minutes.
There, the Bulldogs caught fire, going on an 11-0 run and staying on top.
Josh Pittman added 12 points for THS, while a visibly ill Chris King chipped in 11.
â€œWe canâ€™t get rid of it,â€ Kelly said of the flu bug that has hit his team for three weeks. â€œWeâ€™re better â€” weâ€™re not well.â€
Josh Cobb led SEG with 10 points.
