    Boy, this one hurt.

    Congrats to Westchester. Josh Burton and Sadeeq Bello were tough to stop, as was #11. Sadeeq and #11 drove well to the basket and Josh hit some outside shots. It was either he, or maybe #11, who hit a particularly big three to stretch a 44-43 lead to 47-43 with less than 2 minutes left. And #11 appeared to have some troubles with tightness in his leg muscles in the first half. Gutsy performance from him. And #24 down low blocked about 6 shots and played good defense down low.

    For Caldwell, both Michael and Matthew had 4 fouls in the 3rd quarter and didn’t come back till 4 minutes left in the game. We didn’t shot particularly well – especially in the first half. Brett Manning and Daniel Branon hit a few big shots late, but it wasn’t enough. Congrats to Michael for co-league MVP.

    Again, congrats to the Wildcats and hope both represent the Triad and their schools well in the state playoffs starting Tuesday.

    to Eagle Dad: it was Justice Cuthbertson #11 who hit the three to make it 47-43 with 40 seconds left and Bruno Baca #24 played great D blocking 6 shots

    we are playing Caldwell again in the 1st round of the state tournement NCISAA 2A 6 pm at WCDS. Also High Point Christian is #1 in 3A, Ravenscroft #2, Christ School #3, GDS #4, Wesleyan #5 could set up to be great games in the quarters semis and championships

    Score….we’ll see you Tuesday @ 6:00pm.

    I think that will be the 8th meeting in the last 2 years, and you guys are up 6-1 on us. Was a good, well-played game Saturday night (and a thriller @ WCD last time when Josh Burton put in the game winner) and expect same from both teams @ WCD Tuesday.
