    Northern Guilford heads to Orange on Tuesday. However, Orange got dealt a huge blow tonight. Their star guard, Connor Crabtree, came down on someone’s foot in the first quarter. Looks like he might be out the rest of the way.

  • BBall Fan said,

    Very dissapointed in the fight that was started by GDS.

  • good game said,

    GDS did not start the fight. The GDS player was pushed after tying up the ball and the WES player got upset. The reality is that GDS lost a far more valuable player in the 3rd Q than WES. That opened the door for WES but fortunately GDS was well coached and they responded like champs. None of this had anything to do with Freddy or Keith. This was simply a situation that players got caught up in their emotions.

  • Andy Durham said,

    Please keep this part of the equation in mind…Most of the games will be forgotten in few days, but if you say something bad about a player or coach, that will be remembered for a long, long, time…

    Keep the Plan of Attack in Mind, and if you said it on here, would you say it to that person’s face, and if so, use that route and keep the attacks off of here…

    The Plan of Attack:

    Personal attacks on players, coaches, parents or school officials will not be tolerated.

  • Andy Durham said,

    Losing Conner Crabtree would be a big loss for Orange…He is usually good for 20-25 points per game…

    From WRALSportsFan.com:
    UNC-Asheville recruit Connor Crabtree was injured at the end of the first quarter. The apparent ankle injury kept Crabtree from returning to the game, and the senior was seen on the bench with crutches.

  • Basketball Fan said,

    @BBall Fan… Who are you?? Who are you to sit here and say, “GDS started the fight”?? Were you even at the game? Or have you any knowledge of what happened? JP did not engage in this first and was attacked by WES. Watch the video or go to the games.. Furthermore I am glad to see they took your other remarks off this page. You clearly are an uneducated biased WES supporter, who chose this forum to disrespect GDS, it’s coaches & players, especially Fred Johnson. You(BBall Fan), if you claim to be one, you need to wake up and smell what you are shoveling…

    Does anyone know why Coach Gatlin and an apparent administrator were arguing on the court? Or why he was choosing to take his team off the court without shaking hands after the game. That was more surprising than the scuffle itself.
