from the Piedmont Triad 3-A Tournament semifinals at Western Guilford High School:
Dudley boys 59, Mount Tabor 54
End of 1st Q:Dudley 23, MT 14…Halftime:Dudley 32, MT 26…End of 3rd Q:Dudley 47, MT 36…Final:Dudley 59, MT 54…..
Dudley scoring:Cam Thomas 17 points, Taron Trotman 11, Isaiah Staton-Ray 10, Ayden Gamble 9, Tyler Young 6, Darien Wynn 4, Jermeiah Dickerson 2…
Mount Tabor scoring:Quest Aldridge 20 points, Bullard 17, Smith 10, Woodberry 5, Aaron Muse 2…
Cameron Thomas red-hot early for the Dudley Panther boys, as he hit three big three’s in the first half of play…Thomas was shooting with precision and he was tearing the house down…Taron Trotman and a key first half three and then he went to the charity stripe and nailed 6 huge free throws to pace the Panthers in that department…

Ayden Gamble gave Dudley quality minutes out front at guard and the big man, Tyler Young got his share of big rebounds in the interior/paint….No points in the first half for Isaiah Staton-Ray, but after having a cold day early, Staton-Ray found his offensive array in the second half, as he hit for 10 important Panther points in the last 16 minutes of the contest…

Dudley made good decisions tonight and as a team, the Panthers protected the ball late, and they used good passing motion to eat up key seconds off of the game clock, and by the time the Mount Tabor Spartans were forced to foul, the game was passing them by, and the Dudley Panthers were on their way to the Championship Game on Friday night at WGHS, joining the Dudley Panthers girls team in the conference Finals, for 2019….
Quest Aldridge with very steady hand for the Mount Tabor Spartans this evening in the semifinal game at WG…Aldridge with 20 big MT Spartan points, while Bullard buried 17 for MT, but Bullard fouled out and leave the game early and MT did miss him down the stretch…Smits was strong for MT, and not sure if this Smits is related to Rick Smits, the former NBA star of the same last name…

Mount Tabor girls 65, Southwest Guilford 36
End of 1st Q:Mount Tabor 14, SWG 6, Halftime:MT 31, SWG 13…End of 3rd Q:MT 51, SWG 20…Final:MT 65, SWG 36…
MT scoring:White 22 points, Wright 14, Pereira 10, Brooks 6, Deneui 6,Abhulimen 4, Weeks 6…
SWG scoring:Foust 12 points, Gandolfo 10, Nelson 8, Nyock 5, Slade 1….
SWG led early in the game 6-2 and then for a period of 6 1/2 minutes in the first quarter and on into the 2nd period, SWG could not score a point…Nada and Mount Tabor rolled….MT was a ball-hawking defensive team and they got out and ran on offense and the MT Spartans could score on you in transition and the Spartans made those transition baskets count…..Again, SWG had that early short-lived lead and then the Cowgirls wilted under the MT Spartans’ pressure….
