#5)Northeast Guilford(12-2, beat Western Alamance 65-49 last night)

#6)Smith(5-8/2-1 Metro, beat Grimsley Weds. and I was at this game and Seth Hawkins paced the Golden Eagles with 27, while David DuPont scored 22 for Grimsley and Dupont was so hot in the second half that they needed to throw a bucket of water on him.  I mean this kid was on fire.  Credit Reggie Peace’s Golden Eagles of Smith for hitting their free throws down the stretch and Avery Hardy was strong for Smith around the basket)

#7)SWG(8-7, the Cowboys took 4th at the Little Four Tournament and I have no scores to report on them this week)

#8)Grimsley(6-7, the Whirlies lost to Smith 64-57 and will have to stir up the mustard on Friday night when they host the Page Pirates at historic Bob Sawyer Gym.  Dupont has been hot, Keith Manley will need to play big in the lane, Marlan Smith has to hit his free throws{has been missing the first and hitting the second and you can’t do that on one-and-ones}, and Christian Tonkins must not foul out or GHS is in trouble)
