The Conference Tournament titles have been decided and now it’s time to move on to the sectionals.
Last night we saw the Page boys and the Northwest Guilford girls take the Metro 4-A Conference crowns. NWG over Smith in overtime for the girls title and Page defeats Grimsley in the boys championship.
Page 77, Grimsley 74….NWG 63, Smith 53 in OT….
Mitchell Oates(Page) boys MVP and Hannah McIntosh(NWG) for the girls.
Hope to have more from Paul Lambeth on this one later in the day.
Northern Guilford and Dudley took the Triad 3-A Championships at Northeast Guilford with the Nighthawks topping the Dudley Panthers 70-60 and the Dudley girls winning on a last-second shot by Brianna Patterson 58-56.
You try and to pick up all that is going on around you, but it sounded like Helen Terry(possibly Brianna Patterson) was the girl’s MVP and that Michael Neal of NG won it for the boys.
Girl’s box score from N&R:
Rockingham County — Krystal Moore 18, Liz Ferguson 16, Ashley Palm 16, Lindsey Pinckett 4, Kiyle Keck 2.
Dudley — Breanna Patterson 21, Desiree Drayton 11, Porsha Roach 9, Helen Terry 7, Tonya Jackson 7, Lakiya Rouse 2, Ebona Goins 1.
Boy’s box score:
Dudley (23-3) — PJ Hairston 22, Brennan Wyatt 16, Reggie Dillard 10, Brandon Pennix 9, Chris Whitsett 3.
Northern Guilford (24-3) — Michael Neal 22, Jonathan Frye 19, Jacob Lawson 7, JR Gant 2, Christian McCain 6, Asad Lamot 7, Dylan Berry 4, John McBeth 3.
Also last night in the Piedmont Triad 3-A Conference it was High Point Andrews over WS Reagan 73-56 and in regular season actioin, Greensboro Day School defeated High Point Wesleyan 61-49.
Northern takes the boys title over Dudley and we may be seeing a changing of the guard as we head into the State 3-A basketball playoffs. Dudley has been the top-cat around here since 1999 and the Panthers are going to have to do it the hard way if they are to return to Greenville the site of the 3-A Regionals. There is also an outside shot we might see both Northern and Dudley in Greenville, as we did with Dudley and Northeast Guilford a couple of years ago.
Northern has more depth than Dudley and the Nighthawks seem to be getting more productivity from their starting five as a whole. The bench-scoring for the Nighthawks was a big lift for them on Friday night. NG is sitting in a good position right now and they have a chance to be home all next week as do the Page Pirate boys.
The West Regional will be at the Greensboro Coliseum and we could see the Page boys, the Northwest girls, the Ragsdale boys and girls, and the High Point Andrews boys all at the Coliseum Special Events Center.
Pairings are due out later today and we try and get them up here for you and we will try and get a final for you on the Mount Tabor-North Forsyth game.
