  1. NG – be careful what you ask for ? Just because you see the GDS girls on your schedule don’t think they cannot play. Southern Durham is a fairly good 4A team with 3 very good players and 3-4 other solid role players that will make some noise in the 4A state playoffs. The Southern Durham team is a mirror image of the Dudley girls team. This was a bad lost by GDS not because of who they lost to but GDS had by far the worst shooting night of the year – missing easy shots. GDS will bounce back and be ready to play next week. NG has a good team so it should be a good match up on Monday. This is a rematch from the 2010 tournament which NG won. Good luck to both teams.

  2. GDS probably has the strongest first five of all teams in the tournament. The thing I am trying to understand is why GDS doesnt play their big girls together? They got 3 players over 6ft tall. Most teams would love to have 2, but they have 3. Play the Hairston girl in the middle with Rogers and Wilkerson on the wing. They will dominate the boards. They have 4 guards who could start for any team in the county. They are quick , can shoot and pass. If GDS leave at 2 big girls on the floor 25 min or more they are going to be difficult to handle. If they play all 3 the other teams can not match up. GDS guards are gonna do their thing regardless. With the big 3 in the paint very few teams can be successful against them.

  3. First game of the season….52-48 Southern Durham over Northern Guilford girls…

    11/22/2011 NG vs. Southern (Durham, NC) 48-52 (L)

  4. Wesleyan 53
    Thomasville Prep 50

    Kind of a boring game. Both teams played way too much zone. Both teams are athletic and should be getting up and down the floor but it didn’t happen because of the zone.
