HIGH POINT – Theo Pinson wasn’t fazed by the pressure.
Pinson led Wesleyan Christian Academy to a 58-47 home victory over Greensboro Day School by making 11 of 12 free throws down the stretch.
Although Greensboro day stopped Pinson from scoring from the field for the final three quarters of the game, he got involved in other ways. Making precision passes, and great defense allowed Wesleyan to pull away late, and hang on to the win.
Greensboro Day School stuck right with Wesleyan and battled back late in rd to make it a two point game, before failing to convert on four straight free the 3 throws. From that point it was back and forth, and Wesleyan converted, where Greensboro day did not.
Pinson lead all scorers with 18 points, Christian Hairston was the leading scorer for Greensboro Day finishing with 10 points.
This is only Greensboro Day’s second loss of the season, the other coming in their previous game against Christ School (Arden, N.C.).
Wesleyan and Greensboro day split the series so far this year. In the first meeting between these two teams, Greensboro Day won at home 50-40.
Greensboro Day will try to bounce back in their next game against Calvary Baptist Day on Friday in Winston Salem. Wesleyan plays Forsyth County Day on
Friday at home.
