from the Charlotte Observer and Herb White, in what the Observer was a calling a ‘Showcase Game’ down in Charlotte last night…..www.charlotteobserver.com
Northside (3-0) was more than good enough, particularly during a second-quarter run in which the Knights reeled off a 12-0 uprising to turn a 23-18 deficit 3 minutes, 23 seconds before halftime into a seven-point advantage at intermission.
Consecutive baskets by Charlotte commit Keyshawn Woods (game-high 22 points) pushed Northside ahead for good and the Knights held Wesleyan’s top three scorers, North Carolina commit Theo Pinson, Houston recruit JaQuel Richmond and Donovan Gilmore (College of Charleston) to 13 points between them. Pinson finished with 21 points and Gilmore added 14.
“That was the game,” Trojans coach Keith Gatlin said. “We go up 23-18, Northside comes back and goes on that run, and we never could recover. But that’s a tribute to Northside. They played very well.”
