MEBANE — After never trailing for the first three quarters, Lamont Robinson read the look from coach Jay McPherson during a timeout.

With the game tied in the opening minute of the fourth quarter, Eastern Alamance’s star knew what his coach needed.

“He has these looks, and I think I can read these looks and he gave me the look like, ‘Get us something to score,’ ” Robinson said.

Nine straight points later, seven of which came from Robinson, and the Eagles were on their way to a 79-65 non-conference victory against visiting Cummings High School on Saturday night in front of an overflow crowd at Eastern Alamance’s gym.

Robinson was the catalyst again, exploding for 41 points and scoring at will against whoever the Cavaliers threw at him. That mark was one point off the senior’s career high.

“That doesn’t matter to me. As long as we win, that’s all that matters to me,” Robinson said coolly.
