Aycock Middle School girls 35, Guilford 13…
Halftime:Aycock boys 29, Guilford 2…Say around 13 points for Aycock’s Ayden Gamble at halftime…Aycock has a real tall one in Williams, at 6’4/6’5 and the ball got stuck behind the top of the basket and he grabbed the side/top of the basket/behind the rim, pulled himself up and knocked the ball loose and I don’t think anyone else could have done that….Good jumper and good climber…
Last game basketball game ever in the old Aycock School Gym…Next year, the school will be known as Swann Middle School, named after former Guilford County educator and N.C. A&T football announcer, Mel Swann….
Now on the way to Page for the Varsity games….
Games for today and a couple of things to keep an eye are the Mendenhall boys and the Aycock boys, both at (9-0) from what we have been hearing and they are due to meet next Monday at Mendenhall, in what would be a NC/Non-Conference Game, but that should be a BIG one we have been hearing about Kernodle and from what we hear, they have a guard or two to keep an eye on with Kernodle at Northern today….We were also hearing about a 6’5 young man from Northwest last week and we saw Diamond Monroe and her EG team at Mendenhall last Monday((Frazier re-joined EG last Thursday at St. Pius) and it is hard to think, that was already a week ago, seems like maybe it was last Thursday for EG at Mendenhall, but the time is moving on and soon it will be time for Alan Hooker’s Annual Boys and Girls Middle School All-Star Games and the middle schools will have their Conference Tournament the week of February 13th….
Girl’s Highlights for you from the Kernodle Middle School Cougars defeating the Northern Guilford Nighthawks in Overtime, 57-50….
By halftime Kernodle was down by 16 points; With 1:50 minutes left in the 4th quarter, they brought it within 1 point with a 3 point shot by Hailey Blackwell (point guard). Northern started to slip away bringing their lead to 6…..
With 7.5 seconds left on the clock Blackwell was fouled and hits 1 of her 2 free throws tying the game and going into OT….Kernodle defeated Northern 57-50.
Hailey Blackwell had 30 points and we also found out today, she is the point guard for the 8th grade Lady Gators team.
Here is what we see/have for today, and I’m leaning toward going over to Aycock today…..
