Eastern Guilford girls 45, Page 44
Page boys 60, Eastern Guilford 55
Page boys down by 22 points, 39-17 at halftime, and Page goes out and out-scores EG 43-16 in the second half…It was like two different games, in the boys game tonight at Page High, and it was like one of those epic comebacks by the Page Pirates in the second half…We are already calling this one, the “Comeback at the Mac”…More details on the boys and girls games from Page to follow…
Page JV boys 62, Eastern Guilford 56

Girls game breakdown on Eastern Guilford-Page….End of 1st Q:Page 12, EG 10…Halftime:Page 28, EG 23…End of 3rd Q:Page 41, EG 35…Final:EG 45, Page 44…
Page scoring:Reagan Maynard 24 points…I said in the pregame talk on GreensboroSports Radio, that Page would win this game if Reagan Maynard scored 25 points, Well…Kirah Lineberry 6 points, Brooke Becker 6 points…Brooke off to a great start in this game, with all 6 points in the first half…Needed Brooke to get going in the second half…Leila Hamoud 4 points, Amiya Martin 2 pts., Sharmaine Agamata 2 pts.
Eastern Guilford scoring:Kayla Swain 17 points, Swain with a deadly three-point outside shot…Swain with four 3’s for EG and she had this shot over at Grimsley on Wednesday and she brought it over to Page on Friday…Swain can bring rain…De’Ja Buskey 10 points…
Buskey is a force for Eastern on the inside and when she gets her game polished up, she will probably be scoring 20 points a game…Aliyah Cowan 7 pts., Cowan is a tough low-to-the-floor little guard and she drew two charges that would make Bob Huggins proud…Cowan and Swain together in the backcourt, are like two low-lying heat seeking missiles ready to explode on you…
Hailey Haith 3 pts. and not sure if Hailey is a relative of Frank Haith, who is from that area of Guilford/Alamance County…Zkyah Majied with 2 pts…Majied is the future of basketball at Eastern Guilford…This is kid is like 6’3 and just a freshman…I did not give her any game tips Friday night, because we wanted a close game, but we had good words for her on our broadcast on
Notes on the Page-Eastern Guilford boys game….End of 1st Q:Eastern Guilford 28, Page 8…That’s right EG ran out to a 28-8 lead in this game, behind the shooting and scoring of KD Dawkins, Kamell Smith and Dylan Spencer….Halftime:EG 39, Page 17…In the first half Dawkins and Smith combined for 23 points…End of 3rd Q:EG 45, Page 38…Final:Page 60, EG 55…OJ Johnson also played well for Eastern on the inside….
For Page in that Fourth Quarter, Tyren Farrow and Zion Conner hit huge free throws for the Pirates…Jaden Ellis had a great game, but he fouled out with about 1:45 to play and Page had to forge on, on their own, without their proven leader in Ellis..Jason Sellars had a very large second half for Page in the post….
In the past month, Tyren Farrow has become a force for Page at the guard spot and Coach Evan Fancourt’s belief in Farrow paid off Friday night to the tune of three key free throws down the stretch..Page has also been getting some solid bonus minutes from Josh Scovens and Mack Pearsall…
Those bonus minutes from the bench play big a role in a team’s success and Page has elevated Josh Scovens into the starting at times, this season…
Page scoring: Jaden Ellis 25 points…Zion Conner 16 points…Jason Sellars 8 pts., Tyren Farrow 5 pts., Mack Pearsall 3 pts., Josh Scovins 3 pts.
Eastern Guilford scoring:…KD Dawkins 20 points, Kamell Smith 12 pts., OJ Johnson 7 pts, Dylan Spencer 6 pts., Jayron Rankin 3 pts., Michael Loring 3 pts., Barry Tate 2 pts., Jared Womack 2 pts.
**********One of the best comebacks you will ever see in a high school basketball game, and the Page fans will for sure be talking about this game for a long time to come…Page has just won an instant “Comeback of the Year” award for their work in their win over Eastern Guilford….Next up for Page is Northwest Guilford, at home next Friday night…************
