More on the way….One of the best games in Guilford County, if not the best game in the county this season….

The nearly 40-foot shot by Dudley’s Spencer Hairtson, to send the game into Overtime…The shot by Gage Lattimore, falling to the floor, to send the game into Double Overtime…The dunk coming down the left baseline by Smith’s Markquan Gilbert, taking on two defenders to throw it down……The dunk by Smith’s Xavier Partee, flying to the basket, from the right side of the court…Dunks, long shots, rebounds, this game had them all…It made me think back to the game a few years back when Hendon Hooker(Dudley HS) was slamming the ball for Dudley, and then Ramon Pratt(Smith HS) came right back and slammed one home on the other side of the court for
Smith…If you get a chance, be sure to listen back to this game on GreensboroSports Radio this week….

This was and is one of those games, if you were there, you will never forget it, and if you were not there, you will be kicking yourself for the next week, for not coming out…This was one of those Games of the Week, Game of the Month, and Game of the Year, all rolled into one…
