Whiteville 56, South Brunswick 15

The Wolfpack completed their undefeated Waccamaw Conference season with a rout.

"We have played well this season, had to play through some adversity with injuries and our starting point guard being ejected," said Whiteville coach Serena Smith.

Dee Jordan led the Wolfpack with a double-double. Jordan scored 12 points and pulled down 12 rebounds. LaDavias MacMillian added 13 points.

Whiteville (17-6,12-0) will have home-court advantage in the conference tournament.

"We are looking to do well in the tourney and hoping to reach the regionals this season," said Smith.

 

James Kenan 58, Wallace-Rose Hill 30

The Tigers came away with a decisive victory to close out the regular season and finished the season in second place behind Lakewood.

"We played really good defensively. The game was closer than I wanted after the first quarter, so I changed up the defense, and we gave up only five points in the second," said James Kenan coach Wendy Lanier.

The Tigers were led by Christy Debeam with 13 points and Jasmine Huffins with 11.

James Kenan (17-3,12-2) plays at home on Tuesday against Pender in the first round of the conference tournament.

"We are excited at the possibility of playing Lakewood again. The first time we played them they beat us by five, and the second time we played we were cheated out of a win when a girl hit a basket long after the clock had expired that gave them a one-point win," Lanier said.
