WASHINGTON -- Eastern Wayne overcame a slow start at Washington to overcome the Pam Pack 62-45 in Class 3-A Eastern Carolina Conference play on Tuesday.

The Warriors (11-4, 9-1 ECC 3-A) trailed 27-20 at the half, but went on to outscore Washington 42-18 after intermission to pull away.

"We had a slow start, but we managed to pull some things together in the second half we responded well," Eastern Wayne coach Marvin Bowman said.

The win was fueled by increased defensive intensity on the Pam Pack's guards and a solid, 18-22 shooting performance from the free-throw line.

Eastern Wayne's Derrick Joyner tallied a team-high 16 points, including eight-for-10 from the line. While, Adrian Kendrick added 14 points and hit eight-of-nine.

The Warriors return home on Friday to take on West Carteret.

BETHEL -- Ryan Little scored seven points in the fourth period and added another four in overtime as North Pitt outlasted North Lenoir 66-62 in a key Eastern Plains Conference boys' basketball game.

The Panthers (2-1, 11-3 EPC 2-A) jumped out to an early 13 point lead over the Hawks (1-2, 12-4 EPC 2-A), only to slip back by as many as three in the last quarter.

But Little, who had 31 points, hit a trey with 2:18 left to tie the game at 55-55. North Lenoir's Kevin Lee made a basket at the other end and was fouled by Jeremy Wilder, but failed to convert the three-point play. That allowed Andre Williams to hit with 37 seconds remaining, tying the game once more at 57-57.

Justin Dunn missed the Hawks' final try, sending the game into overtime.

In the extra period, Little put North Pitt up 59-57 with 3:11 to go, then added a jumper for a 61-58 lead and the Panthers were never caught again.
