WASHINGTON -- For the second straight game, the Charles B. Aycock boys basketball team played solid team basketball, but fell short of picking up a win.

Washington's Calvin Daniels' layup with seven seconds left in the game pushed the Pam Pack (10-13, 6-10 Class 3-A Eastern Carolina Conference) to a 58-57 win over the Golden Falcons on Wednesday.

Aycock was led by a pair of senior forwards. Alonzo Ferrell dropped in a career-high 22 points and pulled down 10 rebounds, while teammate Jamorris Dickerson added 12 points and 10 rebounds.

The Golden Falcons (4-18, 4-12 ECC) will travel to face Goldsboro in the conference tournament play-in game on Friday at 7 p.m. The winner will face top-seeded Kinston next Tuesday at the Vikings' gymnasium. Aycock defeated Goldsboro in both regular season meetings.

"It's hard to beat a team three times in a year, but when you get into an elimination situation, you've really got to reach down," Aycock coach David West said. "We've played two good games in a row, we just haven't caught any breaks.

"Hopefully, tomorrow we will catch those breaks."

Aycock's girls rebounded from Tuesday's loss against Eastern Wayne to lock-up the conference's third seed heading into the tournament with a 55-41 victory.

The Lady Falcons, who got a 19-point output from senior Cassandra Worrell on Wednesday, open up conference tournament play at home on Tuesday against either West Craven or West Carteret.

Sophomore point guard Quaneisha Milner added 10 points for Aycock (16-6, 11-5 ECC), who were playing without Joyce Warrick, who suffered a minor ankle injury in Tuesday's contest. Warrick, the team's leading rebounder, should be back for the conference tournament.

Washington's girls were 24-34 from the free-throw line on the game.

"We challenged them before the game. This was our first complete game as far as intensity on defense," Aycock coach Gary Hales said. "We played man-to-man. Free throws were keeping them in the game.

"Those are fouls that I can handle, because we were playing hard."

With the Pam Pack boys down by one, Daniels took the ball and cut into the lane and lost the ball going up for the shot. The ball came right back down into his hands, and Daniels put the ball in to give Washington back the lead.

Aycock had seven seconds to answer. After taking the ball up the court, an errant Falcons' pass was tipped out of bounds by a Washington defender with one second left on the clock. The ensuing inbound pass was stolen by Washington to seal the game.
