Spenser Briggs led three players in double figures with 26 points as unbeaten Wayne Country Day thumped Terra Ceia 74-44 in non-conference play Tuesday evening.

Adam Wright provided 20 points and Oscar Ball added 11 for the Chargers, who climbed to 3-0 heading into the Thanksgiving break. They return to action Dec. 1 at Smithfield-Selma, which is coached by Keith Faison, who guided the Spring Creek program for two seasons and played for current WCDS coach Randy Tilley.

"We've got a big-time test next Wednesday."
