Games postponed

Sunday evening's late snowfall left some icy roads and forced the postponement of two area contests.

East Duplin's boys were scheduled to play at North Lenoir this evening. That game has not been rescheduled.

Spring Creek canceled its trip to South Lenoir and athletics director Roy Whitfield said the schools agreed to play the game in January.

Rebel girls fall on road

LAKEWOOD -- Lakewood forced a whopping 32 turnovers and limited North Duplin to single-digit scoring in each quarter en route to a 42-26, non-conference victory Friday evening.

The Leopards led 20-12 at halftime, but broke open the game with a 12-0 run in the third quarter.

North Duplin (3-3) missed the front end of seven one-and-one opportunities at the free throw line. The Rebels finished 8 of 17 overall.

Sierra Ward paced North Duplin with 19 points.

The Rebels take two weeks off for the Christmas holidays and return to action at home Jan. 5 against Class 1-A Carolina Conference rival Princeton.

NEWTON GROVE -- Josh Bishop and Mychael King sizzled the nets for 24 points apiece as Spring Creek knocked off Hobbton 85-71 in non-conference play Friday evening.

Bishop dished out 10 assists, picked the Wildcats' pockets for four steals and grabbed six rebounds. Wright handed out a game-high 11 assists to go along with two steals and six rebounds.

Chris Wright added 20 for the Gators, who climbed to 7-1 overall.

Cameron Strickland poured in a game-high 23 points and Tyler Pate turned in a career-best effort off the bench in Wayne Country Day's 66-58, non-conference victory against Rosewood.

Pate buried four 3-pointers and finished with 14 points for the Chargers, who climbed to 4-3 overall.

Travis Davis added 16 points and seven assists.
