CLAYTON -- Malik Richards tallied 19 points and Eastern Wayne opened Eastern Carolina 3-A Conference play with a 68-53 victory over Cleveland on Tuesday evening.

Richards pulled down five rebounds and dished out two assists for the Warriors, who improved to 3-3 overall this season. Quavis Holloman provided 21 points, four rebounds and five assists.

First-year head coach Glen Darden said Dayshawn Pridgen played a "terrific game on defense" and that the Warriors pushed the ball up the floor well.

Eastern Wayne plays Ayden-Grifton on Thursday.
