ERWIN -- Triton poured in 33 fourth-quarter points and handed Eastern Wayne a 70-64 loss in Eastern Carolina 3-A Conference play Monday evening.

Quavis Holloman delivered 15 points and six assists for the Warriors, who dipped to 2-2 against ECC opposition this season. Zeke Martin supplied 11 points, seven rebounds and four assists.

Micah Smith just missed a double-double with nine points and nine rebounds. Malik Richards registered 10 points and four rebounds.

"It was a tough game down there," first-year EW head coach Glen Darden said. "They are a good ballclub and run the floor well. We did some good things, too, and I think we surprised them a little bit."

Maurice and Krishawn McBryde led five Triton players in double figures with 16 points apiece. The Hawks (12-2 overall) remained perfect in four ECC outings this season.

Eastern Wayne (5-9) plays host to North Lenoir on Jan. 16.
