PRINCETON -- An unconventional coaching move led to success as Ayden-Grifton rallied past Princeton 48-41 in Carolina 1-A Conference basketball action Tuesday night.

Charger head coach Jeff Dufour decided to slow the game down in the second half despite being behind by five points in the third quarter. The strategy led to better floor spacing and several open shots as the visitors rallied.

Cierra Dixon led Ayden-Grifton with 14 points. Destiny Dixon added 11 in the win.

Savanna Massengill paced Princeton with 13 points. Jaclyn Farrior and Charley Cox each added eight points for the Bulldogs.

Princeton (12-9 overall, 5-4 CC) is the guest of Rosewood on Friday.
