Andrew Jackson grabbed the early lead against North Central and held onto the advantage throughout the game en route to a 71-63 victory over the visiting Knights in a non-region basketball game played on Friday in Kershaw.
The eight-point victory gave the host Volunteers a sweep of the two-game season series between the two rivals.
Andy Johnson’s troops fell to 3-6 on the season with the setback.
AJ carried a 19-14 lead into the second quarter and added a point to its cushion at halftime carrying a 36-30 advantage into the locker room at intermission. The Knights chopped a point off the deficit, trailing 47-42 entering a final eight minutes of play in which the hosts outscored NC, 24-21.
For the second straight game, North Central senior forward Jeremy Fowler led the Knights with 26 points. He scored 26 in a loss to Lugoff-Elgin last Wednesday night. Fowler also brought down three rebounds.
Senior center Kawan Hough had a 16-point, eight-rebound night for Johnson and company who also received 11 points and seven rebounds from Josh Jones and a 10-point, three-bound game from senior guard Brady Brister.
Carolina Classic comes to The Castle: The Knights will host the May Plant Credit Union Carolina Classic on Thursday and Friday nights at The Castle in Boonetown.
