Demons survive NC scare to take MCCCU tourney crown
SOPHOMORE FORWARD ZACH JONES (24) paced North Central with 16 points to go along with 12 rebounds in Tuesdays loss to Lugoff-Elgin in the finals of the Mid-Carolina Credit Union Basketball Tournament played at The Castle in Boonetown.
With the way North Central’s luck has been this season, first-year Knights’ head coach Cary Phillips was hoping that at least this one break would go his team’s way. With the tourney hosts trailing Lugoff-Elgin, 63-60, in Tuesday’s championship game of the Mid-Carolina Credit Union Holiday Tournament at The Castle in Boonetown, North Central had one last chance to send the game into overtime with a 3-point goal. Instead, the shot did everything but drop as the Demons won the title with a 63-60 win over the Knights.
