Markell Portee exploded for a career-best 27 points in helping the North Central boys’ basketball team to a 61-59 win over host Buford in a Friday night game played in Lancaster County. The victory gave Kerry Hayes and company a 4-5 record in Region 4-AA play heading into tonight’s home game with visiting Chesterfield which kicks off a regular season-ending three-game homestand for the Knights who will entertain Cheraw on Wednesday before Central heads to Boonetown on Friday. In the girls’ game, Buford overcame a 22-point effort from NC junior guard Kali Tomlin to pin a 53-39 loss on the Lady Knights who fell to 1-8 in conference play.
