Friday night HOME game!! "A Battle of the IBs"....

Men's Varsity (13-4, 5-1, #6 N&O ranking) hosts Millbrook in a "Battle of the IB programs"!!Nothing academic about this conference match up as the margin of victory has been no more than 7 points in their last 5 games they have played each other. Millbrook plays a smothering, physical, full court man -to- man defense and it will be a very competitive defensive WAR! Always is! Broughton won the first game (49-43) at Millbrook this year and I know they will be seeking revenge but hopefully our home crowd will pull us to victory!

HOME game time is 7:00pm in Holliday Gym with Women's Varsity at 5:30pm.

Varsity rallies to OT, loses 66-57

BY JONATHAN RAND - N&O Correspondent

RALEIGH -- Enloe held off a solid Broughton comeback to claim a 66-57 Cap Eight 4-A boys basketball victory in overtime on Tuesday night.

Enloe (8-4, 4-0 and No. 12 in the N&O rankings) is tied with Wakefield for the league lead.

Broughton (10-3, 3-1) had shared a piece of the conference lead before the loss.

The score was tied at 49-49 at the end of regulation, and Broughton seemed to have the momentum with its home crowd on its feet, but the Eagles hit crucial shots, and the Caps seemed to run out of steam.

The game started off with a bang as Broughton used a barrage of 3-pointers to gain an early edge.

Enloe then tightened its defense as a frantic pace ensued midway through the first half.

Both teams pushed the tempo with the Eagles using their size down low to gain a 28-23 halftime lead.

The Eagles' Marcus Walker, who finished with 20 points, dominated play for much of the night and helped Enloe score the final 12 points of the third period for a 40-28 lead.

"I was impressed with how they played defensively," Broughton coch Jeff Ferrell said. "They forced us to get away from the things that got us here."

The Caps clawed their way back into the game using solid defense and some late-game heroics by guard Conor Strickland.

Strickland led all scorers with 23 points.

Broughton outscored the Eagles 21-9 in the fourth quarter.

BRO 12 11 5 21 8 - 57
ENL 13 15 12 9 17 - 66

Points: BRO--C. Strickland 23, S. Battle 13, C. Stewart 10, D.Graham 7, S. Kipuni 2, A.Ocampo 2; ENL--M.Walker 20, A.Bost 15, D.McAdams 13, Jas.Blakney 6, M.Dix 4, J.Miller 4, S.McGee 4.
