Solid fourth lifts Hickory past Lady Red Devils

December 5, 2011

Trailing by two entering the fourth, Hickory powered its way to 24 points in the final quarter, lifting the Lady Red Tornadoes past Newton-Conover, 59-48.

It was about as even as it could get in the early going. Newton-Conover (2-1) and Hickory (4-0) both scored nine points in the first quarter and 16 points in the second quarter, leaving the game tied 25-25 at halftime.

A two-point cushion entering the fourth quarter gave the Lady Red Devils hope they could come away with the victory, but that all changed in the fourth.

December 5, 2011

Hickory hit 14 three-pointers Monday against Newton-Conover, which helped propel them to a dominant 87-43 victory over the visiting Red Devils.

Jalen Byrd helped his team right out of the gate, scoring 12 of Hickory's 25 points in the first quarter — two of which came from three-point territory. He finished with a game-high 14 points.

Also strong for Hickory was Raheim Connelly, who netted four three-pointers and scored 12 points in the game.

The Red Tornadoes led 48-18 at the halftime break.

Kurt Busch out at Penske

December 5, 2011

CHARLOTTE — Kurt Busch and Penske Racing parted ways Monday after six bumpy seasons, a split that clouds the former champion's future in NASCAR as he embarks on a personal journey to reclaim his passion for racing.

Both the team and driver said ending the relationship was a "mutual agreement," but most believe Busch was fired in the fallout of yet another embarrassing incident. A fan caught Busch on video verbally abusing an ESPN reporter during last month's season finale, and Busch was fined $50,000 by NASCAR after the clip was posted on YouTube.
