Coaches vs. Cancer game raises almost $600

January 25, 2012

Last Friday’s fundraiser game between Maiden and Newton-Conover raised almost $600.

All proceeds raised go toward “Coaches vs. Cancer.”

Money was raised through various donations, a 50/50 raffle held in the third quarter of the boys game and $1 half court shots.

The Coaches versus Cancer Council was formed in 1998 to help raise funds through coaches to fight cancer.

The Newton-Conover and Maiden basketball game was one of several area contests that raised money for the organization.

Hickory Christian Academy will raise money Friday at its game against Statesville Christian.

Wizards beat Bobcats 92-75 in Wittman's first game

January 25, 2012

WASHINGTON — Nick Young scored 20 points, and Andray Blatche had 17 points and 10 rebounds to lead the Washington Wizards to a 92-75 win over the Charlotte Bobcats on Wednesday night in Randy Wittman's first game as coach.

Wittman took over for the fired Flip Saunders on Tuesday, and guided the team without the benefit of a practice. Saunders' lead assistant has been an NBA coach twice — with Minnesota and Cleveland. His career record improved to 101-207.

He didn't change the starting lineup.

"All these guys get a clean slate with me," Wittman said.
