Lady Red Devils win ugly game, advance to finals

February 15, 2012

In a game that included a combined 40 fouls and 50 turnovers, the Newton-Conover girls basketball team survived an early scare from South Iredell to advance to Friday's CVAC 2A tournament final with a 65-37 victory.

The Lady Red Devils (23-3) will meet the winner of No. 2 Bandys and No. 3 East Burke in the championship game.

"It was ugly. That's all I can say," said N-C coach Ike Williams. "We kind of knew Bandys would be here scouting. We wanted to be conservative with the game plan and what we ran. Obviously, it ended up being an ugly game."

CORAL GABLES, Fla. — Harrison Barnes scored 23 points and No. 8 North Carolina used smothering defense to rally from an eight-point deficit in the second half and beat Miami 73-64 Wednesday night.

The Tar Heels, who came in leading the nation with 83.5 points per game, shot only 38 percent and went 5 for 18 from 3-point range. But they forced turnovers on four consecutive possessions in the second half to get back in the game, and held Miami without a point for nearly five minutes down the stretch.
