Gaffney nears sophomore scoring record

Green Hope sophomore Kristen Gaffney has one more game left this season — Saturday's 4-A championship — and in it, she could break a record held by former UConn and Fayetteville Terry Sanford player Shea Ralph.

Ralph holds the state record for most points scored by a sophomore with 818. Gaffney is 12 short of that with 806.

Anything can happen in the state final, but it should be noted that Gaffney's lowest point total of the year is 13 in the Tri-Nine Championship against Athens Drive.

Gaffney might already have the record had she not missed an earlier game this year against Fuquay-Varina with illness.

Gaffney has posted six triple-doubles this season and went over the 1,000-point mark for her career in her last game.

Shared bus carries greater lesson for Clayton, Enloe girls teams

I asked Enloe girls basketball coach Pina Baker in Thursday night's
press conference if there was a point she had a second thought about
the moment she stopped her bus to pick up the Clayton High School girls
basketball team along 264.

The Eagles and Comets met for a spot
in the state semifinals at Greenville Rose High School on Saturday on
Thursday night. Enloe rallied for a 56-51 victory after trailing by as
many as 14 in the second half.

My question to Baker was a set up, I admit. And she did just what I expected her to do, she gave the perfect answer.
