Top Rocky Mount hoop scorers meet

Rocky Mount senior forward Tashawn Mabry (left) got the opportunity to meet Gryphon legend Phil Ford (right) when the Rocky Mount varsity boys basketball team took in a Charlotte Bobcats game at Time Warner Cable Arena in Charlotte recently.

Ford, who is an assistant coach with the Bobcats, was the school's all-time leading scorer (2,093 points) until Mabry moved passed the N.C. Sports Hall of Famer last month.

Mabry has scored 2,242 points going into Wednesday's Big East Tournament semifinal game with Nash Central.
