Another doubleheader Friday night at RMHS
Everyone knows that it's just a blessing to still be playing basketball a week after your conference tournament.
That means your team or teams have won two straight playoff games and is in the NCHSAA sectional finals. Just one game away from next week's East regionals - which have been moved this season from Greenville (Williams Arena, Rose High School) to Fayetteville and the Crown Coliseum Complex.
That's exactly where Rocky Mount is now with not one, but both varsity basketball teams.
And they will be playing familiar foes Friday evening.
The Rocky Mount girls, sporting a 25-3 worksheet - a school record for wins by a girls team, will meet South Central (24-4) for the third time this campaign. Tip-off is at 6 p.m.
South Central (24-4) features two Div. I signees in point guard
Ja'Nesha Ebron (East Carolina) and forward Danielle Butts (UNC).

The Gryphon boys (21-7) are trying their best to repeat as 3-A state champions. They will tangle with West Craven (23-5) in the nightcap at about 7:30. The two teams met last season in the sectional semifinals at RMHS and the Gryphons won handily 94-66.

Following a great evening last Friday before a packed house, perhaps RMHS can pull off another double win to send it packing down I-95!
