Wheels & Steals Tournament Champion & 3 More Season Wins!


11/23/2012

The TarWheels traveled to Charleston, SC for the North Charleston Hurricanes' Wheels and Steals Tournament. This, being the TarWheels 4th year of existence, was also the 4th year in a row of winning the tournament in Charleston! The team, for the first time this season, was able to have all members of the TarWheels in attendance for a tournament! This lead to improved game play throughout the tournament as everyone got on the same page.

Our first game on November 18th actually went into overtime after a slow start playing the Port City Spokesmen. The TarWheels pulled ahead in the five minutes of extra play and beat Port City. Donnie Langford was the leading scorer with 19 points and also 9 assists! Steve Lister scored 9, and Jeff Brafford had 4 forced turnovers, also credit Richard Travis with 3 steal!

The second game came on day 2 of the tournament against the Fayetteville Flyers. The TarWheels had a strong start from tip off and played a great game. Travis lead the TarWheels scoring with 17 points, Langford with 15 points/ 7 assists. We had some great rebounding with Lister bringing down 6 and Pete Morgan securing 5 defensive rebounds!

The second win took the TarWheels to the championship game of the bracket. Fayetteville played another game and won fighting their way back for another chance at the TarWheels. This game was closer, but the TarWheels kept the lead. Roger White's 12 points, Langford and Travis' 11 points each as well as 8 assists from Langford along with the rest of the teams great play lead to the third win of the weekend! The TarWheels were proud to bring home our first place trophy from the always hospitable Charleston Tournament!

December 1st the TarWheels look to improve on their 7-0 record and will be traveling to Spartanburg, SC to play the Pistons in the third and fourth meeting between the two teams this season. These upcoming games  in The TarWheels' schedule are part of the required conference play. Although they are out of town, look for the team to show up ready to play!
