As he approaches 2,000 career points and 500 assists, senior guard Zeke Brock of Cape Fear Christian Academy had to resolve a little problem before the Eagles took on visiting Lee Christian in Mid-Carolina 1-A Conference basketball on Tuesday night.

The blue and gold sneakers that Brock has been wearing this seasson were locked up in a vehicle and Brock did not have access to the key.

The situation was taken care of as Brock borrowed some shoes from assistant coach Parker Watson before scoring a season-high 44 points in an 88-50 win over the Falcons. He added 10 assists.

CFCA swept five games from Lee on Tuesday and Wednesday.

On Tuesday, the junior varsity boys took their eighth straight win, 53-24, and the varsity girls downed the Lady Falcons, 51-27.

In middle school matchups on Wednesday, CFCA’s boys improved to 6-1 with a 44-41 victory and the Eagle girls remained unbeaten in the MCC, 52-10. The boys played first on Wednesday because the Lee girls went to the wrong site and were late arriving.

Varsity boys

Caden Scarborough added 21 points as the Eagles improved to 9-8 overall and 5-2 in league play.

“Zeke was tremendous offensively, along with Scarborough,” said CFCA coach Dwain Ellis. “Our entire team was focused and executed on defense. We showed improvement from the last matchup with them.”

The Eagles won, 73-66, at Lee Christian on December 11.

Varsity girls

CFCA coach Ray Butts liked what he saw from a newly-installed triangle offense.

“We got Glenna (McLamb) more shots and we had better movement on the floor,” he said.

Perri Caroline Ennis led the scoring with 14 points. McLamb scored 12 and Ella John Dupree tallied 11.

Laney Trainer had eight points. Adding two points each were Courtney Butts, Savannah Autry and Madeline Brocious.

The Lady Eagles are 4-6 overall and 3-2 in the MCC.

Junior varsity boys

CFCA (8-1, 5-0 MCC) got 17 points, five rebounds, four steals and a blocked shot from Conner Parrish.

“Our defense once again was exceptional as our pressure created runouts and a lot of transition baskets,” said Coach Bill Parrish.

The Eagles came back from a layoff since December 14 by taking a 12-2 first quarter lead.

Fisher Stancil had 10 points, four rebounds, two steals and two assists.

Taylor Smith contributed nine points, three steals and five assists. Cade Godwin added five points, five rebounds and two assists. Elijah Ellis’ numbers included four points, five rebounds, three steals and two assists.

Justin Chestnut had four points, three steals and two assists. Greyson Avent and Eli Shwaikeh had two points apiece.

Middle school boys

Shwaikeh had 14 points for CFCA and Tyson Stephens had 13.

The Eagles got seven points from Luke Meyer, five from Ben Thompson, four from Gunner Dorman and one from Sawyer Tyndall.

“The team did a great job playing defense and moving the ball on offense,” said Coach Alex Godwin.

Middle school girls

Coach Falon Kessler was home because of a sick child but Braxton Wynns and Sheila Godwin filled in.

Grace Bruha led the scoring with 10 points. Kinsley Godwin had seven points. Mary Andemichael had six points.

Carolina Wynns and Ella Wilborn scored five points each.

Finley Phillips and Hayden Deese added four points apiece. Lily Stanley scored three. Tallying two points each were Bristol Stephens, Isabella Autry, Mady Tyndall and Sailor Phillips.
