South Johnston’s varsity boys basketball team downed Smithfield-Selma, 67-49, on Senior Night for the Trojans on Friday.
The games were originally scheduled for Thursday but were postponed when after-school activities were called off in Johnston County due to the threat of severe weather.
The junior varsity boys game will be made up at South on Monday at 5:30 p.m.
The Trojans took control early in improving to 19-3 overall and 6-2 in the Greater Neuse 3-A Conference.
A hoop by David Carter put South ahead to stay at 5-3. The Trojans extended their advantage to 40-18 at the half.
C.J. Ray led the hosts with 14 points and Carter added 12.
“What worked best was unselfishness, sharing the ball and their energy,” said South boys coach Brody Massengill. “We need to work on our dribble penetration.”
SSS came back from a 23-22 halftime deficit to win the girls game, 59-40.
