The Rampants we’re back in action Friday in the Pitt County Christmas Tournament after a 10 day lay off. Rose, the 1 seed in the tournament, played 4th seeded Conley after the Vikings beat North Lenoir on Thursday.
After jumping out to a 9-3 lead, Rose went cold from the field allowing Conley to take a halftime lead. After the break however, Rose’s defensive pressure and fast pace style allowed them to get a few quick baskets off of turnovers and took a three point lead into the fourth quarter. Rose, led by Aaron Murphy with 19 points and Kevin Hamilton with 14, dominated the paint and we’re able to capitalize on many second chance baskets, Rose, now 9-0 on the year, will play Greene Central tomorrow in the championship game set for 7:30 at Ayden Grifton.
