BAILEY — The Nash Central girls love to shoot 3-pointers, but they couldn’t connect to start Friday.

The third seed Bulldogs were down six points to Rocky Mount High at halftime, and they made only two 3s in that time span. The good looks they felt they were getting didn’t…

Bobby Williams just wanted to give his big man a break.

As the third quarter against Rocky Mount Prep trickled away, the Williamston Riverside coach looked down his bench for a sub. He picked the best shooter he saw, Jahkee Cooper, to bring in for 6-foot-7 Markel Freeman. 

The coach got what…
