The Louisburg College Men's Basketball team hosted Vance-Granville Community College in a Wednesday night contest resulting in a 97-69 Hurricane win. The game featured a host of role changes as sophomore forward, Jordan Oakley, sat the game out with a minor injury. Oakley will return to the lineup for Saturday's contest.
The Vanguards were able to keep things relatively close early, staying within ten points, before the Canes used a spurt of 14 consecutive points to put some breathing room between themselves and visiting VGCC. Louisburg outscored Vance-Granville 12-7 over the final three minutes of the first half to lead 57-30 at the break.
The teams traded buckets for most of the second half as the Canes cruises to the finish line and won convincingly 97-69.
Armoni Lee led the scoring for Louisburg with his 20 points. He was joined in double figures by five other Canes - three off the bench - including Jalen Gaddy with 14 and Seth McCoy with 15 on five triples from beyond the arc.
Louisburg will return to action on the hardwood Saturday afternoon for a 3pm tip at Guilford Tech.
Louisburg now sits atop the Region X standings at 10-2 in league play while boasting a 17-4 overall record as they head down the stretch run.
