Clemons brothers push Wildcats by Northern

Feb 26, 2013

After three possessions and three consecutive turnovers for Millbrook, the Wildcats looked to be a little bit shaky in the first round of the NCHSAA 4A playoffs, but Chris Clemons settled his squad down by burying his first 3 field goals, all from behind the arc. 

He sparked a 12-3 run that pushed Millbrook's lead to 21-10 in the first quarter, and though Northern Durham and Ricky Council would trim the lead before the end of the first, Millbrook never looked back en route to a 75-63 win.

The Wildcats got a solid night from Chris Clemons, who put up 13 points and had 3 assists, mostly in the first half. They also had a key performance from the other Clemons on the roster, Carlee Clemons who came alive in the second half with 3 dunks in the second half, and a pair of steals on his way to a 20 point night.

The Wildcats slowly and steadily built a 14 point lead by halftime and maintained that advantage through the end of 3 quarters, but Council and the Knights wouldn't go away. 

As Millbrook tried to milk the clock beginning the fourth quarter up 14, the Knights worked hard on the defensive end forcing 3 turnovers in the first 3 minutes of the quarter, but they were only able to cut the lead to 9 before another Carlee Clemons dunk turned the momentum back in Millbrook's favor.

Council was 7 of 9 from the field, including 3 of 4 from beyond the 3-point line. He finished with 20 points to lead the Knights. Kourtney Farrow added 17 on 7 of 11 shooting from the line. 

Millbrook advances to face Apex on the road in the second round of the playoffs on Wednesday night. The Cougars held off Lumberton 61-58 in first round action.

Northern Durham's season comes to a close with a record of 13-11, finishing 4th in the PAC-6.
