Nantahala-Robbinsville was literally the only game in town Wednesday.
Every other one scheduled, whether it involved a Western North Carolina boys or girls NCHSAA basketball playoff team, was postponed.
Tyler Long led four Black Knights players in double figures with 17 points and Zane Wachacha added 16 in a 82-34 road win at Nantahala.
Cruz Galaviz was close behind with 14 points and Ellis DeHart had 13 for the 17th seeded Black Knights (18-5). They were ahead in the first-round NCHSAA 1-A playoff game, 57-25, at the half and 68-26 after the third quarter.
Tristan Howard was the top scorer for the 16th-seeded Hawks (7-14) with 12 points.
Robbinsville will now await the winner of No. 32 Mitchell (8-16) and No. 1 Albemarle (22-0) in the second round.
