The Bulldogs have won five of their last six games.
CONCORD, N.C. — Just one night removed from scoring a season-high 30 points, Jay M. Robinson’s Daniel Spencer upped the ante with a school record 44 point performance in a 98-77 win over Concord Wednesday.
The Bulldogs also got some good news on the court when Lavar Batts, Jr. played with no signs of a sprained ankle that kept him from playing in Tuesday’s loss at West Charlotte.
Robinson came out of the gate strong, giving the Spiders a preview of what’s to come when Robinson joins the SPC beginning in 2015, taking a 42-32 lead into the locker room at halftime. That didn’t deter the Spiders, who refused to go away behind freshman Rechon Black’s four three-point baskets in a thrilling third quarter that saw Concord draw within two points at 57-55.
Unfortunately for Concord, the momentum came to a screeching halt when Robinson took off on a 9-0 run, putting the game out of reach down the stretch, pulling away for the 98-77 victory.
For Spencer, the night was better than he could have imagined following a transfer from Concord in the 2013-14 academic year. Scoring a school and career record against his former school couldn’t have been much sweeter for Spencer. Spencer transferred from Concord last year after being told he would be placed on the junior varsity team.
The Bulldogs bounced back from Tuesday’s loss at West Charlotte with big contributions from Lavar Batts, Jr., who scored 26 points, and Conner Boothe, who piled on another 14 points. Concord had four players hit double figures, led by Hamsah Nasirildeen’s 18. Rechon Black (17), Ray Kowalski (16), and Alon Parker (12) also contributed for the Spiders.
