Haney and Kyire Hogan combined to score 14 points in the Cardinals’ 22-8 second-quarter run as they built a 42-24 lead at the half.

Showing some rust from a 10-day layoff that came as a result of the week’s ice and snow, Sprayberry needed the first quarter to get its bearings before outscoring North Springs 56-26 over the last three periods.

Nkem Ojeh led the Yellow Jackets with a double-double of 20 points and 11 rebounds. Wayne Jackson added 17 points, while Armel Potter also had a double-double with 12 points and 10 rebounds. David Tshamala had 12 points and six rebounds.
