Myles Grier had a well-rounded game with 6 points, 5 rebounds, and 4 steals. Eric Fromke, Blake Brewer, and Daniel Wyatt each chipped in with 5 points to round out the scoring.

  • The Lady Cougars traveled to Forsyth County Day School Tuesday for a non conference match up. The first quarter came and went with the usual offensive woes as Forsyth led 12-6. But Emma Virtanen and Mackenzie Moyer got it going offensively and the Lady Cougars charged back but still trailed 24-19 at the half. The third quarter proved to be pivotal as Cannon began to creep back but Forsyth remained steady and maintained their lead 38-35 as the fourth quarter began. Forsyth realizing that they had awaken a giant attempted to stall there way to victory by holding the ball for the remaining 4 minutes of the game. The Lady cougars made adjustments and with some great defense by Chantal Neuwald, Julie Harriss and Anna Estep stayed in striking distance. With 4 seconds left Chantal hit a layup and created a turnover which allowed Coach Warren an opportunity to setup the winning shot. As setup in the timeout the Lady Cougars executed the play but Chantal missed as time ran out losing 43-42.  E.Virtanen 20, C.Neuwald 8, M.Moyer 7, J.Harriss 4, O.Osborne 3


  • Cannon traveled to Lewisville on Tuesday night and took on the Furies of Forsyth Country Day School. The Cougars would have had their hands full with FCDS under normal circumstances. Their squad is led by ACC-recruit and North Carolina State signee, Tyler Lewis. To make matters more difficult, Cannon’s inexplicable rash of injuries this season continued to decimate its roster. The team had already suffered the loss of their starting PG, Alec Wintering, for the first half of the season. The Cougars have also been without the services of their one-time leading scorer and rebounder, Matthew Godley since early December. Starting SG Tommy Chepke had his season officially come to a close recently when he simply could not fully recover from a nagging ankle injury that occurred pre-Christmas. On Monday, Cannon would lose the services of starting Forward, leading rebounder and second leading scorer, Hans Christian Lauer to an ankle injury. To further add insult to injury, Jr. Captain and starting forward, Will Nork, stayed home from school with an illness and would not make the trip. So with the odds decidedly stacked against them, the Cougars would take the court versus a Furies squad led by an ACC point guard and at least two other Division I prospects. For the first half of the game something special was occurring for the Cougars. Cannon’s team, led by some absolute ball handling mastery by PG Alec Wintering, would match FCDS shot for shot. The tête-à-tête occurring between Wintering and Lewis was worth the price of admission. Alec would explode for 20 first half points. His counterpart from FCDS would score 15. Cannon would also get some huge support from Sr. Stewart Brown who nailed two 3-pointers and scored on a put-back basket. Sr. Graham Lombardi would nail a three-ball out of the left corner and at the half the Cougars were in the ball game trailing only 42-37 in this run-and-shoot affair.  FCDS’s Tyler Lewis would thrash the Cannon defense with dribble penetration in the second half. Lewis would go off for 17 second half points to finish with 32 for the game and he was aided by his teammate, Sven Malus, who would go for 22 points in the game, 14 of which came in the second half. Wintering and Brown would do their best to keep Cannon in the game. Alec would score 13 second half points and Brown would hit another pair of 3-pointers, but in the end there simply was not enough pellets in the rifle. FCDS would run to a 85-66 victory.  For the game Alec Wintering would finish with an astonishing 33 points, 10 assists and 4 steals. Stewart Brown would score a career high 16 points.
