2.Goldsboro 13-2(4-1)
3.East Duplin 7-5(3-2)

6.James Kenan 9-3(1-3)
7. Midway 5-7(0-3)

Last night's games
Goldsboro 98 East Duplin 47

Seems like Goldsboro recaptured alil bit of that swagger they lost last week after getting blown out by Clinton. East Duplin had looked good in some previous games but got a wake up call last night.

Final Clinton 88 JK 65 Clinton improves to 17-1(8-0)......gonna need a much better defensive effort tomorrow night vs Goldsboro....offensive output was as good as usual multiple players in double figures gotta play tougher defense against a Goldsboro team at home looking for revenge for that earlier 40 point blowout

One thing I'm worried bout is complacency if they can fight that off they have a chance to make some history

In the real poll that matters, Clinton is ranked #5 in the state. If things don't change that means Kinston and Fairmont will be higher seeds due to strength of schedule.

You would hope that dominate win over the #6 team on the road like that would cause a slight rise in the ranking.....if Clinton runs the table and wins the conference tourney in convincing fashion I would think that would be good enough to at least get the 2 if not 1 overall seed in the East......

On the girls side not much to talk about it's a two team race East Duplin and Midway they split the two meetings both teams winning by 3 points....1/20 Midway 49 ED 46 the last week ED 57 Midway 54....when those two meet in the conference tournament it should be a barn burner

What is crazy is how Green Central is ranked higher than Kinston because Kinston beat them and they are in same conference.
Greene Central and Kinston are both huge as far as size is concerned I look forward to seeing how we match up if our paths cross in the upcoming playoffs.....but until then one game at a time

Ok quick question for Clinton fans who follow football up here....why can Jahiem Faison play JV basketball but wasn't allowed to finish out the football season? And never really got a clear explanation why he was removed from football...someone posted something about out of district concerns....he was the teams leading rusher at the time of his dismissal and seemed to be getting his footing as a sophomore on varsity....I hope this means he will be able to play football next year

He had to wait for Cumberland county to clear him and they took the remainder of the season (football) to do so. Apparently he was living in clinton with his sister while his mom was living in Cumberland county. Precaution wise he was held out till cleared but you Are at the mercy of the county In which the parent lives to clear you, and they drug their feet. He is good to go now.
