GREENVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) — While it didn’t rain everywhere and we got all of the scheduled games in Friday night, some teams really poured it on against their opponents.
Jacksonville, J.H. Rose and New Bern pulled away from the pack with impressive victories on Friday in Big Carolina Conference play. That sets up next Friday’s game between Rose and New Bern with the winner still in possession of winning the regular-season title, depending on what Jacksonville does the rest of the way.
Washington and Greene Central were putting on a full-court press with scoring left and right in their game on Friday. Down the road, Kinston and James Kenan were having so much fun, they went to two overtimes.
Finally, John A. Holmes put up 91 points in its win over Currituck. As media personality Sam Walker in the Outer Banks noted, the game was tied 35-35 at one point.
Below are Friday’s scores and the remaining games to be played Monday, which were rescheduled due to the chance of rain.

GREENVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) — We’re deep into conference play and (knock on wood), we haven’t had to deal with games being postponed due to COVID-19 … just makeup games.
Of course, now we have to deal with the threat of rain.
Meteorologist Jerry Jackson says there’s at least a 40% chance of rain Wednesday through Sunday. So we may see rain, we may not. It could rain here but not over here. We’ll definitely have to keep our eyes open and see what happens.
For now, here’s the Week 8 schedule with one game from Week 7 included. As always, call ahead to make sure your school is still playing and that the schedule hasn’t changed due to the weather or COVID-19.
Games are at 7 p.m. unless indicated otherwise
