NC Wesleyan matchups postponed

ROCKY MOUNT — N.C. Wesleyan College’s USA South men’s basketball game on the road against Pfeiffer was postponed from its scheduled Saturday tip-off.

The Battling Bishops and Pfeiffer will work to reschedule the game at a later date, N.C. Wesleyan said on its college athletics website.

Wesleyan’s home game with William Peace on  Jan. 5 was also postponed due to health and safety protocols. That game is now scheduled for 7:30 p.m. Monday, Jan. 17, in Rocky Mount.

The Lady Bishops’ USA South road games against Southern Virgina on Friday and Mary Baldwin on Sunday were also postponed due to health and safety protocols.

N.C. Wesleyan is now scheduled to take on SVU at 5 p.m. on Feb. 14. A new date for the Mary Baldwin game hasn’t yet been announced.

Citing the recent surge in COVID-19 cases, NCWC encouraged fans to visit www.ncwcsports.com for updates on possible postponements and cancellations.

Firebirds flatten Bunn 62-27

It took Southern Nash only a minute to score 11 points, and the Firebirds coasted from there to a 62-27 2-A/3-A Big East Conference varsity boys basketball home win against Bunn on Tuesday, Jan. 4.

With the junior varsity boys and varsity girls games postponed due to COVID protocols, the Firebirds, 9-2 overall, raced to their fourth conference win without a loss.

Sophomore Von Witt led the way with a season-high 18 points while senior T.J. Taybron and sophomore Jordan Vick each netted 13 points for the 3-A Firebirds. The 2-A Wildcats exited 4-9 overall and winless in three Big East outings.
