After a tough loss to Central Davidson January 13, the Montgomery Central High School boys’ varsity basketball team set out to prepare for their next game on the road against the Blue Comets of Asheboro, January 20. Asheboro was 11-4 overall and 3-0 at the top of the Mid Piedmont 3A Conference. Asheboro lost a close game to Ragsdale by two points, had a big loss to Randleman on the road, lost a close game to Thomasville by three points and the second game much more definitively to the Bulldogs in a re-match. When the Blue Comets win they tend to win big and they have an average of around 60-plus points a game to boast about offensively.

Asheboro had just defeated their conference rival North Davidson at home by a huge margin with a final score of 74-37. With a combination of powerful offense and a strong crush- ing defense, the Blue Comets were at the top of their game and prepared for another conference matchup at home against the Timberwolves. MCHS has been cold offensively and they have struggled to put together a complete game with flashes of momentum that have not come to full fruition as of yet. Making adjustments is difficult for a young team and this still seems to be a part of the struggle.
