CHAPEL HILL -- Junior J'Quan Deal and sophomore Zaire Stukes combined for 44 points and 14 rebounds en route to a 59-46 road win over Woods Charter in NCAC play on Tuesday night. The victory, the second in a row and fifth on the year for RTHS, also set a school record for wins in a season with nine games remaining in the regular season.
The Raptors (5-9, 3-5 NCAC) and Woods played a back-and-forth affair for much of the third quarter. A 30-foot heave by freshman guard Beau Bryant at the 1st quarter buzzer seemed to ignite RTHS, who led by as much as 12 in the second quarter and took a 26-16 lead into the locker room at intermission.
The Wolves (1-8, 1-7) slowly chipped away at the Raptors' lead throughout the third quarter and into the fourth, getting within 2 points at 40-38 with five minutes remaining. Deal then went to work, scoring nine points over the final eight minutes while Stukes dominated the low post to put Woods away. Deal and Stukes each scored 22 on the night.
RTHS will host phenom point guard Darius McGhee and Roxboro Community School on Saturday afternoon at Hope Valley Gym in Durham; tipoff will be at approximately 4:30.
