Paul Stone (Danville, VA/Dan River HS) led the way in the consolation bracket game as he scored 21 points on 6-13 shooting. The sophomore guard was perfect from the free throw line where he went 8-8 and he helped out on defense where he made a pair of blocks.

Hurricane guards, Antonio Robinson (Winston Salem, NC/Parkland HS) and Kevin Williams (Franklinton, NC/Franklinton HS) also helped out on the offensive side of the court as they each chipped in with 13 points. Tyquan Roberts (Greensboro, NC/Ragsdale HS) was the final LC player to hit for double-digits as he scored 11.

With the win, Louisburg will continue play in the consolation bracket and take on Howard CC (Maryland) tomorrow at 2:00 pm local time.
