Saturday’s Roundup

Parker Tompkins had 13 points, nine blocks, five rebounds and two steals for the Patriots, who lost to Carolina Day in the finals for the second straight year.

No. 6 Providence Day 58, High Point Wesleyan 57: The NCISAA 3A state championship game was close throughout, and every time Providence Day (24-4) tried to pull away, Wesleyan (24-7) would pull back. Wesleyan used a strategy on McDonald’s All-American Janelle Bailey that she said had not seen before, a full-court double team -- and dared other Chargers to beat them. But Bailey had another huge game and a three-point play from the UNC signee gave Providence Day a 56-51 lead with 41.1 seconds to play. She hit two free throws for a 58-51 lead. Wesleyan got a pair of three pointers, just six seconds apart, to close within one. Bailey missed two free throws with 3.5 seconds left before Wesleyan’s star player, Shaniya Jones (24 points) hit the rim with a potential game-winning shot at the buzzer.

No. 7 Ardrey Kell 53, No. 10 Hough 41: Deniyah Lutz had 16 points to lead the Knights to the win. Ardrey Kell held Hough to 12 points in the second and third quarters. Lauren Stokes had 19 for Hough.
