Cary, NC — The Cary Invasion welcomed Raleigh’s Stealth All-Stars to the Kay Yow Court for what Cary hoped would not be a repeat of last season’s only home loss.
Invasion Beats Raleigh Stealth 123-104
The Raleigh Stealth came to play but, from the opening basket until the final buzzer, the Invasion maintained consistent control of the game. However, Cary stayed only a handful of points in the lead throughout the game until the Stealth went cold mid-fourth quarter and gave the Invasion the win of 123-104.
High Scoring, Fast-Paced Game
For the Stealth, Lance Beckwith hit eight 3-pointers amassing 26-points in the game. Jordan Vandenburg followed up with 17 points and 12 rebounds, while former Invasion players Chris Poole and Will Roach added 16 and 15 points respectively to the Stealth’s total.
Top Tobacco Road Basketball League (TRBL) scorers Corey Evans and Paul Wright set the tone for the Invasion’s dominance with game high-scorer Wright delivering 29 points, four assists, and seven rebounds. Evans added 18 points to the mix while shooting 100% from the line.
Forwards Robert Helaire and Mike Smith each contributed 15 points, while shooting guard Taylor Hukill added 14 points. Center Reheem Oshodi and power forward Rodney Callwood rounded out the scoring, delivering 10 points each.
Next Home Games
The 7-1 Invasion will be taking the next few weeks off before they begin their Western Division run against the as-of-now unbeaten 4-0 Charlotte Elite at home on Saturday, March 7, 2015.
You can catch the Invasion before that on February 7, 2015 as they play their third annual exhibition game vs. the Cary Police Department to benefit the great work of Dorcas Ministries.
