Foster Leads Reynolds To Win

DURHAM, N.C. – Two-time defending state champion Winston-Salem Reynolds, a Top 25 national team a year ago, took another step toward the N.C. state championship on Saturday. Led by junior power forward Keith Foster, Reynolds escaped against Durham Riverside 79-56.

Foster Dominates Inside For Reynolds

Two-time defending 3-A state champion Winston-Salem Reynolds was on the road for Saturday's playoff game against Durham Riverside. The only advantage the Pirates had was that the game was on their home court because Reynolds had the size, the speed and most of the talent. In the end, Reynolds was just too much.

6-8 junior power forward Keith Foster was dominant at times in leading Reynolds to the 79-56 win. Foster carried the load for Reynolds as his junior teammate and frontcourt mate Eddie Greene did not start and played sparingly.

No problem, Foster was plenty good enough. He scored 25 points. Riverside really didn't have a guy big enough or strong enough to guard him once he dove to the blocks. They couldn't spend a lot of time doubling him with junior small forward Reyshawn Terry and senior guard Whit Holcomb-Faye on the perimeter.

Terry scored 10 points and grabbed 13 rebounds in an impressive and efficient offensive and defensive performance. Holcomb-Faye, coming off an injury, distributed the basketball better than we've ever seen him and approached the 10-assist mark in the game. In fact, the entire Reynolds team shared the basketball extremely well.

North Carolina coach Matt Doherty was in attendance watching Terry.
