Other leading scorers for Nansemond were AJ Franklin (15 off the bench), Fred Spratley (16) and Dennis Conley (13). Warrior sharpshooter Letrone Deimel was held scoreless by Western.
The Warriors will host Granby, the number two team in the district on Monday. Granby was knocked off by Norview in an Eastern District Semi-Final game on Friday. They received an at-large bid due to their regular season and district standings. They finished second behind Maury who was also upset in the semi-finals of the Eastern Tournament by Lake Taylor.
It was reported that Drexel Coach James "Bruiser" Flint and NC State Assistant Coach Mark Phelps were both in the house for the Nansemond's victory.
The All-District Team, Regular Season Champions (Nansemond), Tournament Champions (Nansemond), and Tournament MVP (Marquie Cooke) were all announced last night.
