Hendley, Lee County Win Playoff Opener

Wake Forest basketball signee Todd Hendley scored 16 points to help Lee County to a 50-45 win over Garner Wednesday night in North Carolina high school playoff action.

Todd Hendley and Lee County Senior High School won their opening round playoff game Wednesday night 50-45 over Garner. With the win, Lee County advances to play Millbrook Friday night at Lee County.

"[Todd] had 16 points, a couple big dunks, and two three-pointers," Hendley's father said. "He also had 7-8 rebounds."

"The game was alright," Todd said. "The second half was pretty rough because they packed it in a zone and we didn't lose the lead, but we had to penetrate and kick. We had some open jumpers though, and I was 2-2 from three-point range in the game."

Lee County will be back in action Friday night against Southeast Raleigh. SE Raleigh beat Millbrook 83-74 Wednesday night. Friday's game will be at Lee County.
