There was a minimum of one collegiate basketball match held on Colony Road.
Last night, the girls teams from Myers Park and Richmond were not affected by any delays or postponements, unlike the boys basketball teams who were scheduled to compete in a contest that was ultimately postponed.
After the final buzzer, Myers Park had dominated the second half and secured a 56-41 win in a nonconference game.
The 15th-ranked Myers Park (2-0) team, representing the 704 area, was guided by Amani Barner’s 15 points from the freshman. The junior Chayla McDaniel contributed 14 points and the senior Jerin Tuesdale added 13, resulting in a well-rounded offense.
The score was 25-23 in favor of the Mustangs at halftime.
