Post game comments from Roanoke Rapids head coach Tyler Snyder, "We played a very up tempo game that I think took them away from their strengths. They had a lot of size. We played great defensively putting pressure on the ball handlers and causing them to turn the ball over a bunch. These guys passed up open shots to give a teammate an open shot. I'm very proud of them tonight."


 Roanoke Rapids Yellow Jackets host the Weldon Chargers Wednesday December 7th at the "HIVE" with the JV Boys starting at 4:30 PM.
