  • Cannon’s Cougars hosted one of the state of North Carolina’s most powerful clubs, Wesleyan Christian from High Point, on Tuesday night. Wesleyan came into the game boasting a lineup that consisted of at least four or five Division I prospects, led by Soph. Theo Pinson who is considered one of the top 10th Graders in the United States, Montay Brandon who has committed to Florida State and Jaquel Richmond who is being recruited by ACC schools. Cannon would withstand Brandon’s offensive onslaught in the first quarter and actually outscore the Trojans 26-22 in the second quarter. The Cougars would whittle Wesleyan’s once 20-point lead down to six on a couple of occasions. A late Trojan run spear-headed by Trey Chapman would push Wesleyan’s lead to 47-36 at intermission. Pinson would take the game over for Wesleyan in the second half. He would bomb in 4 heavily contested 3-pointers and lead the Trojans to their 100-65 victory.  For Cannon, Jr. Alec Wintering would score 25 points, hand out 5 assists, pull down 5 rebounds and collect 5 steals. Soph. Jared Hamilton would score 11 points and Jr. Myles Martino would also 10 points.
