Hopewell 62, Ardrey Kell 38: Hopewell, No. 1 in the Sweet 16, held No. 16 Ardrey Kell without a field goal for nearly eight minutes starting in the middle of the second quarter and extending to the third. The Titans (12-0) built a big lead and moved to their second straight Bojangles' final.

Hopewell will face either Harding or Victory Christian in Wednesday's 8:30 p.m. championship game at Bojangles' Coliseum.

DeMon Brooks made 7-of-8 shot attempts and had 19 points and five rebounds for Hopewell. Ardrey Kell didn't have a double figure scorer. Justin Cheek led the team with 9 points.

Harding girls 47, Mallard Creek 43 OT: Harding shot 17 percent and scored only four points in the first quarter but rallied to win in overtime. The Rams grabbed 39 offensive rebounds and got 18 points from Olivia Parker, who had 10 rebounds. The Rams will play Hopewell in Wednesday's championship.

Greenville Southside 74, Concord Cannon 62: Cannon got 31 points and 12 rebounds from Virginia Tech signee Jarell Eddie, but lost for the second time in the tournament in as many days. Southside outscored Cannon 16-11 in the second quarter and 23-16 in the third to build a working margin.

Javaris Barksdale had 15 points and 10 rebounds for Southside, which bounced back from a blowout loss to Victory Christian Monday, by limiting Cannon to 36 percent shooting.

Victory Christian girls 55, West Meck 43: Victory Christian outscored West Meck 18-6 in the first quarter and 11-5 in the third opening up their consolation round win. Victory Christian got 18 points and 10 rebounds from Alexis Hicks. West Meck was led by November Mitchell and Sharnesha Brently, who both had 14

Ardrey Kell girls 72, West Charlotte 36: Ardrey Kell shot out to a 22-4 first quarter lead and led 40-16 at halftime. Four Knights scored in double figures: Katelyn White (13), Christelle Shembo (12), Erica Chandler (10) and Amanda Tyson (14).

West Charlotte got 13 points and 7 rebounds from sophomore Gabrielle McClain, who had her second straight strong showing.

Charlotte Christian boys 63, Concord Robinson 26: After a big rally against Hopewell last night, and ultimately a 3-point loss, Charlotte Christian had a quick turnaround for its 9 a.m. consolation game with Concord Robinson at Bojangles' Coliseum at 9 a.m. Tuesday morning.

No problem. The Knights forced Robinson into 11 percent shooting in the first half and 18 percent for the game. Christian outrebounded Robinson 41-25. The Knights led 29-8 at halftime.

Kyler Brown, who made 7-of-8 field goals, led the Knights with 15 points. Anthony Gill had 14 on 7-for-8 shooting. Christian shot 61.5 percent in the second half and 56.6 percent for the game.

Christian will play at 3:30 Wednesday at Bojangles' Coliseum against the winner of today's Concord Cannon-Greenville Southside game. If its Cannon, it would match two bitter conference rivals who shared the CISAA championship last season -- and two N.C. 3A Independent Schools state title contenders.
