Adonis Avery added 18. Cameron Richardson led Whiteville with 14 points. Ervin Moore contributed nine points.

Whiteville faced Dillon, SC in Friday’s opener. Dillon held a 28-22 advantage at halftime. The Wildcats stretched the lead to 43-36 after three periods before holding off a Wolfpack comeback attempt in the final quarter to escape with a 60-59 win. Cameron Smith led Whiteville with 15 points.
