Senior star nets a double-double in win over North Meck (NC)


No. 2 Archbishop Spalding opened its run at the John Wall Invitational, Monday, with a 79-73 win over North Meck (NC) in an opening round game of the Devonte Graham Bracket.

Senior star Cam Whitmore, who will take his talents to Villanova University next year, scored a game-high 22 points and completed a double-double with 14 rebounds. He also had 4 assists.

Jordan Pennick scored 13 of his 17 points in the first half for the Cavaliers as they built a 45-32 lead. North Meck got back within six after three quarters, but they could not slow Whitmore often enough to pull even.

Spalding will now enjoy a day off before facing Burlington Prep (NC) in Wednesday’s semifinal round.
