The North Forsyth Lady Raiders have won a lot of basketball games this season with sound, conventional game plans, aiding them en route to 18 straight wins to start the year and a 24-2 record. Monday’s 60-47 victory over West Forsyth in the Region 6-AAAAA semi-final, however, was the result of an unconventional strategy, one found deep in coaches’ playbooks. With four and a half minutes left in regulation, North led West by two after trailing through much of the second half.
