An empty gym and a 10 a.m. tipoff is usually recipe for the strange and unexpected, but the West Forsyth and Forsyth Central boys didn’t get that memo. The county rivals raced through an entertaining first quarter and were within single digits at halftime—not the sleepy start that could rightfully be expected—before West used two big second-half runs to put away the Bulldogs, 71-54, at the Wolverine Winter Classic on Monday morning. “It really doesn’t matter if it’s at two o’clock in the morning or 10 a.m.,” West coach Jim Cook said.
