Porter Ridge boys itching to upset somebody

Pirates coming off win at Parkwood
Feb. 02, 2013 @ 04:29 PM

Porter Ridge's boys have already made strides under first-year coach Jim Rhodes, but the Pirates want more.
Porter Ridge broke through with its first conference win in four seasons by beating Parkwood earlier this month, and repeated the feat on Friday with a 58-47 road win.
Let the rest of the Southern Carolina Conference be warned: The Pirates are angling for an upset.
They have four league games remaining, plus the SCC tournament.
"We've been talking about it all year; let's go upset somebody," Rhodes said after Friday's win. "Let's go in and steal a win somewhere. That's still one of our goals and we're going to try and get that."
The Pirates, who travel to Weddington on Tuesday, are now 2-4 in the SCC and 6-12 overall.
Jerrick Robbins and Casey Hardison scored 10 points each for the Pirates on Friday, whle Caleb Homesley added nine and Dallas Austin eight.
Rhodes was pleased to see his team go 22-of-29 at the foul line.
"We were tough down the stretch and we hit our free throws," Rhodes said. "We talked about it in our huddles that we had to be razor-sharp down the stretch. They were going to be going for steals and we had to be strong with the ball. Our guys executed, we were strong with the ball so we were able to go to the foul line and we knocked them down."
Sam Mobley and James Houston scored 10 points each for Parkwood. Houston also had seven rebounds.
The Rebels are at Sun Valley on Tuesday.
