Jan. 24, 2013 @ 05:51 PM

Monroe High's girls built a 20-point lead in the second half and cruised in for a 60-52 home win over Parkwood on Wednesday, just a day after defeating archrival Forest Hills.
Daya Jordan's layup with 5:28 left in the fourth quarter completed a 10-0 run that put the Redhawks ahead 53-33.
Jordan, a senior guard, scored a team-high 20 points and her younger sister, Asha, had 19 points and 12 rebounds.
The Redhawks have won seven straight games to improve to 13-1 on the season under first-year coach Chanda Wright.
"They are clicking as a team and they are playing team ball," Wright said. "I've tried to get them to see what's going on more over the entire court. We have a few plays and they have to come down see what's available and make the right call. Tonight we were able to do that."
Sophomore center Zasha Barrett was also productive for the Redhawks, finishing with 12 points and 11 boards.
The loss overshadowed the spectacular performance of Parkwood junior forward Emry Tsitouris, who had 23 points and 20 rebounds.
Tsitouris went over 1,000 points for her career on the night, and now has 1,011.
It was the first 20-20 game of the season for Tsitouris, who entered averaging 19.9 points and 15.2 rebounds.
The Rebels, now 11-4 on the season, got 16 points from senior guard Maggie Smith.
The Redhawks led 30-17 at halftime and 43-31 after three quarters.
Parkwood travels to Weddington on Friday while the Redhawks travel to West Stanly.

Junior Sam Mobley scored 12 points to lead Parkwood.
