Adding An Extra Quarter
Brunswick County middle school basketball games will probably run a
little bit longer this season than they did in 1991 .
Games ?his year will feature an extra period ? a "fifth" quarter? tie
signed to give more youngsters a
chance to compete.
The extra quarter will be played
prior to the regulation game, and the
scores will be erased after the "fifth"
quarter is finished.
Boys and girls who start the regu
lar game won't be allowed to play in
the extra quarter, meaning the kids
who usually sit on the bench will get
"I think it's great," said Wac
camaw School Coach Terry Chestnutt. He sees the extra period as a way of
giving game experience to kids who practice hard all week but don't get to
play every game.
Brunswick County Schools Athlctic Director Nelson Best introduced
the idea to the local schools after hearing about its use elsewhere in the
Greensboro City and Cumberland County schools and school systems
in western North Carolina use the "fifth" quarter.
"We wanted something that would give these kids time to play," Best
said. "They tell me it's been working beautifully where they have used it."
Best said some young athletes who may not be very good when they
are in middle school can develop into outstanding athletes in high school if
they slay interested in sports.
The program should help keep so-called "late bloomers" interested in
athletics, which can only help the high school programs. The extra period
will be used in boys' and girls' games.
By the way, the middle school teams open conference play next
Thursday, Jan. 9. All games will start at 5 p.m.
Shallottc, Waccamaw, South Brunswick and Lcland schools arc sched
uled to play each other three times during the season.
Shallotte Middle is hosting the conference tournament this year, which
will be played at West Brunswick High School.
Scorps Hear McGregor
The North Brunswick Scorpion basketball team heard an important
message from Gil McGregor at a banquet held in conjunction with the re
cent UCB Holiday Classic in Wilmington.
McGregor was an All-Amcrican at Wake Forest University and now
works with the Charlotte Hornets organization, according to North
Brunswick Coach Cliff Gibson.
"He had a lot of good things to say to the kids, and he talked basically
about their education," Gibson said.
"He said if you put 24,000 high school athletes in a coliseum, oniy 2
percent would ever play any pro ball. So he was really emphasizing getting
Gibson said the former college basketball great also discouraged drug
use and dropping out of school.
The North coach is a firm believer in blending academics and athletics
to form a well-rounded person.
It's probably not just a coincidence then that Dwain Waddcll, the
Scorps' leading scorer so far this season, is academically at the lop of his se
