Mooresville’s boys basketball team continues to be left holding the short end of the stick.
The Blue Devils remained in search of their first win opposite an I-Meck Conference member following the 97-53 loss to Vance.
The outcome knocked the Devils to 0-10 in league play, which carries the most clout, and 4-16 overall.
Mooresville was handed its seventh straight setback, all during the course of the current 2020 segment of the season’s split-year schedule. It’s the second time this season that the Devils have endured such an extended consecutive-game losing streak.
There is some light shining, however, in the tunnel. Mooresville ended its first such skid in the late stages of 2019 by setting sail on a two-game winning streak that remains its best of the season.
Squaring off against a Vance entry not only residing outright in second-place in the I-Meck but also boasting a No. 8 position in the most recently released N.C. MaxPreps.com 4A boys basketball poll, any hopes of avenging the season’s earlier loss to the Cougars ended early. The Devils faced a 30-11 deficit by the conclusion of the first period and were unable to undo that damage.
No additional individual information was available.
Mooresville headed back into action Tuesday with a trip to take on arch-rival Lake Norman, with results too late to be included in this edition. They then return home for the next-to-the-last time this regular season to entertain Hopewell High.
