There were three Rockets to reach double figures in scoring in Friday’s win at Fayetteville.

Fayetteville’s junior Zak Smyth shot for 14 points, pulled down nine rebounds, and blocked four shots to aid in the Rocket win.
Fayetteville’s junior postman Luke Wiederhold recorded a double-double with 13 points and 15 rebounds, 11 of them defensive rebounds.
Fayetteville sophomore CJ McCulley contributed with nine points.
The Rockets were back on their home court Jan. 17, playing host to the Lynchburg-Clay Mustangs. The Rockets suffered a 71-60 loss to the Mustangs to drop to a 2-11 overall record on the season.
