January 10, 2011

North Kingstown's Rob Hazard hit a 3-pointer from the top of the key with 10:48 left in the first half, giving him 1,000 career points and NK put the game away when it outscored Mount Pleasant 26-5 over the final 7 minutes, 30 seconts in the Skippers' 62-42 win Monday night.
Hazard came into the game with 995 career points and scored his first two on on a driving layup 3:23 into the game. When hit hit his historic 3-pointer, North called a timeout and Hazard and the Skippers briefly celebrated before getting back to work.

But from there on, it was all NK. The Skippers regained the lead with 7:30 left when Derryck Kilgore was fouled and hit both shots of his one-and-one.
The Skippers opened up a double-digit lead with 3:15 left on a layup by Evan Scott.
