By now, every coach in the Coastal 3A Conference knows of Havelock’s Bowman brothers. But stopping sophomore Kyran and junior Micheal is no easy task.

White Oak couldn’t do it in the tournament semifinals on Wednesday night, and in the end, that meant a trip home after a 69-62 loss.

“I think Havelock’s penetrators, mainly the Bowman brothers, just finished around the rim,” White Oak coach Chris Grimes said. “It was mainly drives to the basket. They were getting great looks from a short distance.

“Kyran’s a special player. He made a lot of contested shots in the second half at critical moments.”

Kyran Bowman led the Rams with 39 points. Brother Micheal added 15.

“The Bowman brothers, even though they missed a couple of free throws there in the fourth quarter, it’s just tough to deal with them,” Havelock coach Bill Fryczynski said.

White Oak (14-11) tied the game at 49 with 6:29 left on Kendall White’s drive to the basket. Micheal Bowman answered with a bucket, sparking a 5-0 spurt to give the Rams (14-6) the lead. Kyran Bowman then scored nine points in the final 3:34 keep the Vikings at bay the rest of the way.
