Published: Wednesday, December 12, 2012 at 02:00 AM.

White Oak (4-2, 0-1) drew within 37-31 with 2:32 left on a three-point play from Lyric Levester, but the Vikings missed six consecutive shots down the stretch and had two turnovers. Kierra Fleming hit a free throw with 11 seconds left to seal the victory for the Rams, who were just 3 of 14 from the free-throw line.

"That’s not going to get it done," Spear said of the team’s free-throw percentage.

Havelock is next scheduled to play New Bern at 6:30 p.m. Friday at Havelock High.
