Orange’s Jarmil Wingate and Aaliyah Harris talk Southern win

Updated: February 17, 2021

Jarmil Wingate had a season-high 12 points to help the Orange women’s basketball team defeat Southern Durham 44-41 at Spartan Gymnasium on Tuesday afternoon. Wingate also assisted on what turned out to be the game-winning three-point play from Erin Jordan-Cornell with 1:27 remaining. Aaliyah Harris scored all eight of her points in the second half as the Lady Panthers came back from 12 down. Wingate and Harris have been teammates for the past five years on travel teams throughout the area. It’s for that reason that Harris and Wingate have been dubbed the Wonder Twins on broadcasts, in honor of the 1980s SuperFriends cartoon superheroes that are relatively obscure. Despite being 5-2, Wingate is second on the team with 5.2 rebounds per contest. Orange clinched a winning season with the victory over the Spartans and remains alive for a state playoff birth. Orange is slated to wrap up the regular season against Northern Durham on Friday afternoon at Panther Gymnasium.
