New Cedar Ridge men’s basketball coach Mike Jones earned his first win as the coach of the Red Wolves on Monday night. Senior guard Colton Taylor scored 16 points as the Red Wolves defeated the Durham School of the Arts 58-50 at Red Wolves Gymnasium. It was a big game for several Cedar Ridge players who competed in their first varsity home games. Sophomore center Luke Orstad had 14 points. Junior Harrison Perel added nine points, all in the second half, including a key 3-pointer that came after the Bulldogs trimmed the Red Wolves’ lead to three points. Cedar Ridge never trailed and led by as many as 13 points. Jonovan Wingate added six points as the Red Wolves won its first game of the season. Last month, Jones was named as the replacement for former head coach Jaison Brooks. Jones is a longtime assistant at East Chapel Hill under veteran head coach Ray Hartsfield, the only varsity men’s coach in school history. Cedar Ridge will return to action next Tuesday with a home game against East Chapel Hill.
