Cedar Ridge women’s basketball guard Amiyah Ware made more history in the Red Wolves regular season finale. On Wednesday night, Ware scored 51 points as the Red Wolves defeated Durham School of the Arts 65-57 at Sykes Gymnasium. It came just five days after Ware scored 54 points against Western Alamance, breaking the Orange County record which had stood since 1978. Ware is the first player to ever score 50 points in a game twice in a season in Orange County history. She did it in the span of three games. Ware scored all but one of the Red Wolves points in the second half as Cedar Ridge earned its fourth win of the year. Ware has 12 20-point games this season ever since she made her debut in a Red Wolves uniform against Voyager Academy in December. Ware had her second 50-point game just hours removed from LeBron James setting the all-time NBA scoring record against Oklahoma City in Los Angeles. While she sometimes looks up to James, Ware is a big Jayson Tatum fan. Cedar Ridge will start play in the Central Carolina Conference Tournament on Monday night against an opponent to be determined. There’s a chance Ware could face Western Alamance in the opening round, where Ware broke the county record last Friday.
