DURHAM - The Middle Creek boys’ basketball team had dodged season-ending bullet after bullet on Wednesday night, but host Jordan evenutally made the Mustangs pay.
After putting itself into position to put away visiting Middle Creek in regulation and the first of two overtimes, Jordan finally pulled out a 56-48 win in the second round of the playoffs.
