Chapel Hill is good.

Northern Vance coach Randolph Crews doesn’t think the Tigers were good enough to steamroll the Vikings by 74 points as they did Wednesday night.

“We let that Webb game hang over us,” said Crews. “Emotionally we weren’t in it. I’m very disappointed as a coach, as a Viking. I’m from here, I graduated from here. I’m just disappointed with our effort.”

Chapel Hill (20-1, 7-0 Carolina Conference) had six players in double figure scoring, led 51-16 at halftime and 72-19 entering the fourth quarter before claiming a 101-27 win.

It was the first 100-point outing for the Tigers this season and their second time reaching 90.

“They’re good, they’re real deep, well-coached,” said Crews. “I think they are state championship good.”

Sophomore Raziyah Farrington led Chapel Hill with 20 points. The Tigers’ top six scorers this season will all be back next year.

Chapel Hill scored a number of baskets in transition and played up-tempo from start to finish, removing all of its starters with about four minutes to play.

“You make a shot — you don’t get (back on defense), it’s a layup,” said Crews. “They just execute everything well.”
