A historic win for Cleveland over Smithfield-Selma’s boys

No. 12 seed Cleveland was playing in the state boys’ basketball playoffs for the first time, hosting No. 21 seed, county and new Two Rivers Conference rival Smithfield-Selma in their fourth meeting this season. It was believed to be the first time two Johnston County schools had ever faced off in a state boys’ basketball playoff game. Cleveland is in its fourth year as a school and SSS hadn’t been in the tournament since 2005. Their first three meetings had all been determined in the final minute, but this one wasn’t close. Bobby Stenborg finished with 24 points and eight rebounds as the Rams dominated from start to finish, rolling to a 60-37 victory over the tired Spartans.
