The Person High School men's basketball team needed to win last night to move into fourth place in the Mid-State 2A/3A Conference.
The Rockets (9-13, 7-6) jumped out to a 19-6 lead in the first eight minutes and never looked back, beating McMichael 47-40.
The victory is Person's fourth in its past five games. The Rockets composed their third winning streak of the season by beating the Phoenix (11-11, 7-6).
As a result of moving into fourth place, Person is in good position to host a conference tournament game next Monday. To solidify the four-spot, the Rockets need to beat Northeast Guilford tomorrow night.
Regardless of whether Person hosts or not, they match up against McMichael in Round One.
