HS Basketball Saturday morning rewind

Posted by Andy Durham on December 12, 2009 at 10:20 am under High School | 11 Comments to Read

We had the scoring from last night’s games on our scoreboard and if you have more scores and news, you can still add that today by placing it in the comment box.

Thanks to ADs Jim Clontz from Western Guilford and to Dan Bozarth from Caldwell Academy for the info you sent us last night and to Greensboro Day, along with Ragsdale for getting your scores to us during the course of the evening…..

It was a fun watch at Dudley with the Panthers and the Whirlies and if you didn’t catch all the details, Grimsley had a lead of 52-50 going into the 4th quarter before Dudley with PJ Hairston, Reggie Dillard and freshman Jaquel Richmond locked it down to get the win…..

Dudley out-scored Grimsley 24-5 in the final frame to get the win…..PJ had 30 points and 10 boards and Reggie added 11 points in the Panthers’ win. The Richmond kid is going to be a major player before it is all over and Hairston is much stronger than last year as he now stands at 6’6 222 lbs. and that ought to get you a few extra rebounds and allow him to mix it up on the inside if necessary…..

Reggie Dillard dished out 5 assists and Brennan Wyatt played his usually steady game at the point, but he did experience some foul trouble. Dudley does miss Brandon Pennix to some degree on the inside, but they will be able to eventually compensate for that with help from DJ Alston, Dominique Byrd and Brandon Clyburn. Byrd got off to a great start last night, but got quiet in the second half.

More on last night’s big win for the Eastern Guilford girls from the Burlington Times-News…….

Report received this morning on Northern over Eastern boys from last night:
Northern Guilford 68
Eastern Guilford 65

Northern Guilford boys beat Eastern Guilford boys 68-65. It was a really good game throughout with several lead changes and a wild finish as the EG boys came back from 8 or 9 down in the fourth quarter to pull within 1. Two FTs and a loose ball at the buzzer sealed it for Northern. Jonathan Frye had 24 to lead the Nighthawks. Darius Dawkin had 22 and Brandon Hairston 18 for EG. The next matchup between these wo should be a doozy.

EASTERN GUILFORD 59, NORTHERN GUILFORD 41: At Gibsonville, Miranda Jenkins scored a game-high of 19 points as Eastern Guilford defeated Northern Guilford in a Mid-State 3-A Conference game.

Capricia Smalls recorded 15 points for the Wildcats (4-1, 2-0), and teammate Amirah Jameson added 10 points.

Samantha Coffer and Jessica Johnson scored 15 and 14 points, respectively, for Northern Guilford (5-2).

Boys
HIGH POINT – Benaiah Wise led all scorers with 19 points as the Ragsdale Tigers held on for a 62-50 victory over T. Wingate Andrews on Friday night.

A tight battle throughout, neither team saw its lead swell to double-digits until late in the contest. Despite a pursuing defense, the inside-out combination of Wise and frontcourt teammates Kalik Parker and Devonte Fletcher proved to be the difference.

“We had some guys do a good job of rebounding,” Tigers coach Craig Shoemaker said. “I thought Devonte Fletcher’s play was key.”

Parker and Fletcher complemented Wise’s superb play from the perimeter with a bruising inside game. Parker had 14 points and Fletcher finished with nine.

Andrews cut into a 29-20 halftime lead for the Tigers (2-5) with a solid shooting display in the third quarter. Ragsdale, meanwhile, turned to its point guard to score points until the Raiders’ hot streak subsided. Andrews (2-3) was able to force several Tiger turnovers with an intense full-court press, but Wise penetrated the Raider traps in the second half and helped to maintain his team’s composure down the stretch as Andrews.

Girls….Again with Daniel Kennedy reporting:
HIGH POINT – A slow-developing first half at T. Wingate Andrews on Friday night produced a 17-16 advantage for the Red Raiders. The second half generated a different outcome entirely as the Tigers’ frontcourt took control and Ragsdale cruised to a 45-30 win.

“We did a good job in the first half,” Andrews coach Weaver Walden said. “We played well, executed the zone. The third quarter – that’s where they started to pull away. The lead just kind of got away from us.”

The Tigers thoroughly dominated the boards and matched their scoring output from the first two quarters combined by romping 17-4 in the third period. Ciara Jackson paced the Tigers with 14 points and did a nice job controlling the paint, teaming with Lindsay Lee to thwart Andrews’ comeback attempt. Lee had six points.

    You had the Ragsdale score correct last night: Ragsdale 62 HP Andrews 50
    Ragsdale’s record is now 2 – 5 as they picked up their first victory of the season on Tuesday night by a 66 – 55 score over SE Guilford. Beniah Wise led the Tigers last night with 19 points and Kalik Parker chipped in 14.

    Ragsdale girls improved to 5 -1 with a 45 – 30 win over Andrews. Ragsdale has now won 5 in a row after dropping their season opener to Eastern Guilford. Ciara Jackson led the Lady Tigers with 14 points

  • Andy said,

    Yes I think we had missed that win by the Tigers over Southeast Guilford and went back to get it off of MaxPreps this morning.

    Does anyone know how long Tyquan Roberts will be out? When is he due to return???

  • Observer said,

    Hopefully those post players will compensate on the inside from Dudley because Hairston cant be depended on to post up the majority of the time because they need his shooting stroke from 3. I do agree Dudley will miss Pennix and the AD’s kid for the strong inside game and it seems like there was a lack of leadership heading into the 4th quater but, Dudley did turn it up.

  • Andy said,

    Being stronger will sure help PJ if he does have to post up on occasion, but I don’t think it so much about posting up as it for to be taking the ball to the basket and being in there to battle for the boards and maybe get some second looks and keep some other guys off the boards with some defensive presence in there on the inside…The shot blocking factor by Hairston is zone of it’s own. A very big part of his game……

    This kid is the real deal and he has a very good mind for the game…It’s not just the basics with Hairston, he is breaking the game down as it unfolds and he knows his shot and as the old saying goes, “he has a good idea where that shot is going as soon as it leaves his hand”……

    Good comments and very good subject. How far can PJ take this team(Dudley) on the 4-A level????? His is very mature and I think he can handle it….

  • kh said,

    All can say is wow about “The Dunk” the Richmond kid had last night. Wow what a dunk! I hope someone you tube it!

  • RHS#24 said,

    to answer andy’s question on how long tyquan will be out, he will miss 3 weeks..He will come back the day after the Little Four tournament.

  • Cat said,

    Someone needs to give more coverage to Westchester. Duce, Ike and Cole Morgenstern are youngsters that play very had every night. Because they do not have a big man, Ike and Cole take on the big kids every game are a really tough on D. Add CJ to the team and they will be hard to beat.

    Friday night the numbers were Ike 21, Cole 21 and Duce 20. In addition, Duce blocked a lot of shots including a dunk attempt.

  • OK said,

    Westchester doesn’t really play anyone that is any competition. I wonder how they would hang with the Dudley’s and GDC’s in the basketball world?

  • CAT said,

    Granted, two or three of WCDS’s games have been against poor competition but not all has been. The wins over Wesleyan and Fayettville Academy were good wins. the effort in coming from 16 down against FA was terrific. Point is that, while they play a little out of control they play very, very hard

  • PAGE PIRATES said,

    Our Page girls are really coming together. We went into Western Guilford and beat them pretty handily. We shut their scores completely down. Way to go Pirate Girls!

  • B-ball fan said,

    To bad they couldn’t come together the game before when they went into NWG & got beat by 28 & shut your scorers completely down.
