*****This was the second time this season that HPCA has gotten the best of HPW….Earlier win by the Cougars over the Trojans at WCA…*****

Unofficial stats:
HPCA scoring….Mitch Oates with 27 led the way, Jordan Weethe had 13 and Aaron Scales had 6….All three of the above had Monster Dunks with Weethe smashing, Scales crashing and Oates dashing on the Dunks….Weethe’s was real strong and Oates and Scales were not far behind….Their teammate, #21 I think it was also had a Thunder Dunk….Montay Brandon had the strongest dunk of the night for Wesleyan and Deng Leek also flushed a few down hard from underneath….

Wesleyan Christian Academy scoring leaders….Montay Brandon with 18…..Jaquel Richmond and Deng Leek had 15 points each for WCA and #12(could not get his name since the book disappeared after the game), but thanks to our readers we now have him and it was Sammy Tyson that had 7 points….Brandon had a big first half and Richmond was very tough for WCA in the second…Leek was steady throughout and he is playing a lot more minutes since coming back after his injury….

Game rewind for HPCA and WCA….1st Q: HPCA 13, WCA 6….Halftime: HPCA 39, WCA 22….3rd Q: HPCA 47, WCA 34….Final:HPCA 68, WCA 58….

I would have to say that Oates and Weethe were playing unreal and Aaron Scales was not far behind and Scales looks a lot like a much larger version of William Graves, back when Wil was with Dudley…..Brandon and Richmond are not far behind Oates and Weethe, just a little bit younger…..

Kind of interesting when you look back at all these kids back in the day when Oates, Weethe and Jon Bethea were at Page and Scales was at Southwest Guilford and for Wesleyan you had Brandon at Northeast, Richmond at Dudley and Cade Isley at Grimsley, all back in the day and it’s really no big deal, just looking back in the day and time moves and we must do the same and move on too……

A lot of fun to make the weather worry-free trip to High Point’s Greene Street Baptist Church on Phillips Avenue to see Oates, Weethe, Bethea, Scales, Richmond, Isley and Brandon…….Plus others too, but I don’t know all of them yet…..Got to speak to coach Brandon Clifford right before the game and he is doing very well with and for his HPCA Cougars……

    #12 for Wesleyan is named Sammy Tyson.

  • Hm said,

    The 2 bigs for HPCA played well inthe second half. Scales dunked on Leek twice and then the Nigerian got one too. Both had some key blocks as well. HPCA controlled the game I think and are just better. The non-Oates and Weethees know their role and play hard. Bigtime atmosphere, it never disappoints out there. Place is small but they pack em in. Wasnt as nuts as Westchester ga,e there but it was almost as packed out. Very neat environment. Has a college feel to it, especialy with the starting lineup announcer for the big games. Was going to watch Page and Dudley, but GCS ruined that. Still was able to see a god game though.

  • just remember said,

    Richmond kid for WCA is going to be the truth in the next
    years to come
