Aycock Middle School boys 63
Mendenhall Middle 60 OT
*****Another Middle School game in the Top Ten finishes of the week, with Aycock on top 57-54, with just five seconds remaining and Mendenhall has the ball and has to go the length of the court and they do and just inside halfcourt, just before the horn sounds, Ty Graves lets go with a bomb from the right sideline with his opposite hand, his left hand, since the right hand has been broken and it is his first game back after the injury, and guess what????? The shot goes in from about thirty feet out and we are going into overtime…..
One heck of a game again, and the Aycock Lions are persistant and they fight hard and then pull out a very tough game on the road at Mendenhall in OT, with the Lions taking the HUGE Victory, 63-60……This makes Aycock and Kiser Co-Champs for the season and the season series’ were wild an crazy….Aycock won at Kiser and Kiser won at Aycock, and on it went….
For today, for Aycock, the MVP would have to be #15 Cedric Morgan…..He had 23 points and probably 12-15 rebounds…..Breyon Cuthrell had another outstanding game for the Lions, as he finished with 17 big points…..Tyler Thompson added 11 for the Lions and almost all of his scoring came from the foul line…..JP Moorman chipped in 10 points and little #3 Ty, had himself a very solid game at point guard and he will be the future of small PG’s in this city……If he doesn’t grow any more, Muggsy Bouges may take him to the Big Times….
For Mendenhall, it was Graves, Eaves, Paraldo and Edwards…..Graves knocked down 18 points, including the shot that sent the game in OT, Anthony Eaves had a very impressive 16 points, Chandler Paraldo pumped in 11 points and Tobias Edwards added 9 for the Mustangs…..*****
