    Gonna b long year for Page

    Freddy still da best coach around.

  • Wow! said,

    GDS Game! Wow! HPCA crowd not happy with coaching! If I was Bam for HPCA I’d be heading back home because his guards don’t want to give him ball – they stand out top and dribble. You don’t lose that game without big man touching ball at end of game. HPCA takes timeout and draws up a play ….LOL! They dribble out front for 14 seconds and throw up a prayer at end. SMH
    Great atmosphere and great idea to move it to a bigger facility- packed house! Will GDS move their game when they play again??

    Smith Boys 71 Southeast 64
    Smith girls 54 Southeast 50

  • Defense wins championships said,

    HPC missed too many 3 point shots and not enough dribble drive. GDS played Bam in the front and back with no room to breath. GDS defensively is in a universe by themselves. GDS wins on defense year after year. John Newman was the difference tonight for GDS.

  • GREAT GAME said,

    HPCA held only two leads. Early 4-2 then didn’t take the lead until 57-56 under 2 mins to play. GDS controlled the game and had leads of 10 twice in second. Two silly turnovers and a missed front in of a one and one allowed HPCA to rally. Bam is fantastic but besides transition buckets as a point forward, and offensive put backs he was doubled so he could never make any true offensive moves with his back to be ball.

    GDS played disciplined and tough on defense. Freddie is Freddie. JP and Newman were spectacular and didn’t back down.

    Btw Bam’s scored the first points of the night with a unbelievable one hand follow up dunk that brought the house down. It was unreal!

    Fantastic Game! Fantastic atmosphere!

  • @ Defense wins championships said,

    If Freddie had the HPCA team they would win National Championship! Graves for HPCA is not an ACC guard . Its a shame to see all that talent go to waste. Bam is a man. He had 3 and 4 guys hanging on him all night- but still had plenty opportunities to get the ball and they didn’t give it to him. They have couple other guards that are better and should have the ball.

  • Defense said,

    Jeff Smith is a defensive guru

  • Box Score said,

    Does anyone have box score on HP and GDS game? Id like to know what GDS shot from floor. They didn’t miss many – I say at least 70% or better.

  • ORYA said,

    NWG could have beat Ragsdale by 70 tonight..Ragsdale kept their starters in the whole game while NWG substituted freely

  • Hpccc said,

    High Point Christian Community College. We have to do better. I think we over recruit. Tell some of these guys to stay in public school or go to Shining Light Academy.

  • The Gold Standard GDS said,

    Bam did what I expected him to do. He always had a guy in front and back of him with no direct path to the lane or ability to turn the corner on ball side. The players that should be looking at themselves in the mirror today are the other guys on the perimeter. I thought Jaylen played a great game and a good game from the one kid that keep getting dunks off the baseline cut. But the other guards played terrible. It’s easy to say these guys just missed shots but it’s interesting how it always happens when these type of players play against a Freddie Johnson team and to his credit a Jeff Smith defense. Many of the guards on HPC will score 20 pts in AAU when the defense is standing straight up but it’s a different ball game when you play GDS. Several of those HPC guards are going to have to deal with a tough reality when they get to college. The bottomline is that last night was not a coaching issue with HPC. It was a player issue. Those guards must be able to hit those shots under the lights of a big stage. These guys thought they were going to stream roll GDS but here is a special note – GDS has seen and beat teams much better than this HPC team in the past. WES once had Theo Pinson, Montay Brandon and Harry Giles with others on the same team and very good teams even afterwards. GDS is the gold standard regardless of whether you beat them or not. They will not beat themselves.

  • Andy Durham said,

    It sounds like it was a good ball game by reading the recaps from Wyatt Smith here at the site and by Joe Sirera at the News and Record…

    Sounds like a real big game from John Newman, who also played very well at the Haeco Tournament…

    Good game and Coach Clifford at HPCA stepped up and took this one and he had this as one of his post-game comments:

    “Our main story of the night was guarding the basketball,” Clifford said. “That’s been a hallmark of ours for years, and I didn’t have my team prepared defensively the way I expected to. I told them, ‘I’ll take this one,’ because there were things I could’ve prepared them for and I didn’t.”

    The defense from Greensboro Day School will always be a trademark/hallmark….60-59 sounds like just where they would want that score to be, in the low 60’s or 50’s….

  • Pirate said,

    Wish Ty and Jalen still at Page playing with DO!

    Ty gonna be fine. Excellent player. Will do well at BC. Wish nothing but the best for him and JS!

  • Gfan said,

    Must admit Overton has a ton of talent and is a real athlete. Looks like the student section and tight defense may have gotten to him a little bit during this game. Bruce played him very well. It is a tough setting with the fans so close to the court although seemed like the student section was a little quiet until the end.

    When Overton went out with the T the air kind of went out of the sails of the Pirate Ship and it sank.

    Whirlies are looking good this year if they can keep folks healthy.
