from Kwe Parker(Wesleyan) today on Twitter:”Broke my foot out for 2 months”…..
Two free throws by Brandon Childress end it and Wesleyan Christian Academy tops Greensboro Day School 52-50 in four OT’s….
The game was tied 48-48 at the end of regulation and then both teams two points each in the first overtime and then there was no scoring whatsoever until with just three seconds left in the 4th Overtime and that is when Childress connected on the two free tosses….
52-50 was your final and WES led 15-14 at the end of the first quarter and then WES goes up 32-25 at the half, but the GDS Bengals came out red-hot to start the second half and they not only tie the score up, they take the lead in the game, but WES moves back in front 39-38 after three quarters of play….Then we saw the 48-48 final at the end of 32 minutes and then it was time to play four extra periods….48 minutes this evening and here’s how the scoring went and Kwe Parker did not see any action at all for WES tonight, as he was down with what looks to be a possible hairline fracture in his foot….Will Dillard saw very limited action for Greensboro Day, as he was spending long sessions with the Bengals’ trainer to kick a cramp….That cramp was killing Will..
Back to scoring:
Winning Wesleyan was led by Harry Giles with 24 points…Brandon Childress added 10 points and those game-winning free throws, Michael Buckland had 8 points, Jalen Johnson had 6 and TJ Jackson had 4 for the Trojans…Nate Blakeney got the start in the place of Kwe Parker…
Greensboro Day School scoring….Big night for Trevor Mayo with 17 points and much of the night Mayo was assigned with guarding Harry Giles…Peter Agba added 12 for GDS, Jordan Perkins had 6, Darius Moore had 4, John Newman had 3, JP Moorman and Marquelle McIntyre with 2 a-piece and Will Dillard with 1 point….Moore and Dillard were held well their average, but Dillard had that cramp to deal with….Jordan Perkins did a good job coming in off of the bench for the Bengals…
It might just be me, but I can see Harry Giles being a dominant factor among the high school teams down deep in the post…It seemed like tonight and again maybe it is just me, but Giles was playing more like he was a guard and with his size he seems better suited to dominate down by the bucket, but basketball has changed and now the big men are becoming ball handlers and work in a similar fashion to how the guards work and play, but with Giles, I don’t how he can be stopped 2-3 from the rim….He might be working on a few things for college and if that is the case, then the future is what you have to prepare for and I am out of touch with what is going on in that regard and the most important thing is to keep playing hard and Giles and his team have been doing that, nice win, but you have to say and must be ready to agree with on this one, “It Took A While”……
GDS now(27-2) and WES is (25-4)….
The girls final was GDS over WES 49-29 and Tamera Thorpe had an unreal game for the Bengals….She had 26 points and hit something like 10 free throws and there wasn’t much that Thorpe was not doing right tonight…Gloria Smith-Bunch pumped in 9 points for the Bengals….
