from Friday, December 30, 2022:
Jaydon Young scored 20 points and had a team-best six rebounds to lead Greensboro Day School (NC) to a 46-36 win over AC Flora (SC) to claim fifth place in the American bracket.
The Bengals only trailed on the first basket of the game and used a strong effort from Young to gradually pull away. They led by as many as 16 points and never saw the lead dip below seven points after leading 23-13 at the half.
Greensboro Day shot 43.2% and held the Falcons to just 34.1% from the field.
The Bengals finished second in the American bracket in 2019 but this is the third time in four trips to the Classic that they came away with two wins. AC Flora was playing in the Classic for the fourth time but it’s the first time since 2016 when they went winless.
Christopher Parker led AC Flora with 14 points and eight rebounds.
