Here is another installment of “Five Good Guys,” which is a look at five sparkling performances from last weekend around the state.
Leon Perry 6’7″ Confluence Academy: The 2018 forward turned in a huge performance with 38 points and 14 rebounds in a 68-59 victory over Vianney in the championship game of the Flyer Invitational at Lindbergh. The big part about Perry’s day was that he made six 3-pointers in the game. He usually does his damage in the paint, but he stepped outside and knock down perimeter jumpers to rally CPA from a halftime deficit.
Christian Bishop 6’7″ Lee’s Summit West: The Creighton University signee turned in a brilliant effort in a 59-53 victory over CBC in the 810 Varsity Showcase on Saturday night. Bishop accomplished the triple-double with 24 points, 14 rebounds and an impressive 10 blocked shots. The versatile combo forward seemed to be everywhere on the court.
Hayden Sprenkel 6’2″ North County: The 2018 guard scored 29 points and grabbed 10 rebounds to lead the Raiders to a 65-51 victory over Farmington in Mineral Area Activities Association play. It was a huge win for North County in that it was its first victory over Farmington in 14 years.
LaTroy Harper 6’2″ Penney: The athletic 2018 guard got his weekend started by given a verbal commitment to play football at Division II national power Northwest Missouri State. He then went on to dominate the Lawson Tournament in leading Penney to the championship. He scored 29 points in Penney’s victory over Lawson in the championship game and earned Most Valuable Player honors for his efforts.
Cole Kirchner 6’1″ Clark County: The 2018 guard stole the show in the Cardinals’ 73-70 victory over Monroe City in last Friday night’s Clarence Cannon Conference showdown. In a battle between two excellent players in Clark County’s Chandler Bevans and Monroe City’s CE Talton, Kirchner grabbed the spotlight by scoring a career-high 32 points and making six 3-pointers along the way to help Clark County maintain its undefeated record.
