On Tuesday night, the Western Mountain Athletic Conference tournament had two quarter-final games with Reynolds High School taking on Erwin High School and Tuscola High School taking on Asheville High School with games being held at Erwin High School.
In the first match-up, Reynolds High School was paced by 2018 unsigned point guard Isaiah Pruett who finished with 29 points and surpassed the 1,000 career point mark in the win. The Rockets also had big games from 2019 guard Jalen Crowder (9 points) and 2018 F Jace Dover (14 points) in the win. The Rockets also got 11 points from Eli Hembree to advance to the semi-finals of the WMAC tournament. The Rockets have already y guaranteed a spot in the NCHSAA playoffs with their finish in the conference. Erwin is likely done for the season finishing with a 10-13 record overall. The Warriors were led by Jacob Silver with 12 points and Tristian Brank who scored 20.
Back to Pruett, he has been scoring at this pace all season and has night in and night out gave his team all they can ask for. He is a really good floor leader and can attack off the dribble causing defenses to pursue him and in return find the open man for easy scores. He has been getting some college interest and would fill in at a Division II school very well. His size is the only thing that will keep coaches from calling, but his heart and skill with a basketball will have them calling eventually.
Tuscola High School took the final game of the night against Asheville High School with 2018 guard Lane Kervin scoring 19 points and 2019 F Landon Henley going for 18 points and 14 rebounds, another double-double for the big man. 2020 guard Max Rogers had 16 points. Rogers is proving himself as being one of the best 2020 prospects in the area. He is a skilled guard and is a really good shooter coming off screens and with the set shot.
