In the Ron Johnson Thanksgiving Tournament host St. Charles East played East Aurora in the 3rd place game on Saturday night.  The two squads played a full out transition game in an up and down contest.  East Aurora won by a final of 74-68.  Here are our 5 Takeaways: East Aurora vs St. Charles East.

 

Got Turnovers?

First thing that stood out about this contest with the number of turnovers.  The two teams combined for 43 turnovers in this game.  That is in a 32 minute game!  It was a fast paced contest with a lot of steals and buckets off turnovers.  I would bet that over half of the total points were the result of turnovers.

 

Jacques Kelly Plays Big

East Aurora 2021 Jacques Kelly is a combo forward that plays much bigger than his height.  He is a big time athlete that plays with a never ending motor.  Finished above the rim on alley-oops and transition dunks.  Quick twitched moves in the paint.  Kelly also rebounded at an insanely high rate on both ends of the floor.  Put his name on the map with 13 points, 12 rebounds, 3 assists, and 3 blocks.
