Tuesday evening Station Camp and Mt. Juliet met in the gym of Wilson Central to decide the 9-AAA District Tournament Champion.  After 32 minutes of basketball, Mt. Juliet is that champion for the third straight season.

Here are five themes that emerged in the contest.

Station Camp defended the interior wonderfully.

Cameron Gerlach helped with a shot-block early in the third quarter.  Much of the Golden Bear offensive struggles in the first half can be attributed to Station Camp's post defense. 

Mt. Juliet's players have no ego.

During the tougher stretches of the game, Mt. Juliet still crisply passed the ball around the gym.  Shooting becomes immeasurably easier when a pass hits you before the defender arrives.  The Golden Bears are an unselfish team and the benefits are tremendous.

Gerlach is an innovator.

Cameron Gerlach (Station Camp) is one of the best big man passers in the state.  Because he is known to be a willing passer the Golden Bears bit hard on a pump faked pass that Gerlach concocted.  With the defense out of position he finished a high-effort and-1 on the low blocks.  Gerlach possesses a soft touch around the rim and ability to step out a touch.
