Rocklin High vs. Granite Bay was a tight contest during the first half, but the high energy and adjustments made by coach Taylor from Rocklin eventually became too much for the Grizzlies in the 4th quarter as they were routed 79-69. Granite Bay started the game with a bigger lineup compared to the Thunder but was outplayed by a more efficient offense while facing a Rocklin defense that applied immense pressure forcing multiple turnovers for the duration of the game. Here are some players from both sides that had an impact on the game.

Emmanual Akpan; Junior; Rocklin.

Emmanual a 6'4 forward was all over the place tonight, a player with a high motor on both ends of the floor. During his time on the court, he was consistently active on every possession trying to give his team the edge. A nice defender paired with a high motor and an offensive player who is active in space, Akpan could make a decent addition to any ball club on the college level. Especially since he has one more year left to play on a team where he will likely become a starter in the 2020-2021 season.
