Pedulla Out Lasts MN Chill Frontline in 16U Triller

What a great way to start the day off in Lincoln as Buddy Buckets and MN Chill 16U played an absolute thriller!  Buddy Buckets won in OT 75-73.  Their star 2024 Ciaran Pedulla played up to his last name’s reputation on the PHC.  Pedulla absolutely took over the game in several stretches including multiple deep threes.  He is such a competitive lead guard that has the ability to score with his handles as well, but it was his sharp shooting that he got most of his 25 points on.  Primed to breakout this spring/summer!  He was complimented by Rodney Gray in the backcourt.  Gray made the biggest plays in overtime with a three ball along with a scoop shot to win the game.  He finished with 13 points.  MN Chill 16U has some legit college prospects led by Khalif Bettis.  The 6’4” small forward scored inside and outside all game long.  Strong baseline takes, ran the floor, and showed excellent quickness
