That’sfor you basketball fans. Washington came into the game averaging 8.1 ppg this season and left tonight with 17 points and a victory. Washington is a new name for me here at Prep Hoops I will have to admit. Washington a long and rangy guard came up big time after time tonight with his timely shooting and decision making.
Junior Steps Up
was all over the floor tonight with his play. Horace really used the bounce pass to perfection all night long finding teammates in transition. Jacques was taking charges, finishing on contact, hitting turnaround jumpers and just bring TOUGHNESS to the floor for the Bruins. Horace finished the game with 13 points.
Sharks Future is Bright
, , and all juniors will be back next season for the Landsharks. Stevens a wing player finished with 7 points while Rivers a crafty point guard added 11 points. Makhi was able to penetrate-kick while getting the ball into the paint and really plays the game with a pass first mindset from the backcourt.
Coleman a rugged undersized post player and Regan bring great complimentary roles to the roster. Regan can knockdown shots on the perimeter and Coleman brings toughness down while battling inside the paint. Both of these players play on the Grassroots Circuit with Lowcountry Storm.
The Bruins were able to advance despite having a quiet night from All-State Selection. Simpson who will attend Link Prep (POSTGRAD) next season in Branson, MO. Jordan finished the night with 5 points in the win.
The Landsharks finish the season at (20-7) under Head Coach Quinton Hollis. The Bruins will now prepare for the Blue Ridge Fighting Tigers in the Class 3A State Championship Game in Aiken.
