Flyin to the Hoop Day One

I had the opportunity to poke my head into some of the day-one action at the Flying to the Hoop Tournament in Kettering. By the time I got there, Columbus' Marion-Franklin had already notched a 83-75 victory over Georgia's Centennial. In that game, Dejuan McGaughy's 22 points was the difference in the game. Elijah Macon had a big game with a double double of 15 points and 12 rebounds. Centennial's Devonte White dropped a game-high 28 points to pace the Knights. Game two of the day featured a great match-up between Garfield Heights and Cincinnati Winton Woods. Despite leading for much of the game, late game turnovers by Garfield Heights resulted in overtime (65-65). Auburn-bound Allen Payne was forced to the bench with foul trouble, but re-entered the game in enough time to hit a couple of key shots and to finish with 18 points. Dominique Brown was the man for the Warriors as he dropped a team-high 23 points and led his team to a 72-70 win. Trey Lewis was responsible for a game-high 25 points. I plan to spend all day at the tournament on Monday so come back for my take on the action.

  1. Brandon Knight had a monster game with a game-high 39 points. James Bell was the real deal as he led his squad over Huber Heights Wayne.
