The Tennessee Bobcats finished off a very strong showing at the 2016 Atlanta Jam in the champion’s circle with the 17U Gray trophy. The trek to the title game was hard-fought and the hardware was well-earned with a 73-67 win over AC Georgia.
Tyreke Key, an easy all-tournament selection, was terrific all week long and capped off the first three days of the spring NCAA Live Period with a statement 28 points in the title game. Key was one of the best guards in the field and scored all over the floor.
He had help from unsigned guard Seth Battle, who pumped in 17 points in the title game. Cade Crosland added 11 in the victory.
AC Georgia wasn’t going down without a fight. The Atlanta-based squad is balanced and rich with talent. AC was led by Phlandrous Fleming (16 points), Jonathan King (15 points), Jaden Stanley (14 points) and Phil Cirillo (10 points).
