Arusha Hunter scored 19 of his game-high 23 in the second half and added eight rebounds and three assists. Mekhail Bethea netted 22 points and collected three assists and four steals. Justin Goodson canned four three-pointers and finished with 21 points and four rebounds.

The backcourt tandem of Ryan Jolly and Kalen Williams helped push the Bulls over the top with 19 and 18 points respectively. In the third quarter, Williams knocked in three 3’s to extend the team’s lead. Deon Berrien also chipped in 11 points. 

Brandon Stimpson led the Phoenix with 14 points in the loss. - Garrett Tucker 

Team Forrest ends Georgia Cup season with 15U crown

Two familiar faces in Georgia faced off against one another in the 15U Championship of the Georgia Cup Finals: Team Forrest and Georgia Stars Fowler.

In the second half, Cam Armstrong and Asher McGee came alive for Team Forrest, scoring 12 & 13 second half points respectively. That effort outlasted Barnes and the Stars, winning the game 54-50 for Team Forrest.
