General News for January 2016

As the regular season gets closer and closer to completion, we want to get out to as many big match-ups as possible. We spent Saturday bouncing around Atlanta and caught two important games. Here are six takeaways on a doubleheader Saturday. We saw Sandy Creek defeat Fayette County 76-64 and Pebblebrook beat Langston Hughes 72-48.

Brookwood 62, No. 8 Shiloh 59: Just days after rebounding with a 74-44 drilling of No. 9 Dacula, Shiloh was upended for the third time in region play, this time by the Broncos and in the process, potentially falling out of the top ten. Micah Kinsey won the point guard battle with six points, 12 assists, nine steals and six rebounds. Bubba Parham led Brookwood with 18 points.

Another week, another round of invites to the Georgia Elite Preview. We look forward to having the best of the best in the Peach State at Suwanee Sports Academy in Gwinnett County on March 12, 2016. 

Who earned their spot in the invite-only camp this week? These guys.

4A: No. 3 St. Pius (18-3, 12-2) at No. 2 Lithonia (17-4, 14-1)

The Golden Lions survived Senior Night on Tuesday, using a Sam Petry three at the end of regulation to send the game to overtime before Christian Merrill sank two free throws to beat Stone Mountain, 60-59. No. 3 St. Pius will have its hands full again with Region 6 leader No. 2 Lithonia, the Bulldogs beating the Golden Lions back on Dec. 12, 55-44 at the X-Dome. In that game 6-foot-7 senior Jacara Cross led the Bulldogs with 18 points and 11 rebounds. Tyheem Freeman added 18 points of his own and UT-Chattanooga-commit Rodney Chatman finished with nine points, six rebounds and nine assists. For St. Pius to continue its push towards a No. 1 seed heading into the postseason, 6-foot-6 senior Kerney Lane will need a big game. The lefty averages over 18 points and 7.0 rebounds per game to pace Coach Aaron Parr’s team. He along with 6-foot-7 Jakob Spitzer will need to hold their own against Cross and Tyleen Patterson inside.

6A: Langston Hughes (11-9, 4-6) at Campbell (15-5, 6-4)

Region 3 has turned out to be as wild as everyone expected. The Spartans scored the win of the year in the region, rallying to beat No. 1 Westlake 81-80 on Tuesday. Campbell is now tied for third-place in the region with Douglas County, who they beat last Tuesday 72-61. Senior point guard Mike Olmert went off vs. the Lions. He finished with 25 points, eight rebounds and 15 assists. Running mate Laz Walker chipped in 24 to help lead the charge. Walker averages 19 points and 6.0 rebounds while Olmert tallies 13.1 points, 3.7 rebounds and 8.6 assists. Langston Hughes is on the outside looking in right now, sitting at 4-6 in the region tied for fifth-place. Unlike the rest of the region, Coach Rory Welsh prefers to control tempo, run their sets and play hard-nosed defense. A pair of 6-foot-4 junior guards run the show for the Panthers. Derrick Cook has more than doubled his scoring average from a year ago and now leads the team with 16.4 points and 5.3 rebounds per game. Khalil Cuffee has seen his scoring average dip by three points, but still posts 15.6 points a night. Cuffee is a sturdy guard with a reliable three-pointer. By this time next year, he should be deciding upon which D-I school to attend.

4A: Pickens (5-15, 3-7) at Southeast Whitfield (8-13, 5-6)

Straying off the beaten path, north Georgia is home to one of the state’s most prolific scorers. Coaches Brad Steinhauer and Ben Oliver don’t have the Division-I talent that is scattered amongst the state in the higher classifications, but the two Class AAAA programs have some good old fashion roundball with kids playing for the love of the game. NAIA and D-II schools should have their eyes on Southeast Whitfield’s Ty Pendley.  The 5-foot-10 senior is leading the state in scoring at 27.8 points per game while adding 3.0 assists and 6.1 rebounds. On Tuesday the sharpshooter exploded for 43 points against Ridgeland. Pendley is more than just a one-dimensional marksman. He has taken 207 free throws this year, averaging just under 10 per game and sinks them at a 90 percent clip. Pickens counters with a 5-foot-11 senior guard of its own, Holden Roop. He leads the Dragons in scoring with 15 points per game and 3.4 assists.

5A: No. 1 Miller Grove (19-2, 9-0) at No. 9 Southwest DeKalb (18-3, 8-1)

No. 1 Miller Grove looks to put the finishing touches on an undefeated region record by knocking off rival No. 9 Southwest DeKalb, who the Wolverines pulled away from late for a 76-69 win at home on Dec. 15. Alterique Gilbert, the McDonalds All-American and UConn signee, leads the Miller Grove attack averaging 23 points, 4.1 rebounds, 7 assists and 4.5 steals. He is flanked by Colin Young, ETSU-decommit Aaron Augustin and both Tae Hardy and Joshua Jackmon in the backcourt. Coach Sharman White has frontcourt stalwarts as well in Raylon Richardson and Aidan Saunder. Gilbert finished with 24 points, 8 rebounds and 5 assists while Colin Young chipped in 19 points to dispatch of the Panthers in their first meeting. Augustin totaled 11 points and 12 assists. Three seniors lead Southwest DeKalb in scoring. Keith Gilmore (16.3 ppg, 6.8 rpg), Nathaniel Ambersley (13.4 ppg, 4.6 apg) and 6-foot-6, 245-pound TiQuan Lewis (12.1 ppg, 7 rpg) are Coach Eugene Brown’s main options. The trio combined for 45 points in their loss at Miller Grove, led by Lewis’ 19 points and 12 rebounds. The Panthers’ third option is 5-foot-7 sparkplug Darius Hogan. The junior averages 9.6 points per game and netted 12 against the Wolverines.

4A: No. 2 Lithonia (15-4, 12-1) at No. 4 Grady (18-2, 12-1)

First-place in Region 6 is on the line in this top five battle. On Dec. 11, the Knights handed the Bulldogs a 62-52 loss. Bucknell-commit Avi Toomer went for 16 points and 6 rebounds while point guard Christian Bryant scored a team-high 19 points and DJ Brittian added 10. Toomer is averaging over 24 points and 9 rebounds per contest, but Bryant, a 5-foot-9 senior, has proven to be able to carry the load at times, scoring 11 points a night. In their first meeting, Grady’s aggressive guard play made the bigger Bulldogs look slow. Bryant, Toomer and Brittian combined for 10 steals. Lithonia received 15 points apiece from Tyleen Patterson and Tyheem Freeman. Patterson along with Jacara Cross (14 points, 7 rebounds) were at times unstoppable inside, but the Knights were able to control tempo and keep it out of their hands when they needed to. Lithonia will need keep Grady’s quick guards in front of them and dump it inside every chance it gets if the Bulldogs want to regain control of Region 6.

5A: No. 3 McIntosh (17-2, 12-0) at Stockbridge (11-7, 7-3)

No. 3 McIntosh is the odds on favorite to roll to another undefeated record in Region 4. The Chiefs use a balanced attack spearheaded by the school’s all-time leading scorer, Furman signee Jordan Lyons. The sweet-shooting guard pours in a team-high 18.9 points per game but receives help from all over the floor. Inside is Wofford signee Dishon Lowery, possibly the state’s best rebounder, averaging 12.5 boards to go with his 11.9 points and 2.8 blocks. Will Washington is among the state’s best unsigned players thanks to his rare combination of scoring (13.8 ppg) and passing (8.5 apg). Chase Walter rounds out the Chiefs onslaught inside averaging 8.9 points, 8.4 rebounds and 2.2 blocks, but it is Isaac Kellum who brings a new dynamic to the team after sitting out the first 13 games of the year. The 6-foot-4 forward brings athleticism and a defensive mindset to the three position which McIntosh has missed in its two losses. He will be tested early and often as Stockbridge boasts two of the region’s most relied upon scorers. Seniors Jadon Davis and Virgil Fields both flirt with triple-doubles on a nightly basis. Davis pumps in 23.7 points a night while Fields goes for 19.2 points, 13 rebounds and 7 assists. In the Tigers’ latest win, an 81-80 victory over Dutchtown, Fields hit the go-ahead floater with three seconds left. Fields finished with 27 points, 19 rebounds and 7 assists. Davis exploded for 37 points, 9 rebounds and 6 assists.
