|Austin Grimes- Back to back great nights|
- Aiken 67 Shroder 47: Aiken was coasting with a ten point lead through the first three quarters, thanks to sophomore Austin Grimes 19 points (and at least 10 rebounds), then Willy Moore started hitting shots. Willy scored 11 of his 16 in the 4th and showed the talent that should be on display throughout the year and busting this game wide open. Tyonte Robertson looked much better on both ends in his second game, he really cut down on the TO's, and finished with a solid 12 points. Femi Thompson also chipped in 13 for Aiken. The only productive played for Shroder was Jalen Billups who had 10 big points inside and was very active on the glass on both ends. It was nice to see Billups play with that kind of effort, if keeps it up expect Shroder to stay relevant and for Billups to end up playing D1 ball next year. Shroder also got 9 points from Trey Dees, but Dees was largely infective due to too many turnovers. This was a big win for Aiken, they proved that last night was not a real assessment of where they are at. If Aiken can match tonight's performance on a consistent basis they will be a team to watch.
Jalen Billups 19 weren't enough to keep
Shroder in the game tonight against Aiken
- Taft 90 West High 58: Taft used their balanced scoring attack to destroy The Mustangs. Taft showed just how dominant they will be when their big men are able to stay out of foul trouble. From all accounts the second half became a dunk fest for The Senators. Dwayne Stanford scored 19 and Orlando Berry Jr had 18.
- North College Hill 72 Lockland 64: Dontonio Wingfield Jr. scored 13 in his Lockland debut but it wasn't enough as NCH got the victory on their home floor.
- Woodward 64 Hughes 54: Mark Durrgan had a big night shooting the basketball for Woodward and Trent Donald followed up last night's performance with another solid outing. Donald is really becoming a force on offense, something he showed glimpses of last year. He looks to be a guy that will be productive all season long.
Check back in tomorrow for a look at the top performers from this weekend!
