Trinity Barrow – Greenbrier – November, 2019

Greenbrier tipped off a new year of local high school hoops Saturday with an overwhelming 64-8 region win over Apalachee, starting a January through March stretch in which league play, and eventually region tournament and state playoff action (of course along with the public health travails of the day), will define the second half of the season.

Junior Brooklyn Begley scored 15 points on 5 made three pointers to lead the rout, which featured a 45-0 Lady Wolfpack run. Sophomore Trinity Barrow added 12 points and 5 steals, and fellow sophomore Caitlin Staley added 9.

Here are the scoring details from Aquinas’s doubleheader against Savannah Country Day Saturday.

“Sophomore Malik Ferguson picked up a loose ball in the middle of the paint with one second remaining, and right before the fourth quarter buzzer sounded, he released a shot that found its mark to give Grovetown 61-60 win over Evans Friday, a result that threw the top spot in the class 6A, region 5 standings into a three way tie between Grovetown, Evans and Heritage to mark the beginning of the stretch run for the league’s regular season championship. Ferguson’s shot came at the end of a full court dash by Grovetown after head coach Darren Douglas was able to draw up a play during a timeout that was meant to result in a bucket in only six seconds. The play was designed for senior Zach Bell, who eventually fumbled the ball after spinning between defenders at the end of a drive that began near half court after he gathered the ball from freshman Derrion Reid.”

That was Chad Cook’s rundown of the instant classic that these two teams played two weeks ago. That win by Grovetown sets up a must-win scenario for Evans as they look to maintain their footing in the race for a region championship.

Be sure to get your ? ready early because if tonight’s game is as exciting as the last one, you just might forget those jokers altogether!
