BBC roundup: Kennard lights up record 52 points

bgame03Senior standout Luke Kennard scored 52 points to set the Beach Ball Classic’s all-time single game scoring record and lead Franklin (OH) to a 96-73 victory over Mullins (SC) at the Myrtle Beach (SC) Convention Center.

Franklin (6-0) trailed briefly in the first half but took the lead for good on an Austin Doliboa layup with 2:59 to play in the opening half.  The Wildcats, which led 44-38 at halftime, opened the second half with a 20-6 run that put an end to any question as to which team would advance to the quarterfinal round.  The lone questions remaining was if Kennard, who has signed with Duke University, would score enough to unseat Mike Bibby as the Beach Ball Classic’s all-time single game scoring leader.

Kennard, who scored three points shy of Bibby’s record of 48 against Mullins in the first game of the 2013 BBC event, broke the record with a pair of free throws with 1:56 to play.  Before Coach Brian Bales could remove Kennard from the game, he connected on a 3-point basket to notch his 52nd point with 1:38 to play.  Bibby, who set the record while a senior at Shadow Mountain High School (Phoenix, AZ) against Eau Clair (SC) in the 1995 Beach Ball Classic, is back at the BBC this year as teh head coach of his alma mater.

While Kennard led Franklin, Matt Thompson was pretty impressive as he connected on 7-of-9 from the field, including 6-of-8 from behind the 3-point arc, for 22 points.  Kennard also added a game-high 15 rebounds.

Mullins (4-6) was paced by Jalek Felton’s 29 points.  Javarius Smith, who connected on 7-of-11 from the field, added 20 points for the Auctioneers.

Hough 54, Northland 52 – Hough (NC) defeated Northland (OH) 54-52 to advance to the quarterfinal round of the 2014 Beach Ball Classic at the Myrtle Beach (SC) Convention Center.

Hough (9-1; Cornelius, NC) trailed by as many as nine points in the first half before closing the half with a 13-0 run to take the lead into halftime. Northland (3-2; Columbus, OH) held the lead for much of the opening 16-minute period and built a 27-18 advantage on a jumper by DezJuan Wright with 4:35 on the clock. Hough then began a full-court press defense that turned the tempo of the game in the Huskies favor. Luke May scored six points during the 13-0 run by Hough that closed the half and gave the Huskies a 31-27 lead at halftime.

The second half saw almost a mirror image of the completion of the opening half as Hough this time built the nine-point lead only to see it slip away. Trailing 49-40 with 5:46 remaining in regulation, Northland went on a 12-3 run that tied the game at 52-52 with 52 seconds remaining. During the run, Seth Towns tallied seven points and Doug Taylor tied the game with a pair of free throws.

Hough passed the ball around, taking time off of the clock, before taking a timeout with 35 seconds to play. A tough Northland defense forced another timeout by the Huskies with 19 seconds to play. As the clock counted down toward the end of regulation Maye drove the lane and was fouled by Towns with five seconds on the clock. Maye connected on both free throws to give the Huskies a 54-52 lead. Following a Northland timeout, the Vikings’ Wright turned the ball over with less than one second on the clock to end the game.

Maye, who has committed to the University of North Carolina, led Hough with 20 points and 12 rebounds. Northland was led by Towns’ 17 points.

 

Spring Valley 65, East Cartret 62 – Spring Valley (SC) held off East Carteret (NC) for a 65-62 opening round game win in the 2014 Beach Ball Classic at the Myrtle Beach (SC) Convention Center.

Spring Valley (5-5; Columbia, SC) led by as many as 13 points before East Carteret (7-1; Beaufort, NC) stormed back to tie the game at 60-60 with just 1:08 remaining in regulation. Trailing 48-36 with 9:01 to play, East Carteret knotted the score at 53-53 with 5:00 to play on a 3-pointer by Jacque Brown. Spring Valley regained the lead and took a 60-55 advantage on PJ Dozier’s old fashioned three-point play with 1:59 on the clock.

A 3-point basket by Trevor Willis and a pair of free throws by Ty Simmons would again tie the game at 60-60 with just 1:08 to play in regulation. Dozier again gave the Vikings the lead on an offensive rebound and tip-in 17 seconds later. Dozier then connected on a pair of free throws with 27 seconds to play to push the Spring Valley lead to four at 64-60. East Carteret’s Brown connected on a short jumper in the lane to again close the gap to two points. Dozier then missed on three straight free throws before hitting one with eight seconds to play to give the Vikings a 65-62 cushion. Brown’s off-balanced 3-point attempt at the buzzer rimmed out to end the game.
