BBC Wrapup; Loughlin, Moeller, Franklin advance

BishBishop Loughlin 50, Norcross 46 – Khadeen Carrington tallied a game-high 27 points to lead Bishop Loughlin (NY) to a 50-46 victory over Norcross (GA) in the opening round of the 2013 Beach Ball Classic.

Bishop Loughlin (4-1) never trailed in the contest and built leads as large as 14 points in the second half before having to hold off the Blue Devils (7-4).  Trailing 42-28 with 5:56 to play, Norcross went on a 15-4 run to close the gap to just three points at 46-43 with just 1:45 to play.  During the run, William Gibbons hit a pair of 3-pointers and A.J. Bush capped the run with another trey.

Carrington ended the run with an old-fashioned three-point play with 55 seconds remaining.  Kahleen Pinkett copied that effort with a layup and free throw of his own just seven seconds later to pull Bishop Loughlin back to within three point at 49-46.  Norcross failed to score in the closing seconds to fall into the consolation bracket.

Norcross was paced by Pinkett’s 13 points.

 

Moeller 55, Father Henry Carr 39 – Moeller (OH) controlled the paint in its opening round 55-39 victory over Father Henry Carr (Canada) to advance to the quarterfinal round.  The Crusaders (6-0) outrebounded the smaller Father Henry Carr squad 32-23 and tallied a 30-12 points in the paint advantage.

Moeller scored the game’s first 13 points and built a 14-point advantage at 17-3 on a Nate Fowler layup with 10:13 on the clock.  Father Henry Carr (21-3) refused to roll over and battled back to cut the lead in half at 27-20 by halftime.

The lead would be cut to six points at 32-26 with 12:48 remaining in the second half when Ty Stewart-Nelson’s jumper capped a six point run by Father Henry Carr.  Moeller responded with 9-1 run over the next 3:11 to take a 14-point advantage and went on to build leads as big as 18 points in the final minutes.

Moeller was led by sophomore Nate Fowler’s 19 points and 13 rebounds.  Marcus Bonnick, who connected on 5-of-9 from behind the 3-point arc, paced Father Henry Carr with 15 points.

 

Franklin 71, Mullins 57 – Luke Kennard proved why he is commonly called the top junior in the nation as he poured in 45 points to lead Franklin (OH) into the quarterfinals of the Beach Ball Classic with a 71-57 victory over Mullins (SC).  Kennard, who tied Mike Bibby’s second best Beach Ball Classic effort for the second best single scoring game in tournament history, fell just short of Bibby’s record of 48 when he led his Shadow Mountain (AZ) squad over Eau Claire (SC) on December 30, 1995.

Franklin (7-0) never trailed in the game and built a 21 point lead early in the second half.  Trailing 46-25 with 14:27 remaining in the second half, Mullins’ Alex Brown put the Auctioneers on his back.  Brown scored 17 points, including four 3-point baskets in a 1:20 stretch, during a 21-5 run by Mullins to cut the lead to just five points at 51-46 with 9:24 to play.

During this stretch, Kennard was whistled for three fouls with the final one being his fourth that sent him to the bench with 11:54 remaining.  Following the short jumper by Jalek Felton to cut the lead to five points, Kennard was called back in to duty.  From that point to the end of the game, Kennard played a part in 19 of the 20 points scored by the Wildcats.  He tallied 15 points and had a pair of assists in the final 9:04.

Brown kept Mullins in the game as he finished with a team-high 33 points.  Felton, tabbed as the top freshman in the nation, posted 11 points, six rebounds, seven assists, and six steals

 

Miller Grove 68, Spring Valley 63 – Miller Grove (GA) built a 15-point second half advantage and then had to hold off Spring Valley (SC) for a 68-63 victory to advance to the semifinal round of the consolation bracket.

Spring Valley (2-9), playing without Perry Dozier, Jr., due to an injury, held the advantage in the opening half, building its largest lead at 18-10 with 10:06 on the clock on a layup by Noah Harper.  The Wolverines (10-3) stormed back and took the lead for good on back-to-back dunks by Keith Pickney, the second coming with 5:37 to play in the opening half and giving Miller Grove a 22-20 lead.

Leading by just three at 35-32 at halftime, Miller Grove used a 13-0 run to open a 59-44 cushion with 8:0 to play.During the stretch, Spring Valley had a pair of turnovers and missed all four of its shots from the field.

Miller Grove was apced by Alterique Gilbert’s 23 points and six steals.  Pickney added 18 points for the Wolverines.  Spring Valley was led by a double-double of 18 points and 10 rebounds from Jordan Bruner.
