CBHI Roundup: Wilson puts on show for college scouts

cbhi-wilsonA’ja Wilson posted a CresCom Bank Holiday Invitational record 24 rebounds and a game-high 30 points to lead Heathwood Hall (Columbia, SC) to an impressive 72-36 victory over Atlantic (Port Orange, FL).

The game was never in doubt as the Highlanders scored the opening 12 points of the game.  Wilson, who also tallied seven blocked shots, had coaches from the University of North Carolina, the University of South Carolina, and the University of Tennessee in attendance to watch the undecided senior.

Gadsen Lefft, who will play at Kennesaw State next year, had 13 points and seven blocks, while Victoria Dickerson added 14 points for Heathwood Hall.  The Highlanders outrebounded Atlantic 52-18 and dominated in the paint, outscoring the Sharks 44-14 down low.

Atlantic, playing without its best played in Destiny Woodard, was paced by Kari Scantling’s 15 points.

* Tembre Moates connected on a baseline jumper from 12 feet with three seconds remaining to give Greenwood (SC) a 73-71 opening round victory over Scott County (Georgetown, KY).

Greenwood (6-0), which led by as many as 12 points in the first half, saw an aggressive Scott County (2-3) defense and play around the boards bring the Cardinals back.  Scott County outrebounded the Eagles 52-31 and held a 32-17 advantage on second chance points.  Leading the way on the boards was Tereka Guyn’s 23 rebounds, falling just one short of the tournament record set by Heathwood Hall’s A’ja Wilson just one game earlier.

Tianna Swearinger led four Greenwood players in double figure scoring with 22 points.  Moates tallied 18 points, Iyanna Jones had 14 points, and Austin Davis came off of the bench to tally 11 points.  Scott County was led by Audrian Christopher’s 28 points, while Guyn added 26 points to her 23 boards.

* Edgewater (Orlando, FL) led by as many as 29 in the second half and cruised to a 55-26 opening round victory over Jackson County (Gainesboro, TN).

Edgewater (10-3) used a strong pressing defense to force 22 Jackson County (10-1) turnovers and then turned them into 29 points.  Nyala Shuler paced Edgewater with 15 points, 11 rebounds and five steals.  Haley Clark and Amariah Woodruff chipped in 11 and 10 points, respectively, for the Eagles.

Jaycee Coe led Jackson County with 15 points, seven boards and three steals.

* Kaydra Duckett tallied 25 points and eight steals to lead Dreher (Columbia, SC) to a 55-47 victory over the William Fleming Colonels (Roanoke, VA).

The Blue Devils (6-0) remained undefeated despite shooting just 29.7 percent (19-64) from the field.  Dreher overcame its poor shooting performance by forcing 30 William Fleming turnovers and grabbing 25 offensive rebounds.  The Blue Devils turned the boards into 16 second chance points and the turnovers into 23  points.  Sophomore Jhileiya Dunlap posted a double-double for Dreher with 18 points and 17 rebounds, including 11 on the offensive end.
