Jaylen Brantley Leads BABC to 2-0 Start at Peach Jam

Brantley shot 14-26 from the field on Day One.

Game One: BABC 61 Iowa Attack 39
- All Iowa Attack is ranked #14 in the Five Star Top 25 and they feature big time prospects such as PG Marcus Paige, combo-guard Mike Gessell, and red-hot seven-footer Adam Woodbury.  So going in, it was expected that this would be a good ballgame, and therefore, a huge crowd gathered to take this one in.  Well, BABC ruined it for everyone who expecting a close ball game by blowing out AIA from the start.  BABC led by between 15 and 20 points for the entire game and finished with a 61-39 smothering.

In terms of the heralded threesome of Woodbury, Gessell, and Paige, BABC held them to a combined 8-27 from the field with 12 turnovers and two assists.  Nightmare on Elm Street.

- BABC shot 50% from the field (16-32) in the 1st Half while holding Iowa to 24% (2-21).  In the 2nd Half, each team shot 45%.
- Georges Niang had 16 points and 5 rebounds
- Nerlens Noel went for 12 points, 10 rebounds, 3 blocks, and he held Adam Woodbury to 3-12 shooting.
- Jaylen Brantley popped in 10, dished out 7 dimes, and grabbed 3 steals.

Game Two:BABC 79 Meanstreets 70

- In the second game of the day, BABC went up against Meanstreets out of Chi-town in a high scoring affair in which Jaylen Brantley busted out for 27 points on 10-15 shooting.  Meanstreets tested the BABC back-court on the regular, giving the BABC guards the opportunity to prove that they could weather a Windy City Storm.  Jaylen Brantley and Rene Castro were more than up to the challenge.  Castro played all 32 minutes and Brantley played 31 and they were rocky steady, with Castro turning it over only twice all game and Brantley none at all.  Up front, BABC was led by 15 points on 6-6 shooting from Georges Niang, 9 pts, 7 boards, and 4 bloacks from Nerlens Noel, and 10 points in 14 minutes for Wayne Selden.

BABC back to work for Day 2 of Pool Play tomorrow.  Stay Tuned
