Peach Jam Breakout
BABC moves to 4-0 at Peach Jam
- No questions asked that this was a match-up between two of the best half-dozen teams at Peach Jam. CIA Bounce rose to the occasion and fought BABC tooth and nail for 32 minutes before forcing overtime in the final seconds of regulation. In OT, CIA had BABC on the ropes, up by three with the ball with under a minute to go. But BABC fought back and with about 15sec remaining, BABC retook the lead for good on a Rene Castro put-back. CIA subsequently turned over the ball and was forced to foul with 10 seconds remaining and BABC clinging to a 56-55 lead. Nerlens Noel strode to the line and nailed two charity shots to extend the BABC cushion to 3. CIA couldnt's knock down a three to tie it and the buzzer sounded with BABC taking a 58-55 victory.
- Nerlens Noel, yet again, put up a mythical and inhumane stat line...dropping a triple-double like will wonka with 13 points, 10 rebounds,12 blocks, 2 steals, and the 2 free throws which sealed the game. Does this fella rise to the occasion or what?
- Rene Castro could soon see his stock rise quickly as he has become a rock next to Brantley for Leo Papile. He does not come out of the game for BABC and does whatever he needs to do to help his team win while not worrying about his own stat line. Well in this one, what was needed of Rene was for him to put the ball in the basket, and he was more than happy to abide, leading the BABC scoring with 15 points on 7-9 shooting and the winning bucket + 5 rebounds. Let the offers roll in for this player.
- Georges Niang had a big 1st half for BABC with 12 points but did not score in the 2nd half.
- Jaylen Brantley does not know how to do anything but rise to the occasion. Tonight he put in 13 and played all 37 minutes (along w Castro) with zero turnovers.and two steals. Through 4 games at Peach Jam, Brantley has a whopping 2 turnovers.
