Notes: Sparkman took advantage of a 18-3 first quarter and was able to hold Center Hill off the rest of the way.

Center Hill cut the lead to singles digits several time and even had it down to a two possession game at one point but it wasn’t enough to overcome the deficit. DeShunn Dunn (6-3 ’22 SG Center Hill 20 pts 3 3’s 1 reb 2 ast 1 st) looked good in the loss for the Mustangs.

(B) FayetteWare Wildcats (3A Somerville, TN) 65

Callaway Chargers (5A Jackson, MS) 53

Notes: JaSteven Walker (6-10 ’22 PF Fayette-Ware 13 pts 3-3 ft 10 reb 2 ast 1 blk 3 st) earned MVP honors with his solid play in the win.

Kevion Hunt (5-11 ’22 PG Callaway 29 pts 14-24 fg 1 3’s 7 reb 4 ast 7 st) looked really impressive in the loss for Callaway. In fact, that’s the best I’ve ever seen Hunt play. I also walked away from this event with a better understanding of his game mentally. He’s just that defensive goon that tries to get his teammates involved and he isn’t afraid to crash the boards.
