The 9th Annual Lighthouse Classic

Friday November 25, 2022

From Corinth HS

Corinth, MS

(B) Alcorn Central Golden Bears (3A Glen, MS) 70

Cherokee Indians (1A Cherokee, AL) 47

Notes: Alcorn Central used an early barrage of three’s to gain a comfortable lead and continue to apply pressure the rest of the contest to get the win in the first game of the 9th Annual Lighthouse Classic. Wilson McDonald (6-3 ’26 G/F Alcorn Central 24 pts 11-16 fg 2 3’s 5 reb 1 ast 7 st) came off the bench to provide a huge spark for Alcorn Central. The freshman had a coming out party nearly breaking the Lighthouse steals record. Mykel Goodloe (6-1 ’25 PG Cherokee 36 pts 5 3’s 3-4 ft 8 reb 3 st) dropped 36 in the loss for Cherokee.

(B) Moravian Prep Lions (Atlanta, GA) 110

Chicago Prep Freeze (Chicago, IL) 84

Notes: Moravian Prep came in and set a Lighthouse record with 20 made three point shots. They were firing it up early and often. Isaac Ellis (5-11 ’26 G Moravian Prep 26 pts 10-15 fg 4 3’s 2 ast 1 st) earned MVP honors with his scorching hot first half.

(B) Corinth Warriors (4A Corinth, MS) 40

Trinity Christian Academy Lions (II-A Jackson, TN) 54

Notes: Trinity Christian used a strong defensive performance and a balanced offensive attack to hold of the home team in the nightcap. Will Wysor (6-3 ’23 SG Trinity Christian 12 pts 4-6 fg 4-5 ft 6 reb 2 ast 2 blk 1 st) earned MVP honors. The Lions also have a special player to watch out for in the future. I’m sure Lekhy Thompkins (6-2 ’26 F Trinity Christian 7 pts 2-2 fg 6 reb 1 blk 2 st) will eventually be a Sunday player but for now he is my “Baby Zion”. Give him 5 more inches and he would be the athletic twin of Zion. He’s built like a brick wall and is freakishly athletic. He affected every area of the court in his limited minutes.
