Lighthouse Day 2 Notes

Corinth 3rd Annual Lighthouse Thanksgiving Classic

Saturday November 28 Day 2

Top notch games, top notch players, top notch teams! Thanks to all the volunteers that helped with the Lighthouse. Thanks to not only Vince Overholt and Gary Caveness for what they do but also thanks to their families. They put many, many hours into making sure this event goes smoothly and that takes a lot of time away from their families. Also thanks to Randy Williams Photography, the best sports photographer around. Check out his Lighthouse photos at Randy J Williams Lighthouse Galleries.

Baldwyn

Felix Hayes 6-3 Jr F: 15 pts, 7 reb, 2 bl, 3 st; Hayes made a big impression at this event; he played in a north half football championship game the night before where he earned MVP honors and played a basketball game about 12 hours later and earned MVP honors there also; played big around the basket; could be a major force once he gets his basketball legs under him

Corinth

Antares Gwyn 6-2 Sr F: 20 pts, 9 reb, 8-10 fg; Antares was a combined work of art; he didn’t really just stand out to me as dominant but in the end he had 2 20-10 games; 20 pts-10 reb vs Bolton and 20 pts-14 reb vs CPA; can really leap

Columbus

Columbus: They really showed what they have in this game playing with the USA Today #18 team in the country. It was close until the last couple minutes and Miller Grove gained a lead and held on

Robert Woodard II 6-6 So F: 32 pts, 6 3’s, 8 reb; he was on fire; I can’t wait to see what he grows into over the next couple years; we really have something special in MS with him; great on the boards; good ball handing and passing
