Weeks three & four of Middle Georgia Basketball Academy’s Fall Madness League provided some intriguing matchups featuring a couple top rated Middle-Georgia prospects, which prompted the Central Georgia Technical College coaching staff to make an appearance. As the weeks move along and the competition heats up Hypesouth Media will give you the rundown from the sideline.
Game 1- Central-Macon 42 vs. Bostic Next Level 23
Central-Macon cruised past Bostic Next Level in the opening game of week three. Harold Thompkins (pictured) made his presence felt with 12-points and six rebounds and Micah Womack added 8-points in the win for the Chargers. McCrae Ball had 10-points and Khalil Johnson tossed in eight for BNL.
Game 2- Mary Persons 50 vs. Jones County 49
The backcout duo of Brandon Hogan and Dee Morton gave Jones County matchup problems all game. Morton finished with 12-points and five assists while Hogan collected 8-points, three assists, and the game winning basket for Mary Persons. Tre Dean (13p) and Chavis Mathis (8p) had thirteen and eight respectively for the Greyhounds.
Game 3- Howard 30 vs. Southwest-Macon 20
Both teams were out of sink offensively for a large portion of the game, however, Howard found its rhythm late in the second half to pull away from Southwest-Macon. L. Pitts was the high-man with 10-points in the Husky win while D. Gordon led the way for the Patriots with six.
Game 4- Middle Ga. Elite 37 vs. Westside-Macon 32
This game featured 4 players from our 2019 preseason top-25 player rankings and things got interesting to say the least. MGE seniors Darius Dunn (No.5) and Ty’Ree Gilbert (No.14) did just enough to hold off Westside-Macon’s sophomore one-two punch Kowacie Reeves, Jr. (No.16) and Javian Mosley (No.22) who combined for 24-points in the loss. Everything considered, the veterans came out on top here, but the surging underclassmen certainly put everyone on notice.
Game 5- MH Elite 50 vs. Tattnall 49
Tattnall jumped out early and held a narrow lead at the midway point, but Kobe Sewell caught fire in the second half knocking down 5 trifectas, which helped lift MH Elite to a one point victory. Cam Cherry chipped in 11-points and five assists in the win. Jamil Stanley was solid for Tattnall finishing with 12-points and eight rebounds in the loss.
