SCRIMMAGE RECAP & HIGHLIGHTS: No. 2 Westside-Macon 88, Locust Grove 36

November 15, 2016, GHSA Class AAA No. 2 Westside-Macon (GA) took the court for the first time this season in a much anticipated preseason opener against Locust Grove (GA). From the outset, Westside imposed its will on an overmatched Wildcats squad. The usual suspects for the Seminoles were up to their normal routines on Tuesday night. However, Gregory Holloway, a 6-foot-5 junior, burst onto the scene serving as a pick-me-up for Westside as Khavon Moore was held to limited action. He finished with an impressive 18-points and 7-rebounds. The hardworking forward opted to spend his entire offseason training and focusing on his individual skill development rather than play on the summer travel circuit and it seemed to have paid off. If this is a sign of things to come, Holloway will add another dimension on both ends to an already loaded Seminoles squad.

Newcomers, Kentrevious Jones and Trey Foster blended in well in their debuts as Seminoles. Jones ran the floor well and was very active on the defensive and offensive interior. The 6-foot-10 Xavier signee finished with 25-points and 5-rebounds, while Foster chipped in 9-points and 4-assists. The 6-foot-2 combo guard was cool, calm, and collected and seemed to fit in perfectly to Westside’s scheme of things. Offensively, he played under control taking what the defense gave him as well as defended at a high level.

Jones finishes strong in the paint.

Foster goes coast to coast for the easy bucket.

On a night where the Seminoles cruised to an 88-36 victory over Locust Grove in their preseason (scrimmage) opener, 5-star prospect Khavon Moore was held to limited action, but still managed to finish with 8-points and 2-rebounds and looked to be ready to go once the season officially starts up on November 26, 2016 against Norcross (GA) at Georgia’s nationally recognized Holiday Hoopsgiving tournament. Overall, the Seminoles seemed to be as advertised and are poised to make a run at the GHSA Class AAA state title.
