Weekend Wrap-Up

Scott Wood has led his Marion Giants squad to an impressive 12-1 record this season. Their only loss of the season so far came at the hands of Lawrence North, who happens to be a National Top-10 powerhouse. The Giants had a busy and successful weekend as they beat Richmond 70-43 on Friday night and Northrop 48-39 last night. Scott Wood led Marion in scoring in both games as usual, scoring 28 against Richmond and 18 against Northrop. We realized something this weekend: Scott Wood is human after all. His streak of scoring 20+ points in a game was snapped last night. He had scored 20+ points in 12 straight games. But let's be real, Scott Wood might be human, but he might also be Mr. Basketball in the state of Indiana. Keep it up Scott!

John Wall also continues to make his opponents weep. He scored 38 points against Victory Christian on Friday night and led Word of God to a 76-64 victory. Word of God seems to be on a roll as they have now won 8 straight games. During this streak John Wall has averaged 27.4ppg. Also, C.J. Leslie eased his way back into playing on Friday. He played limited minutes due to his bum ankle but still scored 6 points. Bishop Daniels scored 4 points. Word of God is now 15-7 on the season.

The Centennial Knights are establishing themselves as a powerhouse in the state of Georgia. After beating Kell on Tuesday night to the tune of 79-48 they also took care of business on Friday night by beating Alpharetta 81-60. Lorenzo Brown scored 16 points against Kell and 11 points against Alpharetta. You might be puzzled by Brown's 11 points but don't be. Zo didn't play the fourth quarter and he splattered the box score in every category. He is a true teammate and true basketball player and his stats are a testimony to this. He had 6 assists, 5 rebounds, 4 steals, and 4 blocks to go along with his 11 points.

Murrah's emotions continued to ride high on Friday night as they beat Madison Central 73-70. LaQuinton Ross' offensive production accounted for 60% of Murrah's total offense. Yes folks, if you did the math you realized that Ross had a career night, scoring 44 points. This marks the highest point total on the season for any of NC State's recruits, topping Ryan Harrow's 43 points earlier this season. Murrah is now 12-10 on the season and might be streaking at the right time.

LeFlore lived up to their ranking on Friday night. They are the #1 team in the state of Alabama and they beat Lee-Huntsiville who is #10 in the state, 85-74. The 24-2 Rattlers were led as usual by DeMarcus Cousins who put up 25 points and 10 rebounds. At Wolfpack Hoops we try to be the voice of optimism, but on Friday night things got ugly. With around 5 minutes to play Cousins got tangled up with another player and threw him to the ground. He received a technical foul and his coach pulled him out for the remainder of the game. Cousins and a fan from the opposing team exchanged some words and later he was physically restrained by his teammates and coach from going to the parking lot. DeMarcus plays a selfless and passionate brand of basketball, but he has to learn how to control that passion.

Reco McCarter also had a big night on Friday as Wayne Country Day pounced on Faith of Rocky Mount. His 21 points and 11 boards led them to a 76-47 victory.
