Motor City Roundball Day Four Recap

31 Dec

Melvindale ABT 67 vs. Windsor (ON) Catholic Central 61– The Gators received balanced scoring throughout their whole roster, as they had five players score double digits.  Terron Ramsey led ABT in scoring with 16 points, while grabbing seven rebounds.  Also for the Gators Claude Lewis III and Lavail Russell chipped in with ten points each.  The Comets of CC struggled on offense throughout much of the second half.  Mychal Mulder tallied a game high 20 points for CC.

Davison 31 vs. Detroit King 72– The Crusaders of Martin Luther King took advantage of Davison for a 72-31 game.  This game was only in question for King when it was 0-0 with eight minutes to go in the first quarter.  Any observer could tell that once King got on a 9-2 run in the first three minutes of the game, it was over.  Dayvon Austin took home the MVP for the Crusaders with 17 points and seven rebounds.  Austin is a 6’3″ forward who plays much more  like a 6’7″ wing.  Despite his size, he likes to bang down low and is successful in doing so.

Inkster 55 vs. Detroit Renaissance 57– Inkster will give some people a scare this year.  When Inkster has the combination of a sharpshooter like Deaven Hansbro, who shot 33% in this game, to go along with 6’8″ big man Donnell Jarmon, that is one lethal combination.  Jarmon led Inkster in scoring with 18 points and grabbed five rebounds.  The thing about Jarmon is that is super athletic.  He can out muscle you for a ball or sky above you for it.  If this kid develops a low post game, he will definitely be one to reckon with from colleges.  Clark Bishop won the MVP for Renaissance scoring 25 points and grabbing seven rebounds.

Detroit Douglass 36 vs. Chicago Orr 47– Douglass’ offense just seemed to die off in the second half.  As they only accounted for 17 total second half points.  Orr’s offense was not that much better, but once again, Tyquone Greer led the Spartains this time, coming up one rebound shy of a double-double.  Greer tallied 23 total points, and pulled down nine rebounds.  I am telling you, this kid can play.  He told me that he already has offers from some division one teams.

Chicago Hyde Park 80 vs. Toledo Rogers 62– The defending Toledo City League champions Rogers dug themselves into a deep hole when they trailed 25-11 after one quarter of play that they could not get themselves out of.  The front court of Hyde Park was the difference in this game.  Having to deal with the loss of 6’8″ Moshawn Thomas, who is one of the most feared big men in Chicago,  Jacob Taylor and Tory Mason stepped up in the loss of Thomas.  Taylor took home the MVP scoring 25 points for Hyde Park, while Mason contributed a double-double dropping 20 points, and bringing down 12 rebounds.

Gary (IN) 54 vs. Detroit Southeastern 60– The visitors from the city of Michael Jackson’s hometown fought valiantly on the road against Southeastern.  But were not able to come out with the victory.  Leonard Harper-Baker recorded 15 points for Southeastern, which helped him take home the MVP of the game.

Harper Woods Chandler Park Academy 60 vs. Detroit Pershing 70– The premier game of the day featured two of the state’s top point guards in Derrick Walton for Chandler Park and Kahlil Felder for Pershing.  Pershing is once again stacked with talent.  Martez Walker contributed with 23 points for the Doughboys.  And oh yeah that Felder guy, he scored 24 and get this, pulled down 13 rebounds.  13 rebounds, I thought 13 assists would  have been more likely for a 5’10” guard, he still did manage to get three assists.  Derrick Walton finished up with 21 points and five assists for the Eagles.  Pershing is once again scary this year, once they get Justin Tillman back from an injury, their defense will be able to stop any big man that will come in their way.
