Consortium 81 vs. Dayton Dunbar 44- Dunbar is a pretty well-respected team in the State of Ohio.  But Consortium treated them like they were their little brother.  Freshman Josh Jackson had seven of his team’s first 13 points in the first quarter giving them a 21-8 lead at the end of one.  Consortium’s Vincent Hunter, a UTEP commit, gave Dunbar big man Damarion Geter fits all day in the post.  Consortium built up its lead up to 43-18 at half, and Dunbar was never able to get the deficit under twenty for the rest of the game.  Things got so bad for Dunbar, that a running clock had to be instilled in the fourth quarter.  Jackson finished up with 27 for Consortium, while Hunter added 24.  A.J. Harris led Dunbar scoring 12 points.

Southfield Christian 47 vs. Allen Park Inter-Ciy Baptist 46- Sophomore Bakari Evelyn saved his best for last scoring 11 of his game high 25 points for Christian in the final quarter.  Here is how the end of the game went.  Christian had the ball with about 15 seconds to play looking to win the game.  They missed the shot but got the rebound with less than a minute left to play.  So they thought.  The officials decided to put two more seconds on the clock and place the ball underneath the basket, making it a better angle for the final play.  What do you do with the game on the line, give the ball to your playmaker.  Evelyn lobbed a pass up to Damarco White and tipped it in for the final game winning score.  White finished up with only 6 because he had been in foul trouble throughout most of the game.  The win for Christian makes up for an earlier game this year where they lost to Baptist at the buzzer.  Evan Kraatz had 21 Inter-City.

Notes

Game 1: If they is one flaw is Josh Jackson’s game people criticize about it is his jump shot.  But that could not be criticized today.  Jackson seemed to pull up wherever he wanted to, making five three-point shots.  Josh reminded me of LeBron James today.  He played about four positions, and did not only score the ball.  He also acted like a facilitator, and a rebounder in the winning effort.  Both traits recruiters look for in a player.

Game 2: Evelyn has the skills beyond his years.  Not only did he play well on the offensive end, but in crunch time in the fourth quarter.  The sophomore stepped upped and played ferocious defense on Kratz of Baptist.  Before that, it seemed as if Kratz was getting anything he wanted with the previous defenders that guarded him.  But not until Bakari checked him.  Forcing Kraatz to have to give the ball to his teammates instead of doing whatever he pleased with the ball.
