Westside Christian Hangs On To Beat Redford Union

4 Jan

The Westside Christian Warriors were able to hang on and beat Redford Union 74-68 to improve to 5-1 on the young season.  It was a tale of two halves for Christian, in the first half, everything was going right for the Warriors.  They were getting steals, easy buckets in transition and playing great team defense, heading into the locker room with a 35-21 point lead.  However, Union waited until the fourth quarter to make their move, led by a strong performance by point guard J.C. Wade, the Panthers were able to get the lead down to 4 with 2:41 left in the fourth quarter.  But WCA used DeShawn Brocks and Derrick Brocks Jr. to hit crucial free-throws and ice the game 74-68.

Westside Christian has an underrated senior point guard in D’Juan Williams.  Williams finished up with 14 points, 7 rebounds, and a game high 8 steals.  He is a quick, scrappy, nimble guard that brings defense to the floor.  Williams has a high basketball IQ and plays bigger than his size would indicate, his perimeter jump shot wasn’t falling in the game, but got to the basket and made some nice finishes at the rim.  Junior DeShawn Brocks led Westside in scoring with a game high 16.  Brocks got most of his points from the free-throw line when attacking the basket in the open floor.  Coming off the bench and scoring 11 points for Christian was senior Justin Green.

The Panthers of Redford Union were led by J.C. Wade with 15 points, seven assists, four rebounds and two steals.
