Arthur Hill Defeats Renaissance 82-63

18 Jan

The Renaissance Phoenix came into Saturday’s game against the Saginaw Arthur Hill Lumberjacks on a two game losing streak, and it extended to four after a 82-63 loss to the Lumberjacks.

Renaissance came out strong, but they were out matched by the depth and athleticism of Arthur Hill.  Arthur Hill led 17-12 at the end of the 1st quarter. Junior guard Justin Turner kept the Phoenix in with an eight point quarter.  Sophomore Brian Bowen led the Lumberjacks with six points.

Senior Eric Davis (Texas) got off to a slow start in the 1st quarter, but picked it up in the second quarter to finish the half with 14 points.  Davis ended the second quarter with a three from the corner as time expired, and Arthur Hill led 40-25.

The third quarter was more of the same, complete dominance by the Lumberjacks on both ends of the floor. Arthur Hill came out in a press that Renaissance could not handle, and it led to several easy baskets for Arthur Hill.  On the offensive end the Lumberjacks were led by Eric Davis and junior Billy Burton.   Justin Turner had 18 points after three quarters, and fellow junior Alaric Jackson was providing a physical presence in the paint but it was not enough.

Arthur Hill went on to win the game 82-63. Eric Davis led his team in scoring with 25 points, he also added 8 assists. Billy Burton finished with 21 points, and Brian Bowen finished with 18 points and 14 rebounds.  Justin Turner finished the game with 30 points to lead all scorers.

Arthur Hill improves to 6-2, while Renaissance (4-4) will face the Bulldogs of East English Village next.
