Davis finds his shot as Rebels rout 'Roaders

January 13, 2011|By JACK HILL III | Staff Correspondent

HAGERSTOWN — Junior guard C.J. Davis scored 10 of his 13 points in the second quarter to help the South Hagerstown boys basketball team turn a close battle into a rout as the Rebels beat Brunswick 62-41 on Thursday night in the MVAL Antietam.

Davis made three 3-pointers, including two in the second quarter.

“We didn’t play up to our highest potential, but we found a way to win,” Davis said. “In the second quarter, we started to realize that we had to play with more intensity on defense. When our team does good on defense, it opens up our whole game. I was open to shoot, so I just took advantage of my opportunities.

“We have become more of a team now than at the start of the year. If we execute, we can win a lot of games.”

Andre Pierre had 15 points, while Xavier Freeman and Devon King added 10 points each for South (9-1, 5-1). King pulled down seven rebounds, while Darico Provitt grabbed six rebounds.

“We had a little rough start,” Rebels coach Kevin Naylor said. “Once we got things ironed out, we moved things a little bit better. I was happy with our defensive effort tonight. We switched from a man-to-man defense to a zone defense. I think we played the zone defense a little bit better.”

Brunswick (5-6, 2-4) jumped out to a 6-0 lead in the first two minutes. South responded with seven straight points. After the Railroaders regained the lead at 9-7, the Rebels scored the last seven points of the first quarter to take the lead for good at 14-9.

Davis’ 10 second-quarter points allowed the Rebels to increase their advantage to 32-21 at halftime.

“I thought that C.J. played a good game for us tonight,” Naylor said. “He shot the ball really well tonight. He has been playing well for the last few games. All of our guards are playing well right now.”

The Rebels outscored the Railroaders 23-14 in the fourth quarter to pull away.

Center Ian Fisher led Brunswick with 15 points and 11 rebounds.

“We had a horrible shooting night,” Railroaders coach Dan McLane said. “You have to give South credit. They make you rush your shots. They are tough to shoot against because of their length.”

In the JV game, Devon Redman scored 18 points to lead South Hagerstown to a 72-52 win. Zach Hassler led Brunswick with 11 points.
