Beach Ball Classic Updates

Dave Telep has details from the Beach Ball Classic

Daequan Cook, SG, Dunbar – Dunbar is going to wish they had this one back because a superior effort was squandered by the Airmen. Cook scored 27 points (12-for-22) and was the lone player on the roster to hit double-digits. Cook wore it out from mid-range on the left side of the court. More impressive than his 27 points were the 14 boards he was credited with. A strong game by Cook wrecked by 21 Dunbar turnovers.

Scott Reynolds, PG, Herndon – For his high school team he's cast in pretty much a do-it-all role but on Monday, he reverted back to shooter and had it rolling pretty good. The future Sooner bombed away from 3-point land to the tune of 8-for-15 from downtown; 8-18 overall. Basically, his 3-pointers were the difference. When it was over, he scored 24 and Herndon extended its margin late in the second half. Reynolds said he was about "65%" and is hobbled by a bruised pelvis.

Mike Jones, PF, Lower Richland – Every now and then you just need a "do over." Jones simply couldn't buy a bucket – despite a series of close range looks – against Herndon. His 4-for-17 from the field will be his worst offensive game of the year and it happens every now and then. Sure, he's got to tighten up his shot selection but he's a better player than the stats bear out. To his credit, he stayed active on the glass and really pursued – and blocked – his share of shots. Finished with 16 points, 13 boards and 5 blocks.

James Dews, SG, Lakota East – Yikes, these guys came from Ohio and found themselves involved in knock ‘em down, drag ‘em out good old fashioned 15-8 halftime game. The teams combined for 63! Dews couldn't find his range (4-14, 0-6 3s) but got "hot" in the second half to finish with 14.
