The Mid-Carolina Rebels boast some great talent on the hardwood. Tuesday night saw their first game of the season as they took on Pelion High School. The Rebels played without standout Krishawn Holley who is out with an injury. Holley is also a top flight baseball pitching prospect as well. Mid-Carolina head coach Zebulon Reid submitted the following notes about Tuesday night's game for a quick rundown.
Notes from Coach Zebulon Reid
The first game of the regular season is never easy, especially when you're playing on the road. I thought our young players had a few jitters to start the game, however we settled down in the second half and starting making some nice runs. Jordan Harmon & Tevins Walker ran into some foul trouble in the first half and they were both forced to sit. Sean Davis, Pelion AA All-State Football Standout & varsity point guard scored 14 of his 17 points in the first half of play and Pelion's 6'5 post player Dewayne Moore scored 8 of his 12 points in the first half.
We made some adjustments on defense at halftime and I thought the guys did a great job on defense. Tevins Walker & Antwan Penny held Sean Davis to just 3 points in the 2nd half. Hubert Wicker was a difference maker at point guard tonight. Hubert comitted on 1 turnover in 32 minutes of play tonight. Hubert finished the game with 8 points, 3 steals, & 3 assists.
Sophomore Calvin Herbert had a monster of a game scoring 21 points, grabbing 11 rebounds, grabbing 2 steals, and recording one block. Tevins Walker recorded double figures (10 points) in his first MCHS Varsity Boys Basketball Game. I believe Tevins is going to be a major spark for us this season. He has great quickness. Nick Hentz scored 4 points, grabbed 4 steals, and recorded 8 rebounds. Jordan Harmon was bothered with foul trouble for the majority of the game, however he still was able to score 7 points, grab 6 rebounds, pick up 2 steals, and block two shots.
