White Plains wins Davenport; Oxford falls in Birmingham

By East Alabama Sports Today

White Plains had its way with both opponents in Friday’s Daniel Davenport Memorial Tournament and won the championship going away.

The Wildcats swamped Pleasant Valley 71-21 and beat Faith Christian 86-30. They hit 19 3-pointers in the two games.

Against Pleasant Valley, they extended a 13-4 first-quarter lead to 42-11 at halftime. Jake Montgomery (13), Jared Guthrie (10) and Eli Hightower (10) all scored in double figures for the Wildcats.

It was more of the same in the nightcap as they hit 11 3-pointers and opened a 47-21 halftime lead. They scored 35 points in the second quarter.

Hightower and Montgomery each nailed four 3-poonters in the game and finished with 16 and 18 points, respectively. Logan Williamson had 19 of Faith’s 30.

The championship game for Faith was a complete reversal of its first game. The undermanned Lions used a barrage of 3-pointers to take down Pleasant Valley 65-55.

The Lions, who were missing three regulars for various reasons, hit nine 3-pointers in the game. Ryan Crosby (23 points) hit four and Logan Williamson (21) hit five.

“It kind of just happened that way,” Faith coach Bradley Dawson said. “I told them we needed to put it all on the line in this one and not wait for White Plains and then we’ll go from there. It was just kind of open and we took them. Our joke is hands down, man’s down; if your hands are down, we’re shooting them.”

VESTAVIA HILLS – Oxford held a slim halftime lead then lost its shooting touch in the second half and fell to Albertville for the second time this season.

The Yellow Jackets led 22-21 at the break, but scored only eight points in the third quarter and nine in the fourth.

Querrian Mason led the Jackets with 15 points and seven rebounds. Jakolbe McClendon had eight points and nine boards. Kaleb Kidd, who missed the first meeting with Albertville, had 11 points and five assists.
