Early Monday basketball

Here are some quick hits from today’s early basketball action. Includes Weaver, Ohatchee, Pleasant Valley, Alexandria, Jacksonville, Saks, Spring Garden

Haralson County Invitational
Weaver 69, Bremen 61:
After watching his emerging senior post enjoy an MVP week right before Christmas, Weaver coach Daryl Hamby was interested to see how Malik Arnold would handle his success in the post-holiday season.

Judging from his play Monday, Arnold is handling it just fine. He scored 27 points and dominated down low either by his teammates finding him along on the block or him making an individual post move. Craig Copeland had 14, hitting 6-of-8 from the line.

Glencoe Holiday Shootout
Ohatchee 54, Cedar Bluff 39:
Austin Tucker scored 26 points, going 14-for-14 from the foul line. Brian Jennings had 12.

Alexandria 66, Sardis 33: Luke Tucker scored 13. Eleven players scored for the Valley Cubs.

Boaz 58, Ragland 26: Trey Clark hit four 3-pointers and scored 15 points. Evan Jones added 12.

Haralson County Invitational
Pepperell 76, Weaver 35:
The third quarter, which has been Weaver’s nemesis since the end of its season-opening five-game winning streak, proved the Lady Bearcats’ undoing again. Elon commitment Madison Wilder led four Pepperell scorers in double figures with 19 points. Caleigh Cortez led Weaver with 17. Rayne Beck had 13.

Spring Garden 60, Bremen 53: Lady Panthers coach Ricky Austin would have liked to come up with some fantastic explanation for his team’s comeback, but in the end it boiled down to two simple things: Tookie Rodgers clearing the boards and Madison Sides hitting shots.

Rodgers scored 22 points and grabbed 18 rebounds, while Sides scored 11 of her 18 points in the fourth quarter as Spring Garden rallied from a 14-point third quarter deficit after the game was tied at the half.

Sides hit three 3-pointers in the fourth quarter, the first giving her team a 47-46 lead, the second giving it a 50-49 lead and the third extending it to 53-49.
