10th Region Tournament Review
I reviewed the quarterfinals in previous article.
Bishop Brossart 58 Robertson County 54
George Rogers Clark 81 Augusta 41
Montgomery County 52 Mason County 51
Campbell County 48 Pendleton County 38
George Rogers Clark 58 Bishop Brossart 45
Clark County got big games from each of their big 4. Lincoln Bush had 10 points and 16 rebounds. KJ Rucker had 14 points on 4 of 5 shooting from deep. Jared Wellman had 18 points and 7 boards and Jerone Morton had 10 points and 12 assists. Bishop Brossart couldn't get much going on offense. They missed several 3-pointers and layups. The Cardinals were able to alter several of their shots.
Montgomery County 76 Campbell County 59
The Indians dominated the Camels inside. Rickey Lovette had 20 rebounds and whole Camels team had 22. Lovette finished with 28 points on 12 of 13 shooting. Brandon Dyer provided outside shooting and finished with 16 points. Hagan Harrison had 18 and Zach Benton added 12 points and 9 rebounds. Jordan Gross had another good game for the Camels. Campbell County heated up from deep in the second half, but it was too little too late.
George Rogers Clark 53 Montgomery County 50
The Cardinals used defense to turn a 9-point 1st half deficit into a 3 point win. They kept the Indians' offense off balance all night. The game was also won at the free throw line, with the Cardinals shooting much better from the stripe than Montgomery County did. Jerone Morton's play was the difference in the game. Lincoln Bush had 9 points and 19 boards and KJ Rucker made several key free throws. Rickey Lovette and Brandon Dyer played well for the Indians. Both will return next year along with sophomore Hagan Harrison. The Indians and Cardinals could very well meet again in next year's 10th region finals. George Rogers Clark will play McCracken County at 8:00 p.m. on March 18 in the first round of the Sweet 16. McCracken County is a top 10 team in the state.
