Laney has played brilliant basketball all season. But what should be particularly worrisome to class AAA playoff participants is that for three consecutive games the Wildcats have been scorching hot from the field. The Wildcats scored 92 points in a region tournament semifinal victory over Josey, 40 in the first half of the championship game versus Washington County, and 85 Tuesday in the opening game of the state playoffs.
|Laney's Zep Jasper is featured in the video above. Tonight|
was the first game in weeks he didn't face AJ Gray (WACO),
Darius Williams (Josey), or Don Coleman (Butler).
Watch the second episode of "The Playoffs" above to see Zep Jasper, Jashawn Brooks, Christian Keeling and company lead Laney to a 44-18 halftime lead in front of a roaring, filled to capacity home crowd.
I've learned Butler, Josey, and Washington County lost Wednesday. Expect something special from me soon about the seniors on those teams.
Harlem won Wednesday. And I should know Aquinas and Augusta Christian's next move soon.
My weekend schedule will probably include the sweet sixteen round games for Greenbrier's girls, Laney's girls, Laney's boys, and Harlem's boys, as well as GRU's homecoming game.
And expect an update soon on the college hoops scene. At halftime of the Laney game, I left to see GRU hammer Francis Marion. I'll report on that here tomorrow. Until then, you know where to find me.
