An evening with the Kingz, Augusta's new ABA team




The ABA's Georgia Kingz improved to 3-0 with a 133-104 win Sunday over the Atlanta Aliens at Richmond Academy. Former Augusta University and Laney standout Harold Doby, who is currently finishing his studies and assisting Jaguars' coach Dip Metress, led all scorers with 42 points. PJ Meyers added 32, and Robert Turner chipped in 26.

Harold Doby led all scorers with 42 points Sunday.
The Kingz have not yet been challenged in the fourth quarter of an ABA game. The team features Augusta raised talent up and down the roster. In addition to Doby, Meyers attended Josey before earning NAIA All American honors at Life University. And Turner started at Texas Tech after graduating from Laney. Xavier Collier (Benedict College, Laney) Santoine Butler (USC Aiken, Cross Creek), and CJ Washington (UAB, Butler) also made significant contributions Sunday.

Team Power's scrimmage preceded the Kingz game 
The professional game was preceded by an inter-squad scrimmage between teams orange and white of the 4-7 year old Team Power AAU club. Sunday was the second time I'd seen these youngsters in action, and they impressed me as much then as they did the day after Thanksgiving at Paine College.

See our area's oldest and most talented players, as well as some of our youngest and most adorable, in the video above. And go support the pros when they are back in action Sunday, December 20, at Richmond Academy.
