Cross Creek and Aquinas stay undefeated and Mayo leads Rebels to win at summer league

If you follow @AugBball on FacebookTwitter, and Instagram, you may have seen my live highlights and updates from Thursday's summer league girls games at Butler. Here are the complete highlights and some thoughts from the three games I watched:

Cross Creek sprints past Butler

Like most of the other times Cross Creek plays an area team, the Lady Razorbacks picked apart Butler with their signature execution. A quick Butler run narrowed Cross Creek's 9 point halftime lead to 2 at 27-25 early in the second half. But the momentum quickly turned and never turned back as the Lady Razorbacks spent little time dribbling aimlessly and much time running the floor, throwing the ball ahead, and finishing fast break opportunities before claiming a 53-27 win.

Hephzibah's Mayo leads Rebels to victory over Josey

Emani Mayo made a three with less than a minute remaining to put Hephzibah ahead of Josey 34-33, and she immediately stole the ball to secure the 39-35 summer league win. Mayo, her sister Nicolette Mayo, and Josey's Brianna Dubose, all return to teams that reached the class 3A state tournament the past two seasons. In November, Hephzibah will move to class 4A and battle preseason region favorite Cross Creek. Josey will move down to class 2A, as will favorite Laney and many other Richmond County schools.

After two spurts, Aquinas tops Josey

Aquinas scored 10 straight points to take a 21-11 lead early in the second half. And after Josey made a run of its own, the Fighting Irish battled back from a three point deficit, scoring 9 points quickly on two buckets each by Erin Rush and Jasmine Sanders, and taking a 33-32 lead before Mary Kate Williamson sealed the 35-32 win with a late field goal.
