Richmond and Josey stay unbeaten; Glenn Hills wins third straight; andmore summer league highlights

If you follow @AugBball on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, you may have seen my live highlights and updates from Wednesday's summer league games at Butler. In this post are the FULL highlights from 4 of the games.

Williams brothers connect for game winner

Richmond remains unbeaten in June




Younger brother Isaiah Williams fed older brother Moses Williams, who flushed home a dunk seconds before the final buzzer to break a 38 all tie and preserve the Musketeers' unbeaten streak. Isaiah, a rising sophomore did a great job thwarting Laney's Donald Henley's attack on the defensive possession, which ended in a Henley turnover, that led to the game winning basket. Williams had also made several key baskets in the second half, none bigger than the three he made to tie things at 38, leading to the final play.

Butler's scoring spree propels unbeaten Josey to another win

Josey's depth and experience are difficult to match




Four Josey players have played major roles in the team's back-to-back state tournament runs. Throughout the past two season's, senior Johnathan Butler has been a dangerous scorer on the perimeter. When Lakeside appeared to control the game Wednesday, Butler responded with a pair of threes and a feed that led to a point blank Javen Whitehead dunk, all of which combined to give the Eagles another summer league win, their fourth in as many tries.

Glenn Hills wins third straight

Drew, Farmer, Sheppard have paced the Spartans





Robert Drew, Eric Farmer, and Antonio Sheppard have been dynamite in wins this week over Butler and Harlem. Drew and Farmer have consistently made shots from all over the court, and Sheppard dominated the offensive glass in the second half of Wednesday's 42-36 win over Harlem.

Evans 49, Hephzibah 39

Cardwell and Spann impressed





Junior Serron Spann, who is approaching his third season as a key member of Evans's varsity team, involved his teammates and scored key baskets, and the Knights earned a win over Hephzibah Wednesday. Duvall Cardwell continued his consistent play. And Hephzibah continued to show signs of improvement.
