Dresser explodes for 59 points in Alleluia's win Tuesday

Alleluia's Ben Dresser scored Tuesday in a way we won't see for a LONG time

Ben Dresser
's Alleluia Angels' 92-80 win over the Augusta Eagles was not featured at AugBball Tuesday. And the team won't participate in this weekend's Garden City Classic, which AugBball will feature prominently. But the 6'2" senior scoring machine found a way Tuesday, and probably will the rest of the season, to snatch the attention away from the area's more talked about games with a 59 point explosion that included a 10 for 16 three point shooting spree!

In a text exchange after Tuesday's game, Dresser had this to say about his scoring streak: "It was a crazy game! I was just clicking tonight! Back door cuts were open time and time again. And I was 10-16 from three, so that was good. My teammates did a great job of feeding me the ball."

Beginning with Tuesday's Alleluia-Augusta Prep AugBball Game of the Night showdown that features Dresser and Prep's Ryan Jolly, I'll try to pay closer attention to the guy who is second to no area player as a shooter, a scorer, a competitor, and an all around player and person.

Dresser is averaging 33 points per game for the 3-2 Angels. Anybody who thinks those numbers are any less impressive because Alleluia has only played one game against a public school should see Westminster's game against Richmond Tuesday, or simply watch Ben play, to realize it is nonsense to discount his abilities because of the league in which he competes. Or one can simply try to visualize how difficult a feat it is to score an average of two points every minute for an entire game. Such a thing happens very rarely and when it does it is often a fluke. Not so with Dresser, who is having a historic season that I predict will only get better.
