Legacy Advances to Semis on Davis’ Game Winner; Hoyas Even Series with Rockers

Legacy knocked the Lakers out of the playoffs on a game-winning basket by Kyle Davis that propelled them to a 74-72 victory and a date in the semifinals with the mighty Kings, while perennial powerhouse the Hoyas rallied with a 81-65 blowout of the upstart Rockers to even their series at one game apiece in New Breed Basketball Association action on Wednesday night at the Ronald Charles gymnasium on the Central High campus.

Legacy 74, Lakers 72

Davis hit the game winner that completed a huge comeback as Legacy outscored the Lakers 21-10 in the fourth quarter to pull a hard earned a 74-72 victory. The win propelled them into the NBBA 2013 semifinals against a tough Kings Basketball team.

Sean Tutein continues his hot shooting by leading the Lakers with a game high 18 points while grabbing 10 boards. He got good support from teammates Bobby Evans who had 17 points and 11 assists, and the game-winning Davis who finished with 13 points.

The Lakers were led by point guard Rashawn Williams, who finished with his fourth triple double of the season. He had 17 points, 10 rebounds and 11 assists. Other Lakers finishing in double figures were Charles Moorehead (17 points and 12 rebounds) and Terrell Harris (11 points, 13 rebounds and four blocks).

Hoyas 81, Rockers 65

After being shocked in the playoff series opener by the youthful Rockers, the Hoyas – five-time NBBA champions – responded on Wednesday with a message, sending blowout victory energy over the youngsters, 81-65, in a contest that was not as close as the 16-point gap in final score.

The Hoyas opened the game with a 24-12 first quarter and never looked back as they cruised to the lopsided victory. Kurt “Tennis Man” John was a monster defensively for the Hoyas. He grabbed a game and season high 24 rebounds, swatting away seven shots, while contributing 15 points on the offensive end.

Other Lakers in double figures were Warren Christian who netted 14 points to go with 10 boards, Karl John had 13 points and 10 boards, and Eddie Castillo finished with 18 points.

For the Rockers, Amari Krigger had 110 points, six assists and six rebounds, and Tecoi Felix netted 13 points and grabbed five rebounds.
