JAMINE JORDAN'S 33-POINTS OVERCOME PRATTVILLE IN FINAL QUARTER
Coach Xavier Robinson was disappointed with his Prattville Lions Tuesday night at Powell Gymnasium. The Lions jumped out front of the Calhoun Tigers early after the first tip as Kamryn Pettway tossed in a 2-pointer . After a turnover from Calhoun, LaBarren Eaton followed with a 3-point play the hard way for a 5-0 lead at the 6:12 mark.
Prattville led for the first 12 minutes of the game, fell behind by one at midway of the second quarter, and then regained the lead and held a 25-19 lead at halftime. Calhoun fought back and knotted the game by the close of the third period, 48-all.
The Lions then fell by the wayside in the fourth quarter as Calhoun scorched the nets for a 25-13 margin and rolled over Prattville, 73-61.
Prattville rolled to a 13-3 lead midway of the first quarter with a put back from Cody Smith. The Tigers won the final minutes to trim the lead to 20-11 with a three point play from Jakeem Davison.
Prattville played well for the remainder of the half, although Calhoun eased out front once with 4:59 left in the half with a basket from Jamine Jordan at 25-22.
Prattville quickly regained the lead with buckets from Cody Smith and Pettway. LaBarren Eaton and Kingston Davis made it 34-29 at halftime.
Still Prattville couldn’t hold the margin. By 2:39 of the third quarter Calhoun had tied the game at 43-43 with it remaining tied at 48-all with 1:13 left.
Jordan’s trey gave Calhoun a 51-50 lead as the quarter ended. The Tigers kept the heat on the Lions and led until Justin Coleman scored three quick baskets for a 59-57 Prattville lead at the 4:11 mark.
Jakeem Davison answered the Coleman’s basketball with two treys from top of the key and a 63-59 Calhoun lead with 2:48 remaining.
From that point the Tigers outscored the Lions 10-2 for the win. It was Calhoun’s second win over Prattville having defeated the Lions in Letohatchee earlier, 77-53.
Junior Kamryn Pettway paced the Lions with 15-points, followed Freshman Kingston Davis with 12 points, and Cody Smith with 10 points.
Jamine Jordan led all scorers with 33 points, while Jakeem Davison with 24 points.
