South stuns Webster at Webster
January 16, 2014By psouth hoops of Parkway South Basketball
Jeremy Verges did it all for Parkway South.
The senior guard scored a game-high 21 points, held Webster Groves’ sharp shooter Sam Craig scoreless in the second half and the Patriots were able to walk away from Webster Groves with a hard-fought, thrilling nonconference victory.
“It’s a tremendous confidence booster,” Parkway South coach Mitch Stevens said.
Parkway South (5-5) got 17 points a piece from Luke Bakula and Matt Highsmith. Chris Dandridge had 12 points.
Stevens said Parkway South was able to close out the victory by keeping its composure on the court and at the free throw line.
“I think the difference for us was we were able to eliminate turnovers in the second half,” he said. “Free throws were huge for us late in the game.”
The No. 10 area large school in the STLhighschoolsports.com rankings, Webster Groves (9-3) got a team-high 16 points from Stephen Harris. Cameron Hilton had 14 points, Alex Floresca had 12 and Craig ended with 10 points.
The Patriots also made history by winning its 500 game for the program. Congrats to all the alumni that made this possible and to Jim Radkte and Tom Sucher (head coaches prior to Mitch Stevens).
