Savannah High(62) Vs. Beach High(52)
November 27, 2012By Jessie Fleming of The Southeast Georgia Report
One of the best basketball rivalries in Georgia was back in force Saturday night at the Savannah Civic Center as Savannah High met up with Beach in the Greg Oliver Thanksgiving Day Classic.
It was a typical hard-fought, close game between two of the top teams in Rivalry Basketball in Savannah. Coach Tim Jordan Savannah pulled away at the end to secure a 62-52 win in the first game of the season for both teams.
The Blue Jackets got the job done with the kind of defense that defines coach Tim Jordan’s teams. And Savannah also made aggressive forays to the basket. Savannah made 31 of 49 free throws, while Beach had just 14 free throw attempts — making nine.
Savannah used a balanced offense to keep Beach off balance. Junior Jamal Norman led the Blue Jackets with 14 points. Senior Jovante Spivey and sophomore Jermaine Williams added 12 points each. Jermaine Williams the super sophomore look for real big things from this kid!
