Cards down Lewisburg

Coach Kenzaki Jones said all he asks of his Cardinals is “that they leave it all on the court each night and so far they have.”

That all-out effort resulted in Class 2A Potts Camp dominating Class 5A Lewisburg 62-41 Tuesday, Nov. 15, at home.

Eighth grader Mitchell Saulsberry continued with his strong showings. He scored 17, eight of those coming in the first quarter.

“I must say, I am surprised at how well he is playing,” Jones said. “He has already had two double doubles in the four games he has played in, and he is the leading scorer on the team.”

Alec Smith contributed 13, eight of those in the second quarter, while Micah Powers, Tavaccius Burnside and Shaun Gorman all had eight each.

Potts Camp led 30-15 at halftime and outscored the Patriots 32-26 in the second half.

“We have a nice mixture of young talent this year,” Jones said, “and all the guys are playing hard. We are still working on our chemistry, but I have seen positive things so far.”

He said Powers, Burnside, Smith and Gorman, all seniors, play an important role on the team, and he appreciates their leadership.

The Lady Cardinals were on the short end of a 48-32 score versus Lewisburg.

They trailed by just five, 31-26, going to the fourth quarter but gave up 17 points in that period while only scoring six.

Leading scorers for Potts Camp were Destinee Hannah with 14 and Ashley Anderson with 10.

The Lady Cardinals and Cardinals hosted West Union last Friday. After the Thanksgiving break, they will host county rival Byhalia on Tuesday, Nov. 29.
