A Wild Ending in the Peach Jam Semifinals

P.J. Washington and Mohamed Bamba tip-off before Saturday’s final game.

Team Penny thundered out to an 18-point halftime lead behind hot starts from P.J. Washington and John Petty, but it wouldn’t last.

The PSA Cardinals slowly dug their way out of the deep hole when Quade Green flipped the script in the second half, scoring eight straight to tie it with less than five minutes to play.  Back and forth they battled down the stretch.

Petty’s deep three with 1:30 to go looked like it might be the clutch play of the night, but with 29 seconds to go, he made the mistake that cost Team Penny.  A lazy turnover turned into two points for PSA, giving them the lead.  With time winding down, Washington’s post play against Mohamed Bamba was too strong and Team Penny was eliminated, 66-64.

Washington and Petty were fantastic, but Green’s clutch second half was too much.  “Don’t call it a comeback.”

 Stats

  • Quade Green: 21 points, 6 assists, 3 steals
  • Mohamed Bamba: 7 points, 7 rebounds, 2 assists
  • P.J. Washington: 13 points, 13 rebounds, 2 blocks
  • John Petty: 11 points, 2 rebounds, 3 assists

Petty wasn’t the hero, but this dunk blew the roof off the gym.

Mokan 83, California Supreme 61

Trae Young and Michael Porter Jr. put it to DeAndre Ayton’s team from the start.  The pair of threes to begin the game defined the rest.  Ayton didn’t get into the flow of the game until the second half, but it was far too late.  Mokan advances to the finals by winning two games by a combined 55 points.

Stats

  • Trae Young: 22 points, 6 assists, 4 rebounds
  • DeAndre Ayton: 18 points, 12 rebounds, 2 assists

    I read these two lines in the recap and something’s not lining up ! If “Washington’s post play against Bamba was too strong”, then how was “Penny eliminated, 66-64” ? Like you said earlier, you’ve heard too many whistles 🙂 Not being critical, we appreciate all your coverage. Showing our appreciation by reading EVERYTHING.

    I fear KSR the website is circling the drain…We may need a wiki to save it.

    I thought the same thing Cal’s Hoverboard. How in the world did they lose if Washington’s game was to strong for Bamba?? This kid is a writing, typing contradiction in nearly every article he writes.

    That was a dunk? It must have been a pretty quiet gym for that lame play to even make people stand up.
