FINAL High Point 59 Christian Miller 50: High Point Christian rode the duo of Isiah Gill and Ben Kobani to take down the Miller Mavericks in both teams' first game of the Holiday Invitational. Miller could not overcome a poor shooting performance, despite Isaac Copeland's 18 point output.

Kobani poured in 17 points for the Cougars in the win and Hicks had 13 points. High Point Christian will move on to face the winner of Greenfield School and New Hampton, NH.

END 3Q High Point 38 Miller 32: High Point used a combination of defense and the hot shooting of Isiah Gill to gain a 38-32 lead after 3 quarters. Miller who only shot 28% in the first half continued their cold shooting by only making 2 field goals. Copeland leads all scorers with 12 points while Gill has 11 for High Point.

HALFTIME Miller 24 High Point 22: Still a sluggish game as the teams head to the break with Miller School leading 24-22 over High Point Christian. High Point took a 17-10 lead early in the 2nd quarter, but behind Aram Martin and a buzzer beater by Isaac Copeland, the Mavericks were able to overtake the Cougars before the end of the 1st half.

Big man Mike Kobani has 9 points for High Point as he is owning the paint right now. Copeland is leading the Mavericks with 7 points.

END 1Q Miller 10 High Point 8: Both Miller School and High Point Christian are off to a sluggish start in their first games at the Holiday Invitational. Both teams have been trying to shake off the rust early. All of Miller's made baskets have come from the 3 point line thus far. Highly touted Isaac Copeland, playing in front of NC State head coach Mark Gottfried, UNC Head Coach Roy Williams and many others has only 3 points thus far. Guard Alvah Phillips leads the Cougars early with 3 points.

Pregame: This game will feature the first out of state school to grace the courts of Holiday Gymnasium as Miller School from Charlottesville, VA will face off against High Point Christian.


The Miller Mavericks are back in the HighSchoolOT.com Holiday Invitational for the 2nd consecutive year and this time they hope to do much better than their 6th place performance from last year. The Mavericks feature local Raleigh product Isaac Copeland who transferred from Ravenscroft. Copeland has scholarship offers from NC State, Virginia, and many others and recently UNC has started giving him a look. To complement Copeland is a number of other players including big man, Tony Washington and sharpshooter Aram Martin.


High Point christian are making their first appearance at the HighSchoolOT.com Holiday Invitational and will lean on Jackson Kent and Diante baldwin. Kent is committed to play for James Madison while Diante Baldwin will head to UNC-Greensboro.
