HCYA-Word of God

Justin Jackson (44) HCYA. HighSchoolOT Holiday Invitational at Broughton High School, Raleigh N.C. held on December 26, 2013. The evening games featured Word of God vs HCYA. HCYA triumphs with a final score of 73 - 55 over Word of God (Chris Baird / WRAL Contributor).

Day two of the Holiday Invitational featured big time individual performances and great team efforts, and it sets up a potentially record-breaking championship day on Saturday.

One of the most coveted records could fall on Saturday morning in a seventh place game. Devin Booker (Moss Point) has scored 80 points in the tournament so far, leaving him 35 points shy of the record for most points scored in a single tournament. The record of 115 is held by Donald Williams and was set in 1990 when he played for Garner.

Williams went on to win a national championship at the University of North Carolina, but now he is an assistant at Garner. Moss Point will play none other than Garner on Saturday morning at 10 a.m.

Booker scored 42 points in the first round and 38 points in the consolation game on Friday.

Even if Booker doesn't break the record, it still may not be safe. Justin Jackson (HCYA) scored 42 points on Friday night after posting 36 on Thursday. Jackson is now just 37 points shy of the all-time record.

Middle Creek is in the seventh place game of the Summit Hospitality Bracket at 8:30 a.m., but the Mustangs could break a couple records on Saturday as well. Justin Tankelewicz is six 3-pointers shy of tying his brother, Tom's, record for most 3-pointers by an individual player in a tournament. That record was set in 2008 and stands at 13.

Middle Creek, which tied the team record for most 3-pointers in a game on Thursday with 11, could break their own team record for most 3-pointers in a tournament as well. The record is currently 23, Middle Creek currently has 16.

Seventh Woods (Hammond School) could also break the same record Taneklewicz is going for. Woods has 11 3-point field goals, the record is 13. Woods and Tankelewicz will square off in the 8:30 a.m. game.

Gary Clark (Clayton) could break a record of his own. Clark, a Cincinnati recruit, has 37 rebounds. He's 30 rebounds shy of the record of 67, but he's only 17 behind second place – 54 held by Garner's Raymond Miller.

Apex guard T.J. Wells had a monster night on Friday against Lake Highland Prep, and the senior could break the individual record for most assist in a tournament. Wells has 18 assists right now, which is 11 behind Andre Barrett's 29 set in 1999. Barrett played for Rice High School out of Harlem.

As a field, this tournament has had incredible performances. We have seen five 40-point games so far in this tournament, more 40-point games than any other tournament in the 42 year history of the Holiday Invitational.

We have also seen eight 30-point performances, one shy of the all-time record of nine set in 1992.

Records may fall on the girls side too. Cary senior and Duke recruit Azura Stevens has posted 51 rebounds in two games. She is one rebound shy of the record.

Here's the schedule for championship day at the Holiday Invitational:

Cary Academy (Girls Games):

10:00 AM - Riverside vs. Hillside
11:30 AM - Dudley vs. Cary
1:00 PM - Broughton vs. West Craven


8:30 AM - Hammond School vs. Middle Creek (Summit Hospitality 7th Place)
10:00 AM - Garner vs. Moss Point (Shavlik Randolph 7th Place)
11:30 AM - Word of God vs. Sanderson (Summit Hospitality 5th Place)
1:00 PM - Broughton vs. Clayton (Shavlik Randolph 5th Place)
2:30 PM - HCYA vs. Wilbraham & Monson (Summit Hospitality 3rd Place)
4:00 PM - West Forsyth vs. Chapel Hill (MIX 101.5 Girls Championship)
5:30 PM - Wheeler vs. Apex (Shavlik Randolph 3rd Place)
7:00 PM - Trinity Christian vs. Carlisle (Summit Hospitality Championship)
8:30 PM - Kinston vs. Lake Highland Prep (Shavlik Randolph Championship)
