FINAL, Word of God 70 Webb 57 : Isaiah Hicks and Mitron Terry combined for 14 final quarter points, but the duo's performance was not enough and the Webb Warriors fell to the Word of God Holy Rams in the Shavlik Randolph winner's bracket.

Starting center Tyrek Coger contributed greatly to the Word of God win. Coger scored 8 points in the last quarter and played punishing defense in the post. He finished with 23 points and 9 rebounds. 8th grader Jordan Whitfield scored 17 points, and future Pitt point guard Joshua Newkirk finished with 12.

As for the Webb Warriors, Isaiah Hicks finished with 24 and Mitron Terry had 21. The performances of the two stars were not enough, and the duo never seemed to fire on all cylinders consistently through the game. Offensively, the team got little support outside of its two leading scorers.

The Shavlik Randolph Bracket final game is now set, and Word of God will play New Hampton High School of New Hampshire for the championship tomorrow night at 9 pm. Webb High School will face High Point Christian tomorrow at 2:20 pm for the prize of 3rd place.

END Q3, Word of God 47 Webb 40 : The Holy Rams jumped out to a quick lead in the third quarter thanks to 9 consecutive points from 8th grader Jordan Whitfield. Whitfield has shown the ability to hit the outside shot and has a good mid-range game as well. Center Tyrek Coger has added solid minutes down low, staying active on the glass. For the Webb Warriors, a large reason they are still in the game would be due to the play of Mitron Terry. After being held to just 3 points in the first half, Terry has scored 11 in the quarter. Isaiah Hicks was held scoreless in the 3rd, and the Warriors have had a hard time getting all their weapons playing well at the same time.

HALF, Word of God 30 Webb 27 : The second quarter of the game offered fans all the excitement they may have missed out on in the first, and the atmosphere has changed drastically here in the gym. The Holy Rams have fought off a furious scoring run by Isaiah Hicks and the Webb Warriors to go into the locker room up by 3.

Isiah Hicks has 16 points on 5-of-12 shooting at the half. 9 of those points came in the 2nd quarter. He has added 6 rebounds. This is just about the only bright spot for the Warrior offense, as no other player has more than 4 points. Starting guard Mitron Terry, who scored 32 points in Webb's previous game, has been held to just 3 points so far.

The Holy Rams have executed a well-balanced scoring attack. Center Tyrek Coger leads the team with 10 points. Josh Newkirk and Jordan Whitfield have 6 points each, and Shane Whitfield has added 4. Jordan Whitfield hit a three in the closing seconds of the half to break the tie and give Word of God the halftime lead.

END Q1, Word of God 18 Webb 9  : The Holy Rams have done a good job splitting up the scoring duties amongst the team in the first quarter. Pitt recruit and starting point guard Josh Newkirk has 6 points to lead his team. Isaiah Hicks has scored a quick 7 points for the Webb Warriors.

PREGAME : In what is likely to be an exciting game, Isaiah Hicks and his Webb High School Warriors will take on the Word of God Holy Rams. On the line is an appearance in the Shavlik Randolph Bracket final game against New Hampton high school and Indiana commit Noah Vonleh.

Word of God handled the Apex Cougars earlier in the week, winning 58-47. Word of God is led by Pittsburgh recruit and starting point guard Joshua Newkirk, who scored 16 points in the last contest. Lehigh commit Shane Whitfield, a physical and aggressive post player, had 18 points and 7 rebounds for the Holy Rams. The team brings an impressive combination of size and speed to the court.

On the other end of the court, Webb has a deadly scoring offense and seems to put points on the board at will. Playing for the Warriors is UNC commit Isaiah Hicks, who many regard as one of the best players in the tournament. Hicks had 24 points and 13 rebounds in Webb's last win; an easy victory over Clinton High School. Mitron Terry is another player for Webb who creates matchup problems on the court. He scored 32 points against Clinton and combines a smooth jumpshot with the ability to get to the rim.
