WACG March Madness Game Recap: Walker's Shot Lifts George Hill

Kevin Easley (George Hill)

Marquise Walker hit a three pointer in the closing seconds as George Hill All Stars defeated CB Spiders 54-53 at the We All Can Go Tournament in Nashville, TN. Kevin Easley led George Hill with 22 points and Devon Dotson paced the Spiders with 16 markers in this 7th Grade Showdown. 

Top Performers 

Kevin Easley Forward (George Hill)- Easley gave the CB Spiders serious problems in the post. The 6’4 forward used his good footwork and soft touch to torture the defense. I also was impressed with his ability to hit the face up jumper. He’s very polished for such a young player and only should get better. Finally, he was an intimidating force on the defensive end by blocking shots and getting rebounds. 

Marquise Walker Guard (George Hill)- Walker is a home run hitter which means he likes going for the big play at the big moment. Well, today he answered the bell by knocking down the go ahead trey ball in this action packed contest. He’s willing to get his teammates involved even if he over penetrates sometimes. He has some good basketball instincts. 

Antran Cushinberry Guard (George Hill)- This guard has to be one of the best on ball defenders in the country. He made the Spiders ball handlers work for everything they got. He ended the contest with about six steals and caused a bunch of havoc. He fouled out late in the game but it was a question on his amount of fouls. 

Devon Dotson Guard (CB Spiders)- This blur with the rock led the Spiders in scoring and got them back into the contest after the fell behind early. In transition he puts tremendous pressure on the defense and exhibits superb body control. This kid is a gamer!

Qon Murphy Guard (CB Spiders)- Murphy’s physical play makes him an instant impact. He has picked up his aggression and is a gutsy shot taker. If I could name player that he impacts the game like it would be Ron Artest because of his strength and versatility. Stay tuned as we bring you more action from Nashville.
