The Chatt Tech Golden Eagles turned in a solid, balance offensive performance in picking up the Summer Hill Cup finale, after a 128-82 win over Summer Hill on Sunday evening. After a little bit of a slow start, the Eagles began generating easy buckets from solid defensive effort. Forcing misses, created transition baskets for Malik and Donald Jordan and Jalen Mitchell (G) got several dribble drives to the basket out of the half-court offense. After building a 35-20 lead, Summer Hill went on a run to trim the lead to 10, but CTC's bench came in with new energy. For the second game in a row, Jeremiah Shaw made an immediate impact with several nice offensive plays, whether it was cleaning up a teammate's miss with a putback or driving the lane. He also slipped behind the defense to receive nifty passes from Keith Ray (6'5''-SF). Markel Williams (6'2''-G) ran the floor well for several baskets, and Philip Garner (6'2''-G) began to work out of his recent slump, with a trey and several mid-range pullups. In what was one of the best offensive outputs in half for the season, the Eagles took a sizeable 71-35 lead into the intermission. In the second half, the Eagles were still scoring at a decent clip, but the starting five again had a let down defensively. During the first five minutes of the half, the Blue Devils found easy baskets on early passes up the floor for both layups and quick threes, producing 21 points during that timeframe. With the lead at 80-56, the CTC bench came in to regain command. Over the next five minutes, they held Summer Hill to only six points, and the lead blossomed to 100-62. Ray and Jamion Simpson fuled the offense, as they combined for 29 in the second half. The Eagles shot 61% (50/81) from the floor 41.7% from three (10/24), both respectable numbers, but continues to struggle from the line, only making 18 of 31 freethrows for only 58%. The CTC men will play host to the B2B Diamonds on Wednesday evening at Lakepoint Indoor Pavillion. Tip off is set for 7:30pm. Courtesy of: ctcgoldeneagles.com

He grew up a huge Oklahoma State fan, but Ty Lazenby(6'5''-G) is heading to Norman. The first-team junior college All-American committed to Oklahoma during his official visit Friday. Lazenby, 6-foot-5 and 215 pounds, averaged more than 22.9 points and 4.7 rebounds per game last year for Northern Oklahoma College-Enid. He shot 86 percent from the free throw line and 45 percent from the field. Lazenby was a major star at Glencoe (Okla.) High, leading Glencoe to back-to-back-to-back champion... [read more]
He grew up a huge Oklahoma State fan, but Ty Lazenby (6'5''-G) is heading to Norman. The first-team junior college All-American committed to Oklahoma during his official visit Friday. Lazenby, 6-foot-5 and 215 pounds, averaged more than 22.9 points and 4.7 rebounds per game last year for Northern Oklahoma College-Enid. He shot 86 percent from the free throw line and 45 percent from the field. Lazenby was a major star at Glencoe (Okla.) High, leading Glencoe to back-to-back-to-back championships. But his size was in question so he opted for the juco route. The journey has paid off with the commitment to the Sooners. He was contacted by OU assistant coach Chris Crutchfield last Sunday and the visit was confirmed Tuesday evening after speaking with head coach Lon Kruger. Lazenby visited Penn State earlier this week and was set to visit Utah on Monday but never ruled out committing to the Sooners if everything fell into place. OU is getting a real OKPreps feel to its team right now. The 2016 class saw Kristian Doolittle. The 2017 class has Scout 100 prospects Trae Young and Brady Manek. And now here comes a blast from the past with Lazenby. 'That would be a great opportunity if it happens,' said Lazenby to Sooners Illustrated on Tuesday. 'Trae Young - I mean you don't have to say much about him. Kristian Doolittle is a big, strong attacker. And everything I've heard about Brady is he's a sharpshooter with size.' Lazenby is hoping to be another piece to that puzzle. He was around 200 pounds coming out of high school and believes adding the 15 pounds in the last two years is a huge reason why his recruitment took off here recently. Lazenby will be a junior for the upcoming season but does have a redshirt season available to him as well. The addition of Lazenby means OU has one open scholarship remaining if Kruger and company decide to pursue another junior college or graduate transfer at this stage. Courtesy of: scout.com
