Cape Fear men's basketball defeated Brunswick Community College, 108-66, in the play-in round of the Region 10 tournament. Jacque Brown (5'8''-PG) led the Sea Devils with 24 points, while Trae Bryant (6'1''-PG) had 15 points, 10 rebounds, and seven assists. For Brunswick, Bobby Stenborg (6'4''-G/F) led his team with 20 points and five rebounds. The Dolphins made it tough for the early minutes of the game, but Cape Fear used a couple of runs to put the game away. The Sea Devils knocked down a 3-pointer on their first possession, but Brunswick responded with four straight. Then, following a 6-6 tie, Cape Fear scored 9 straight to take a 15-6 lead. The run helped give them a solid lead into the heart of the first half. Jacque Brown and Trevor Willis were the game's early leaders, combining for 14 of the team's first 18 points, and knocking two 3-pointers a piece. After a bit of chippy play from both teams disrupted the flow of the game for a few minutes, Cape Fear was able to push their lead to double-digits with under seven minutes remaining. Shortly after, Brown's third 3-pointer of the night gave them a 14 point lead. Brunswick began pressing to get back in the game, but Cape Fear handled it well, and pushed their lead to 20 with three and half minutes remaining, capped off by a thunderous one-handed slam by Alston Davis (6'6''-G). That held for the remainder of the half, and they headed into halftime leading 46-25. The Sea Devils dominated the boards in the first half, 25-13. They also limited the Dolphins to 25 percent shooting. The Dolphins offered little resistance to start the second half, and Cape Fear took advantage, going up by as much as 27 in the first three minutes. Their 3-point shooting picked up, as Jerick Haynes (6'1''-G) knocked down two in row, while Davis and Trae Bryant each knocked down their first. As a team, they shot 43.3 percent for the game. The rest of the half went comfortably for the Sea Devils, who led by as much as 30 at multiple points. Scoring was spread out, with six players scoring in double figures. As a team, they shot 56.3 percent from the floor, and outscored the Dolphins 50-28 in the paint. It also marked the fourth game in a row the Sea Devils have scored 100 points or more. Head coach Ryan Mantlo was happy with his team's play, and believed the strong effort in the game was a result of the work they put in the day before. "[I'm] very, very proud. We had a great day of practice yesterday. The boy's were focused with the scout, and it paid off." While the team was dialed in on offense, they put in a big effort on the defensive end as well, limiting the Dolphins to 32.8 percent shooting for the game. Mantlo felt it was one of the best defensive efforts of the season. "I thought they played as a unit for the first time, it wasn't everybody on an island; they really bought into each other. If we can continue to buy in defensively, March will be a good month." The win means Cape Fear advances to the Region 10 tournament in Pinehurst, NC, which begins Friday. Their opponent, and the time of game, are to be determined. Courtesy of: goseadevils.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
