17U ACC Gold Championship

Carolina Pressure 17U-67

NC Red Storm 17U-66

This was a heavyweight fight that went to the final round with neither team giving an inch!  2019 DJ Thomas who is pure fun to watch and both 2020 Jackeem Herbin and Taylor Bell helped give Red storm a 30-28 halftime lead. Jackeem  Herbin is a tough kid who does a lot of little things and is very versatile.  2nd half Carolina Pressure turned it up a notch lead by 6’6 ’20 Kelton Talford who was unbelievable and very tough to guard had 26 points and at least a dozen rebounds and also Demetric Hardin with 15 helped Pressure take the lead in this back and forth battle. Late in the 2nd half DJ Thomas became a menace on the court nobody could stay in front of him started to get face guarded all you could hear from the stands were “don’t let 0 get the ball”  next possession you hear “see we told you not to let him get the ball”  even with DJ doing all he could Talford was just too much in the paint  and helped Carolina Pressure pull out the win but it still all came down to one shot with seconds left 6’6 ’20 Brenton Benson drove the lane and got the shot to go in that eventually put them up by 1 to seal the victory.
