Palmetto Classic
Miller School vs Conway

Day 2 at the Palmetto Classic is here and with it we have 6 more games on tap. Game 4 puts the Miller School up against Conway with a trip to the finals on the line. Both teams won close games last night and come in battle-tested and ready for the day. Conway only put 42 up on the board last night though, would they have enough firepower needed to hang with what looks to be an explosive offensive attack from the Miller School' We settled in to find out.
Conway came out hot and took a 10 point lead after 1 quarter of play (16-6) as Miller could not get it going. A few stops and 2 big 3's from Aundre Hyatt and Miller would tie it up at 18 all with 2 minutes to go in the half. Conway would counter with a run of their own and go into the break up 4 by the score of 25-21. Miller would show more in the 2nd half but still ended the 3rd quarter down 2 (37-35). 1 top seed had already fallen on the day (United Faith), could we see another one fall'
Conway put the defense on them to start the 4th and would go up by 8 at one point. Miller would fight until the end, but it would be Conway that would get out with the win in this one by the final of 59-54.

Players of note.

Miller School:

Aundre Hyatt, 6'6 2019 W ' Powerful and skilled wing shows out in back to back games. Versatile athlete can do it all out on the floor. Easy to see why he has so many offers in hand. (19p/6r)







Dae Dae Heard, 6'5 2019 G ' How can you not like a kid named Dae Dae' Strong wing player can attack with the best of them. Looks more like a big time running back than traditional hoops player but kid can go. Strong all-around game. (15p/6r/2a)









Jimmy Nichols, 6'7 2018 F ' Long forward prospect with a body made for hoops. Showed ability as a shot blocker last night (3 blocks) to go along with 10 points in a solid showing. Day 2 brings more of the same for Providence bound big. (19p/11r/3 blocks)







Juwan Moody, 5'9 2018 G ' Tough guard hit big shots in this one. Stretched the floor from deep while controlling the flow of the game from his PG position. Strong defender keyed teams effort. (16p/1r/1a)
