Now fans got a chance to watch the action with the Phenom HoopState, as Liberty Heights and Moravian Prep meet again. Liberty defeated Moravian earlier in the season and Moravian handed Liberty one of their two losses just recently… now, they meet for a chance to compete for a championship. Moravian Prep came out strong in this one with the early lead but Liberty Heights came back to tie. Jackson Holt found success early from three for Moravian Prep, while BJ Freeman continued to play strong. Liberty had an array of players get in the boxscore, led by Isaac Farah and Elijah Jamison.
Tied at 22 in a hard-fought battle, it was Liberty Heights that came out strong in the second half, really getting it done on the defensive end while Isaac Farah and company started to knock down shots from the perimeter. It helped build a cushion that they were looking for, including the first double-digit lead. But give credit to Moravian Prep, as a Ray Bellamy throwdown got the crowd on their feet and the energy level off the charts. That is when 2025 Eli Ellis started to come alive from deep, cutting the deficit to 41-38 and giving us and the fans a game that looked to come down to the wire.
Moravian Prep had a chance to tie but could never get over the hump. Aidoo made some big plays, while Liberty Heights was able to seal the big win and a chance to compete in the championship on Sunday with a 51-45 victory.

2025 Eli Ellis (Moravian Prep): You have to give this kid credit, he is NOT afraid of the bright lights, and in fact, he absolutely loves it. He stepped up big late to get his team back in showing off his unlimited range, as we as his ability to create off the dribble and find his teammates. Kid is just a competitor.
2021 Isaac Farah (Liberty Heights): Farah put together another solid performance and stepped up when his team needed a boost offensively, showing just how he can stretch the floor with his perimeter shooting but also have a great feel in many areas on the court. The young man needs more attention from coaches for sure!
2021 Jonas Aidoo (Liberty Heights): Moravian Prep didn’t have a big of his size and Aidoo used that on multiple occasions. With his length and mobility on the floor, he keeps the ball high and finished well through contact, especially in key situations down the stretch.
