Carmel Christian and Northwood Temple started off Day 2 of the Phenom November Classic and it was the offensive shooting of Carmel that came out quickly to make a statement. Draining some early three’s, Carmel was able to quickly jump out to a big lead in the first quarter.
Carmel continued to hold that lead with a balanced attack throughout the second quarter as Northwood Temple was able to get it down to 15 at halftime but had a big hill to climb still in the second half.
It was pretty much cruise control in the second half, as Carmel Christian eventually built their lead to as many as 31 points and won in convincing fashion.
Final: Carmel Christian 92 – Northwood Temple 61
– Ben Burnham 20 points
– Kyle Bean 18 points
– Cade Tyson 11 points
– Jaquantae Harris 14 points
– Angel Dean 12 points
– Julian Williams 11 points
2021 Ben Burnham (Carmel Christian): Burnham is simply productive and fun to watch. So active on both ends, running the floor, flying through the air for throwdowns, and he can operate anywhere on the floor, finding ways to score. Think this young man is in for a big season at Carmel and has started out well.
2022 Jaquantae Harris (Northwood Temple): The sturdy, strong guard did a solid job in penetrating the lane and getting downhill, showing touch to get the ball on the rim or to get to the line. It was a tough day for the team but Harris played strong, leading the offense.
2021 Julian Williams (Northwood Temple): Coaches should take more of a look at what Williams can provide. Really like his energy and motor on both ends, and he has shown that he can be active around the rim but also operate off the dribble. Continues to be productive each time we see him offensively and on the boards.
2022 Kyle Bean (Carmel Christian): It was a pretty good outing for the 6’4 prospect, as he got the team off to a great start with seven early points and continued his shot-making all throughout the game. Bean can really be effective from outside, as he hit four 3-pointers in the win today.
