The 2018 Phenom’s Palmetto Winter Classic has had some incredible games, however this one took the cake. You got to see this, this game had everything. It had buzzer beaters, it had incredible plays, it had high flying acrobatics. All in all, it was a great game, which ended up going into double overtime.
Both Morgan County, out of Madison, Georgia and Ridge View, out of Columbia, South Carolina, have loads of talent. Both teams are coming off great runs in the state state playoffs (Morgan County to the Final Four in Georgia 3A and Ridge View won the SC 4A).
Morgan County was led in the game by 6’4″ senior Alec Woodard with 23 points. 5’8″ unsigned senior Stevin Greene, who is an absolute dynamo, also had 23. 6’4″ unsigned senior Tyrin Lawrence, who is sure to become a hot commodity among mid-major programs in the late signing period, added 21.
For Ridge View, 6′ unsigned senior Wayln Napper was unbelievable all game, he finished with 28. 5’11” unsigned senior Crosby James continued to show why he is one of the better unsigned point guards in the region. Sophomore Tyler Rice, who carries a Penn State offer added 15 points. 6’11” Georgetown signee Malcolm Wilson was a true rim protector.
The final score was 89-87 as Morgan County won the game and advanced. With that said, what an incredible game!!
