BOYS SECOND ROUND RECAP
By Kyle Sandy, Craig Sager II & Seth Ellerbee
Road-tested M.L. King stuns McIntosh

As they have all season long, ML King (24-5) yet again faced adversity and yet again overcame its trials and tribulations. The No. 2 seeded Lions were on the road facing No. 1 McIntosh (29-1) which stood as the only undefeated team left in Class AAAAA. ML King rallied from a 52-37 deficit with a minute left in the third quarter and shocked the Chiefs with a 66-65 victory.

 

The Lions, whose gym burned down before the season started, had not played a home game all season.

The coaching staff has deemed the bunch the "Road Warriors", having to play at opposing teams' gyms twice a year. Entering the postseason, the experience of having the crowd against them the entire season, has given the Lions an edge against opposing teams.

 

 

With that said, McIntosh still got off to a hot start. The Chiefs led 20-13 after the opening quarter and had its offense running smoothly with Will Washington and Jordan Lyons pacing the attack. Lyons would finish with 22 points on the night. MLK managed to surge back in the second quarter and held a 31-28 lead at the half. The momentum built up from a big second quarter was soon erased however as the Chiefs regained control in the third quarter with a 24-8 scoring advantage. A game-changing play took place near the end of the quarter when Will Washington, who was controlling the game with his passing, took a hard fall. Washington went up to lay the ball in, but Andre Brooks of ML King pinned the shot on the backboard. Washington tried to cushion his fall but ended up breaking his wrist after coming down hard and his night was done.

 

With McIntosh's floor general out of the game, Coach Tony Brinson decided to switch up the defense. The Lions moved from a 2-3 Zone to a 2-2-1 Zone to a Man defense and began to trap Lyons every time he touched the ball. With Washington hurt, the ball handling duties shifted over to Lyons' hands. Brinson's Lions forced the ball out of his hands as MLK gambled on letting others beat them. Braxton Shaw canned four 3-pointers and Chase Walter scored 13 points all on dunks and free-throws, but the rest of the Chiefs struggled to shoulder the load.

 

Juquan Jones scored a game-high 35 points for the Lions and fueled the comeback as ML King outscored the Chiefs 27 to 12 in the final frame. Jordan Lyons connected on two late free throws to give the Chiefs a 65-64 lead, but Jones would answer, streaking to the basket and getting fouled with 6.1 seconds remaining. Jones calmly sank both free throws and ML King was able to hold on for the thrilling victory. Jones banged home five 3-pointers in the win and Jordan Martin added 15 points to help lift the Lions to the Elite Eight.
