Duncanville outlasts Mansfield Lakeridge in a high scoring affair 100-93. This was a high scoring game that didn't feature much defense from either side. With this amount of points scored on both sides you can imagine there were some stellar individual offensive performances. Here are a few who stood out in the game last night.
Duncanville 2020 6'7 Wing Micah Peavy scored 26 points and had 12 rebounds in last night's win. Peavy was a terror in transition finishing above the rim and used his body and athleticism to really get on the glass. He was aggressive attacking the basket and got into the paint whenever he wanted to. Peavy has the size, IQ, versatility and athleticism to be a dominant high school player. When he's locked in nights like this should come relatively easy for Peavy.
Duncanville 2020 6'2 G Eyan Gooden had the three ball working for him last night and his team needed every one of them. The junior guard shot 6/7 from three. Eyan was dialed in offensively and was one of the few players who played defense in this game. He played with a ton of energy and confidence. It was right on time for Duncanville as they needed a second scorer to step up in this high scoring affair.
Mansfield Lakeridge 2019 6'1 G Tahlik Chavez was on fire last night scoring 26 points. He scored from all three levels and really showed a nice handle. Chavez showed the ability to create for himself off the bounce. He made some big time shots off the dribble from deep. The unsigned senior can score in bunches when rolling. Tahlik is one of the best available unsigned seniors in the DFW.
Mansfield Lakeridge 2020 6'4 Wing Joey Madimba finished with 24 points and close to 10 rebounds. The explosive wing got to the basket at will and finished through contact. He continues to show improvement on his jump shot as well as extending his range out to the three point line. Once he tightens up his handle some Joey is going to be very tough to deal with. The junior already holds offers from UNT and UAB. I expect his recruitment to continue to rise over the coming months.
