Germantown wins the South District Championship!

In the first quarter, Lowrance and Germantown traded blows. Lowrance struck first with Tyler Brewer hitting Jonathan (Jon Jon) Timmons on the block for the assist. Germantown then fed the ball to Jacob Ivey in the high post, and Ivey finished through contact. Pound the ball inside. This seemed to be the strategy for both teams in the first quarter, and proved to be successful for Germantown. Both teams then started to rack up fouls, and during the second quarter, Lowrance had to sit Darius Cole and Timmons, but Germantown, with its deep team, could rely on their bench to keep scoring. Eventually Germantown was able to open up an eleven point lead to finish the half 27 to 16.

All good teams will make a run, and some say that basketball is a game of runs… Germantown did just that in the third quarter. They stepped up their efforts on defense and caused several take-aways. Lowrance was eventually able to close the gap in the third 29-27, but to no avail. Germantown weathered the storm and went on their own run in the fourth to win the game 42-37. Germantown wins the South District Championship!

Jacob Ivey played the ball like a pro and he had a monster first half for Germantown. He rebounded on both ends of the floor, blocked shots in the paint and on the perimeter, and scored the ball in the paint. Ivey also caused several Lowrance players to get in foul trouble early.

Jonathan (Jon Jon) Timmons was big for Lowrance. Trading blows with Ivey, Timmons carry the load for Lowrance in the first half. He was aggressive on offense and automatic from the free-throw line where he scored most of his points.

It appeared Tyler Brewer had an off night. Brewer had his way with Germantown in their only win over Germantown this season, but he can’t have an off night if Lowrance wants to make a run at the State title.

Jonathan Bins and the rest of the Germantown squad played well and had their moments to step and make a play… and they did!
