    Lawrence North 54 Pike 46
    -------------------------

    Lawrence North led the whole game, but Pike made their runs and kept it relatively close if not for a few calls that did not go their way the outcome could have been different.

    LAWRENCE NORTH
    Greg Oden (7'0 C JR): 19 points, 9 pts in both the 2nd and 4th quarters.
    Mike Conley (6'1 G JR): 16 points, 11 points in first half

    PIKE
    Braxton Mills (6'6 F/C SR): 18 points, but was denied by the rim on a dunk attempt
    Jeff Teague (6'1 G SR): scored 8 points, 6 in the 4th quarter, played great on the ball defense, but did not play a lot of minutes due to Pike's depth and foul trouble.
    Cordell Passley (6'2 G FR): Unforunately he did not get into the game, but look for him to see plenty of minutes next year.

    North Central 74 Decatur Central
    --------------------------------

    This game was back and forth throughout as NC took a 7 point lead into the half, but DC was able to make a run everytime NC extended the lead to double digits. NC made their free throws down the stretch and was able to beat the half court pressure defense DC used in the final 4 minutes by getting the ball to the free throw line and passing to the man cutting from the baseline for dunks on 3 seperate trips by 6'2 junior guard Lajuan Barlow.

    NORTH CENTRAL
    Eric Gordon (6'3 G SO): 18 points, 13 points in the first half, showed his ability to be a one man fast break as they got him the ball quickly after a rebound and he went at the defense 1on3 and was able to draw a foul. Looked like the best player in either game and has the ability to do almost anything he wants. Looks much better then Vaden did at the same point in his career.
    Jordan Campbell (6'5 F JR): 22 points, 13 in the first half. He was the first line of defense in NC's 1-2-2 full court pressure defense. He can go inside or outside and works very hard on defense. Would most likely be a SF in college. He could be a guy that could be a star at a MAC school or a role player at b10 school IMO.


    DECATUR CENTRAL
    Devon Dumes (6'1 G JR): 26 points, including at least five 3-point field goals. He was the only player on DC to show much scoring ability and he kept them in the game by hitting several 3's from well behind the line. Not sure if he is a big ten talent player, but I could see him going to Ball State or IUPUI.
