Area Prep Basketball Report for Sunday, Jan. 22

It is safe to say that Newman plays one of the most challenging, if not the most challenging schedules in Louisiana.

The Greenies have played in four prestigious tournaments involving out-of-state powers. Newman has also played excellent Louisiana teams in Archbishop Shaw, Northshore, Ponchatoula, Madison Prep, Landry and St. Thomas More.

In a matchup of defending state champions, defending Division III state champion Newman downed defending 4A state champion Carver 58-50 in the Carver Hoops Classic Saturday.

Newman led 13-6 after one quarter and took a 27-21 halftime lead. The Rams closed the gap to 39-37 by the end of the third quarter.

Canin Jefferson led Newman with 21 points and Todd Jones scored 12 points while Chris Lockett and Jackson Williams each added 10 points for the Greenies.

Ken’Wyion White topped the Rams with 17 points, Laurence Nathan had 12 points and Jaylon Hicks added 11 points.

Newman (21-4) continues its challenging schedule facing defending 5A state champion Zachary this coming Saturday while Carver (13-11) will host McDonogh 35 Monday at 7 p.m.

In another good matchup in the event, Scotlandville downed Landry 70-60.

The Hornets led 18-14 after one quarter and 33-29 at halftime. The lead grew to 53-45 after three quarters.

Two-sport star C’Zavian Teasett led Scotlandville with 19 points, Jamal Drewery scored 15 points and Chase Sample added 15 points.
