North-South Basketball (Boys) South 72, North 65

 

   The South All-Stars snapped a 12-year losing streak Wednesday night beating the North 72-65 at Alabama State University’s Dunn-Oliver Acadome to claim its first North-South boys all-star basketball victory since 2002.
    The North leads 46-26 in the Alabama High  School Athletic Association series hosted by the Alabama High School Athletic Directors & Coaches Association. The first game was played in 1953 at Tuscaloosa. 
     South 6-foot-8 center Kevin Morris, the South MVP, scored 13 points and cleared seven rebounds – both team highs – to snap the North domination.  He was 5-of-6 from the field and also had two blocked shots and two assists. The South, coached by Dallas County’s Willie Moore and Faith Academy’s John Price, took control in the second quarter outscoring the North team 18-11 to take a 37-29 lead in at the half.
    The North, coached by Chris Love of Oak Mountain and Brian Pounders of Deshler, outscored the South 36-35 in the final two quarters but could never retake the lead.
    Jack Kline of Mountain Brook had eight points and a game-high eight rebounds to be named the North MVP.  Triston Chambers of Cold Springs had 12 points, including two 3-point goals, and Micah Fuller of Bessemer City added 10. Javien Williams of Woodlawn also had nine points with two treys.
    John Pettway of Keith chipped in 10 points for the South. Joshua Hill of Faith Academy added six points and seven rebounds. Carroll-Ozark’s Deric Patton, a 5-11 guard, electrified the crowd with two monster windmill dunks and finished with five points.
    The South’s last win prior to Wednesday’s victory was an 85-76 triumph in 2002.
