Gordon Tech’s Thanksgiving Tournament continued Tuesday evening. In the first game, Richard Career Academy easily defeated Lake View High School, 76 to 33.
In the second game, the Gordon Tech Rams held off the Ida Crown Aces, 55 to 43. After giving up the first bucket of the game, the Rams grabbed the lead and never trailed again. The Aces battled the bigger and faster Rams the whole way and GT never pulled away.
The Aces tight man-to-man defense turned off GT’s outside shooter David Andrews. Crown’s own excellent outside shooting in the first half narrowed the Gordon Tech lead to 24 to 22 at halftime. Gordon Tech head coach Shay Boyle turned up the defense in the third quarter which proved too much for the Aces. Foul trouble by the Aces put the Rams at the line for much of the fourth quarter. The Rams pulled away at the end. GT’s junior guard, Jerry Davis, lead all scorers with 20 points.Senior guard, Ori Schwartz, lead Ida Crown with 11 points.”
