Close wins became the norm for the Raodrunners of Austin East this week. They saved their best work for last getting 23 points from tourney MVP Chance Jones (Austin East) and 13 from Travai Pryor (Austin East) while besting Christian Life Academy 57-56 in the title game of the Rumble on the Ridge.
Jones dropped 27 in the opening round victory over Selma,Alabama and was part of the balanced scoring effort in the 53-51 win over Greene County Tech. Also playing solid for the Roadrunners were seniors Chase Jones (Austin East) and Jamal Lundy (Austin East).
Jones was joined on the all-tournament squad by rising sophomore Brandon Lopez (Austin East). Lopez has seen his game grow exponentially this summer and his leadership has been key for the growth of this Roadrunner squad.
