Fulton @ Austin East (1/17)

The epic clash between Fulton and Austin East II was supposed to commence last week but due to electrical malfunctions the game had to be rescheduled and Saturday the 17th becomes the day.

The day of reckoning. Fulton, the defending AA state champion, is always at their best after the holidays and a big win over Oak Ridge last Saturday proves this point. Jalen Steele (Fulton) was gigantic in the win scoring 29 and covering for his backcourt mate James Gallman (Fulton) who had to attend to family matters and was unable to play.

Both guards will be primed and ready for their round two in what usually ends up being a four round fight. Round one went to the Roadrunners and they have kept the momentum currently standing at 15-0 at the halfway point of the season.

Brandon Lopez (Austin East) has taken the reigns as the leader of this troop and his decision making and scoing ability have led to this unblemished record. Chase and Chance Jones give Coach Mitchell his in and out persona and big Travai Pryor loves the games that matter.

Come early and come all to the greatest show on hardwood this Saturday night....dig it.
