Just as the old saying goes, "If you have a horse, ride it".

That saying applies to hoops as well, just ask te respective coaching staffs at Grace Baptis and Clarksville Academy.

Brandon Herman (Grace Baptist) scored 29 points and grabbed 10 boards leading the Golden Eagles past Westwood 66-53 and earning themselves a spot in the Class A finals against big and powerful Clarksville Academy.

Jarvis Sullivan (Westwood) finished with 15 points for Westwood.

In the day's opening contest, fellow Mr. Basketball candidate Malcolm Smith (Clrksville Academy) scored a hefty 29 points and snatched 15 caroms leading the Cougars past a determined CSAS squad 59-50 and their spot along side Grace for the crown.

Smith was not alone as his twin brother, Martin Smith (Clarksville Academy) dropped a double/double of his own scoring 15 points and grabbing 10 boards.

Alex Stallion (CSAS) concluded a sterling state tourney finishing with 23 points for the Patriots.

The championship game of the Class A division gets underway at 2:00 tomorrow followed by the announcement of Mr. Basketball.
