New Heights 2010 win Jam Fest Silver

New Heights 2010 would be one of the more impressive teams in the 17u bracket. Their only one point loss came against a talented Massachusetts Expressions team.

Considering that the entire New Heights 2010 team is either in the class of 2010 or 2011, pound for pound, it was a most impressive showing.

While they didn't win the gold chip, they would compete for the chip against an apt Germantown friend team (GFS) and stun them by winning the Silver bracket championship.

New Heights 2010 would pull out to an early lead as Hakeem Harris would rein threes on GFS.

Mike Powell would knot the score for GFS and Issac Yorro would give them their first lead. A lead that would be short lived as JayVaughn Pinkston would power in for two.

Good ball movement initiated by freshman Corey Edwards resulted in easy buckets by Devon Collier and Ashton Pankey for the New Heights 2010 team . GFS would not go away as Anton Popov kept it close with an emphatic dunk followed by a put back by Luis Jimenez.

Frazier would play strong for New Heights 2010 in the first half as they maintained a 4 point lead with 3:41 remain in the half.

With New Heights 2010 showing sign of exhaustion, early buckets by Harold McBride and Kyheim Hall would keep the Bronx team in front with 42 seconds left in the half

Pinkston was relentless on the boards as the half ended with New Heights 2010 up 39-32.

To start the second half a hard foul from Dwain Winkfield on Pinkston would flare tempers and evoke a double tech as the refs tried to maintain control of the game.

Pankey score on the inside to keep a 5 point New Heights 2010 spread but outside shots began to falter.

A McBride foul shot would give New Heights 2010 there largest lead but GFS would fight back.

Collier showed his range with a 18 foot jumper as well as in the paint as the Bronx team lead grew to 10 points with 10:09 left in regulation.

As GFS players spent more time trying to get their individual points, New Heights 2010 exploited that fact with team play and went on a run to increase their lead to 14 points.

With 5 minutes left New Heights 2010 began to spread the floor to run time off the clock.

The young team would go on to win the silver bracket chip 63-49. Devon Collier would be the high scorer for New Heights 2010 with 18 points.
