Loughlin Rings Plainfield's Bell

The announcer constantly called him man-child on the public address system and Jayvaughn Pinkston proved to be just that in the dismantling of, nationally ranked, Plainfield High school by his Bishop Loughlin Lions 77-59.

Pinkston, considered one of the top juniors in New York, dominated the game with a game high 30 points to go along with 14 rebounds and 4 blocked shots, as the Lions played by far their best game of the 1st annual Jingle Bells Jubilee Tournament in Paterson, New Jersey to win the championship.

Pinkston was named most outstanding player of the tournament and combined with senior forward Trevon Hamlet (15 points., 8 rebounds.) to control the paint.

After a close 15-13 1st quarter, the Lions went on a 6-0 run to start the second quarter and ended the half up 39-28 as Pinkston had 16 points at the half.

The assault continued in the second half as the lead ballooned to as much as 20 points. Plainfield was led by sophomore Tyrone Johnson and senior Anthony Baskerville, who each scored 16 points. Hamlet and guard Brandon Frazier each made the all tournament team for Bishop Loughlin.
