Kojack Thompson came out of this one with fire in his eyes early, completely controlling the game in the 1st quarter on the offensive end, leading Christ School to a hot start. He, Brad Halvorsen, Gabe Wiznitzer, and Trey Austin propelled the Greenies to a crazy first half in which they led 42-21 at the break. The start of the 2nd half was the Trae Benham found some rhythm getting his Concord First Assembly squad back within striking distance, but it wasn’t enough as Christ School came away with a 65-54 win.
3 Stars Of The Game:
5’9 2019 Kojack Thompson: Christ School
Thompson is a bonafide star, the kid finds a way to put the ball in the basket unlike most kids his size and is a more than worthy next level talent in my eyes. He did it in every way possible, from three off the catch, or the bounce, in the mid range, and at the cup. He runs his team at a really high level, empowering his teammates to be the best that they can be on both ends of the court. Look for D2s and D3s to be clamoring over the lead guard.
5’10 2019 Brad Halvorsen: Christ School
Halvorsen took the game over when his Greenies needed it most, going on an 8-0 run by himself mid-way through the 2nd quarter. He lit it up from deep, scored timely buckets, and was in total control throughout. He’s another one D3’s should watch closely throughout the season, he has legit game takeover ability.
5’10 2021 Isaac Boothe: Concord First Assembly
Boothe showed flashes of brilliance from the point guard position, playing like a senior as a sophomore, playing with a high level of poise. He finished with 15 points in the outing, scoring from all three levels, and sparking a little comeback, but it wasn’t enough as his squad dropped their opening game.
