Flight 22 and the WNC Warriors faced off in the 15U ACC Bracket Championship on Sunday in what was a back and forth affair. Flight 22 led 28-22 at halftime, led by their trio of Mansaun Bryant, Kavaugh Spence, and Amare Bethel. Bryant led his team with 11 points, Bethel put up nine points and Spence put in eight points.
Asher Cunningham and Dashawn Stone were a force in the paint for the Warriors, with six points apiece at halftime. Both showed their willingness to do the dirty work down low and it was one reason why they kept things close.
They made a late run at the end to tie things up at 55, but Flight 22 did enough to seal a 62-57 victory and earn the title in the Phenom Hoops Queen City Showcase. Bryant finished with a game-high 28 points to lead the way for Flight 22, scoring off drives and a couple of 3-pointers to pace his team’s offense. He’s a heady point guard always looking to make the smart play for his team.
Along with Bryant, Kavaugh Spence was another player active on scoresheet. He produced 17 points in the championship game for Flight 22. His role on the wing and on defense was another key cog in Flight 22’s trip to the title. Spence and Bryant were dynamic enough to get it done in the end. For the WNC Warriors, 2022 guard Caleb Senyo paved the way on offense with 16 points.
