Harlem High School senior guard Demarcus "Dee" Morris is emerging as one of the premier guards in the CSRA.
The 5-11 sharpshooter has scored 21 and 25 in Harlem's past two games, and has his average up to nearly 20 points per contest. In the Dogs' 68-65 overtime win over Aquinas on Thursday, Morris scored 19 of his game-high 25 after the intermission. Greenbrier's Bryan Andrews and Evans senior Brandon Durr have also been terrific back-court players this season, but it will be very tough to keep Morris off the first team all-county squad at the rate he is going.
it with "D"
The Greenbrier boys basketball team often is overlooked because of the incredible success of the school's girls team. However, the 'Pack deserve some recognition after starting the year 10-1.
Casey Dees' squad has been solid on the defensive end of the floor so far this season. Greenbrier is giving up 53 points per game. They have held four opponents under 50 points, and have yielded more than 59 points only twice. Also, they are 10-0 when they give up less than 70. Burke County scored 71 vs. Greenbrier in the 'Pack's only loss.
Bragg and the
Lady Jags close out
a solid fall season
Former Evans High standout Kristen Bragg is entering her junior season for the Augusta State women's golf team. She and her Jaguar teammates just wrapped up a very good fall schedule.
The Lady Jags finished fifth or better in all five of their tournaments. They had three runner-up finishes and appear to be ready for a big spring.
Bragg played in all five events this fall. She had a scoring average of 78.07. She also managed to record three top 20 finishes, including a 12th place finish at the Lady Paladin Invitational in October. In her 14 rounds this fall, her low 18 holes was an even-par 72.
Bragg and the Lady Jags open the spring schedule Feb. 18-20 at the Don Shula Golf Club in Miami Lakes, Fla., for the Papa John's Collegiate Championship. Good luck to Bragg and her teammates this season.
