In case you're wondering who BCA is......it stands for Burlington Christian Academy. Over the years, they haven't been all that great. This year, however, they've got some talent.
Last night, they beat River Mill 100-62. Ran them right out of Alamance County. Their full-court pressure threw RM all out of whack.
Also didn't help that RM star Chase Mebane went down with an injury in the first half and never returned. A shame as he was looking really good. Mebane has a versatile game. He's RM's "Lebron".
It was just my luck that BCA standout Jackeem Herbin also got injured early in the second half and never returned. I saw Herbin play last year for Cummings and really looked forward to seeing him play. That first half, he didn't disappoint. Herbin's game is so smooth.
Best player on the floor last night was a kid named Brock Williams. If you live around Burlington, you have to see this guy at least once. He is a complete point guard. Quick, great handle, sweet stroke, great vision, and a very strong rebounder for his size. His stat-line had to be flat-out amazing last night. Just a sophomore too.
BCA also has a 6-6 forward named Colin Wilson. He was pretty steady on the inside. He reminded me of a poor man's Gavin Rains (Wheatmore). Late in the game, Wilson caught an alley-oop from Williams that had the BCA fans going crazy.
One bright spot for RM was the play of freshman Cameron Lutterloh. I really liked his aggressiveness.
The girls game was the inverse of the guys. River Mill cruised and won by around 30. RM simply was too big/tall for BCA. Lots of putbacks from Trinity French and Meghan Wilcox. Wilcox is intriguing. She's a freshman that looks to be around 6-4. Build wise, she reminds me of Elissa Cunane when Cunane was a freshman (although Cunane was way more skilled at that point). I'm interested in seeing how she develops.
I did like the play of BCA freshman Anna Hackney. She was fearless.
Random observation: River Mill has really nice bathrooms.
