Back On The Winning Track
Hopkins and Champlin Park were playing an even straight up contest until the Rebels began raining threes. First Concordia-Moorhead committed Jordan Reibling nailed a triple then surprising Brandon Davis nailed a pair of threes and Champlin Park took a 28-17 lead. The lead was built to 14 points when Jasper Duberry hit a pull-up triple with Siyani Chambers in his face.
Hopkins closed the gap when they turned the heat up on the defensive end. Buckets in transition from Riley Dearring, Joe Coleman, and Siyani Chambers brought Hopkins within five in the final minute. However, the Royals seemed to get a little comfortable after closing the gap and the Rebel experience took advantage on a driving score from Josh Pella and another three from Duberry.
Hopkins tied the game at 40 on the broad shoulders of Coleman and Marvin Singleton in the second half. Joe made his second triple of the game and had a three point play the hard way attacking the cup, taking the foul, and then hanging to finish. In addition, Singleton exploded from the elbow to the hoop for a score and his rebounding cleared all the Rebel misses.
