A long day for TCHS basketball

 (#2) D.R. Meadows avoids a charge and scores a deuce

The bus hauling the Toombs County basketball teams to Jenkins High School, in Savannah, pulled out of Lyons at 2:45 p.m.  By the time the basketball doubleheader between the two Region 1 AAA teams came to an end in the TCHS gym it was 10:45. Are you confused? Here is the explanation. Toombs County thought the game was scheduled to be played in Savannah. Jenkins thought it was suppose to be staged in Lyons and infact it was. So, the Lady Bulldogs and Bulldogs had to get back on the bus and travel back to Lyons for a doubleheader that started an hour late.

The Lady Bulldogs led Jenkins all the way until the end. Jenkins scored on a layup with eight seconds remaining to win 54-53. The Bulldogs hung around for a half and trailed 33-30 at the break. However, Jenkins went on a 24-3 third quarter run to win 72-56.

Walker leads the nation in rebounding

 Breanna Walker gets the inside position for a rebound 

Toombs County's Breanna Walker has opened up her senior season posting some rather large rebounding totals. Through six games the 6-foot post player is averaging 22.2 rebounds per game and is leading the MaxPreps national statistics by .7 rebounds. Katilin Stephenson, from Quartz Hill, California, is second in the nation with 21.5 boards per game. Watch a Breanna control the glass in 2014 Video and check out her 2013 highlights Video

Breanna opened the season collecting 15 rebounds against Wheeler County and then the next night she tallied 17 more at Jeff Davis and then in the same tourney, in Hazlehurst, she had 19 more against Long County. Walker posted a career-high 35 rebounds in a rematch with Wheeler County in Alamo. She had 28 rebounds in the Lady Bulldogs' first victory of the season at Islands High and secured 19 rebounds at Brantley County.

He is the only coach in history to take two teams to the Final Four for the first and only time. He coached a very tall Florida State squad in 1971-72 and those Seminoles made it to the Final Four.

Florida State beat North Carolina 79-75 in the semifinals and then lost to UCLA 81-76. The Bruins were coached by John Wooden and Bill Walton was the Most Outstanding player of the Final Four. Georgia lost in the semifinals to North Carolina State 67-60 in the Pit in Albuquerque, New Mexico. That N.C. State team beat Houston on the last second dunk by Lorenzo Charles to give coach Jim Valvano his only national title. 

A comeback to remember in Alamo

For the second time in eight days the Toombs County Boys basketball team rallied from a double-digit deficit and defeated Wheeler County.

Dawgs do it again

 Mobley banks in a 3 at the Buzzer

How many coaches have opened up their head coaching careers winning back-to-back overtime games on back-to-back days and then to top it off both games were tied up at the buzzer, at the end of regulation, on 3-point shots that each hit the top of the backboard? The answer has to be one. Chuck Hill. Jalen Mobley banked in a deep, right wing 3-ball to tie Jeff Davis in Hazlehurst and then the Bulldogs held on to win in overtime 62-61. Watch Highlights 

Getting the ball in a position to score was no easy feat. The Dawgs had three seconds to go the length of the court. D.R. Meadows threw the ball in, from the baseline, to Carlos Eason near halfcourt. Eason threw a short pass which Andre Clark had to save near the sideline and once he did that the hero from Friday's overtime win over Wheeler County whipped to ball to Mobley who beat the buzzer with his banker. Clark tied the Wheeler game, at the end of regulation, with a shot which hit the top of the glass after it had hit the front of the rim.

Eason led the Bulldogs with 19 points and 15 rebounds and he scored 13 after halftime. Brandon Dillard came off the bench and tossed in 14 points, Mobley tallied 13 and hit three 3-pointers and Meadows sank an early three and scored 12. Clark chipped in two points and Keshawn Morgan and Darius Scott each scored one.

If not for the dramatic finish, the headline to this game would have been the coaching match up. Coach versus former player. Hill was a starter on some of Donnie Arrington's best teams when he was the head coach of the Bulldogs. Arrington, who left TCHS after the 2007-08 season, went to Effingham County where he took that program to it's highest level in school history. He is now in his first season at Jeff Davis. This was the first time coach Arrington had ever faced a former player.

Arrington's Yellow Jackets have now opened up their season with a pair of overtime losses. JD opened up the season with a 59-55 loss at Telfair. His undersized Jackets trailed 12-9 after the first quarter and 21-19 at half. However, in the second half they began to look like an Arrington coached team. Playing solid defense while creating good shots on offense. Jeff Davis fired in five second half 3-pointers and took a 32-20 lead after three quarters.

Jerrod Sims sank two 3-balls and scored 19 points, Tracy Salem hit a 3-pointer and scored 13 and Keegan Alls came off the bench and fired in two three's and scored 12.

Girls Game- The Lady Bulldogs were missing Demetria Jones, who scored 18 points against Wheeler. She was injured in that game and not able to play against Jeff Davis. The Yellow Jackets won 54-30. Breanna Walker scored 12 points, Dominique Jones eight, Jocelyn Walker five, Joanne Gomez three and Tyara Gaines two.

Coach Hill wins first game as Dawgs rally

For a majority of coach Chuck Hill's first game as head coach of the Toombs County Bulldog Boys basketball team his alma mater trailed Wheeler County on the Toombs County Middle School Gym scoreboard. However, the lead was always within reach with Wheeler leading by six to nine points. Hill extended the late stages of the game by fouling the Bulldogs from Alamo. The Dawgs cut the lead down to three with eight seconds to go in regulation. However, there was a problem. Wheeler had possession of the basketball. No problem. Andre Clark knocked the ball away, D.R. Meadows's 3-pointer hit the iron and bounced out, KeShawn Morgan made a leeping save in the corner to keep the ball from going out of bounds and deflected it back to Clark who launched a three from near the sideline. The shot took a meandering route to the bottom of the net. First the ball hit the front of the iron, then it bounced off the upper part of the backboard before returning to the front of the rim and then finally rattling in to tie the game at 69-all, just a second before the buzzer sounded.

Dawgs struggle to score without Tomond

The Toombs County Bulldogs are playing in the third annual McDonald’s Classic, in Tifton, minus leading scorer Tomond Hampton, who is in Columbus practicing and getting ready to play in the GACA All-Star Football Game on Saturday. The Bulldogs definitely missed their senior leader in a 57-42 loss to Cook County. "Well it was a struggle," said head coach Keary Brownlee. "I told the guys it was going to be along road without Tomond and they played like they needed him. I told some of the guys who don't play a lot that this is your chance to step up and show me that you are ready to get in the rotation and play heavy minutes. However, with Tomond not being there nobody stepped up."

The Bulldogs opened the game playing tough defense and they didn't turn the ball over. However, Toombs didn't play that way the whole first half and Cook took a eight point lead at the break at 22-14. The Bulldogs only scored six points in the third quarter and they didn't really start clicking on offense until the fourth when they tallied 22 points. "In the fourth quarter we played with a little more tenacity," said Brownlee. "We created like six or seven turnovers and we got some layups."

Senior Matthew Hall led TCHS with 12 points, Kenny Goethe hit a 3-pointer and scored nine, Hunter Braddock had seven, Anthony Britt six, Gary Terrell five and Chris Mobley three.

The side story in the game was Brownlee's return to his hometown and the match up with his high school coach. Tommy Blackshear, who was Brownlee's coach at Tift County, is now the head coach at Cook. "Playing against Coach Blackshear and seeing him operate because he did a great job. He kept us off-balance by switching defenses because our guys could never get into the right sets,'" said Brownlee. "It's always fun to go up against a guy like that because you can match wits and see what he is going to do and see if you can adjust to it.".
