Thursday’s area sports briefs

From staff reportsDecember 20, 2012 

— Jack Graham had 15 points, Adarious Wilson and Sam Greene had 13 apiece, and Brady Smith chipped in with 12 as Bearden (Ten.) got past St. James 70-60 in the semifinals of the Panther Classic on Thursday.

“St. James got behind early in the first half,” Sharks coach Monty Carr said. “We couldn’t overcome a 12-point halftime deficit, even though we outscored them in the second half.

“St. James committed many turnovers early in the game that attributed to the deficit,” Carr added. “As well as very poor ball-handling and decision making. But again, we had a good second half performance but still came up short.”

The Sharks were led by Matt Strange’s game-high 21 points, and Caleb Duggan helped with 12 points.

St. James will take on Oakbrook Prep in the Third Place game on Friday.

“St. James hopes to not only get a win, but hopefully this gets us ready for our region games come January,” Carr said.
