Tvilum/Sentara takes Industrial League title / February 27, 2020

Building upon a 58-29 first-half lead No. 1 seed Tvilum/Sentara would post an additional 59 points in the second half of play and go on to claim the 2020 Business & Industrial Basketball League Tournament Championship over two-seed Eaton Corp., 117-76 Sunday in South Boston.

Tevin Edmonds paced Sentara with 48 points. Edmonds was also named the league’s season scoring champion averaging 21.3 points per game.

Joining Edmonds in double figures in the championship game were teammates Demetrius Burwell with 26 points, Jonathan Smalls (19), David Garner (14) and Kerrell McCargo posting 10 points. Burwell also led the league on the season in free-throws going 86.67 percent from the charity line.

Tvilum/Sentara was three-of-four at the line in the first half. The team totaled seven-of-ten from the stripe.

Michael Hatcher with 35-game points led Eaton on the evening as the team posted 47 second half points attempting to rally in the title game. Hatcher drilled 10 of the 11 treys scored by Eaton, eight coming in the second frame.

Eaton’s Marquis Younger knocked down 14 points while co-player Dewayne Wilson contributed nine-points. Eaton was three-of-11 on the night at the foul line.

Other players scoring for Eaton were Dustin LaClair and Abraham Montanez, with five points each. Steven Hatcher and Anthony Russell rounded out the scoring with four apiece.

AWNC-I takes third place with 56-36 win over Polywood

Terrance Calloway posted 18 points as five-seed AWNC-I defeated six-seed Polywood 56-36 in the consolation game to take third place in the 2020 Business & Industrial Basketball League.

AWNC-I dropped in 13 first-half points. The team improved upon that in the second frame scoring 33 – aided by eight second-half three-pointers.

Only down by 10 points as the second half started, Polywood could never muster the offense to overcome their opponents.

Going two-of-11 on the night on free-throws didn’t help Polywood’s cause either as the team tried to narrow the first-half margin.

Aaron Downy posted 16 points for Polywood; James Thompson contributed 11 points.

AWNC-I: T. Calloway 18, J. Quick 9, G. Barley 7, J. Crews 6, C. Burton 6, R. Link 2, C. Waddell 2.

Polywood: A. Downy 16, J. Thompson 11, T. Boyd 5, W. Hughes 4.
