Heights' Edwards Scores 32 In 78-75 Win Against Indiana Power

Davis High's Henry Pours In Game-High 47 Points In Loss

Saturday, December 23, 2017 - by special to The Chattanoogan.com

Hamilton Heights couldn’t control Ben Davis’ Aaron Henry, a four-star Michigan State commit, but managed to defeat the defending Class 4A Indiana state champions, 78-75, in the Manual High Extravaganza in Indianapolis, Indiana on Saturday night.

Henry scored a game-high 47 points, including 19 points as the Giants’ rally almost overtook the Hawks. Poor free-throw shooting in the game’s  final three minutes – the Hawks missed the front end of four straight one-and-one’s while the 6-foot-5 Henry kept scoring.

With Heights’ lead down to one point with eight seconds remaining, Tre Edwards made two free throws to push the Hawks’ lead to three.

The Giants, ranked seventh in Indiana, inbounded the ball, but Hamilton Heights’ Wheza Panzo stole a pass to seal the hard-fought victory.

Edwards sparked the Hawks with 32 points. He scored 24 points, including six 3-pointers, in the first half when Heights built a 44-29 lead at the break. Edwards went 5 for 5 from 3-point distance in the second period.

Jordan Rawls scored 24 points for the Hawks and had 11 in the first quarter. Rawls made four 3s.

Heights, which knocked down 12 3s in the game, went into the fourth quarter with a 66-51 advantage.

Voting Lines Are Too Long - And Response

I’ve tried three times this week to vote at the Collegedale early voting place. Each time I’ve been there, the line was not only around the building, but it stretched at least another block (or two) into the adjacent parking lot.
