Red Bank Boys Hold Off CCS Despite Jackson's 43 Point Outburst, 74-64

Lady Chargers Win Over Lady Lions Behind Moore's 26

There are two stars blooming at Chattanooga Christian, and their names are Momo Moore and Dre Jackson. The two Chargers led their respected teams in scoring Tuesday night as they both showed flashes of what they have to offer in the coming weeks of basketball season. Jackson’s team would fall to the Lions, 64-74, while Moore led her team to a win against the Lady Lions, 66-18. And despite the Chargers splitting the two matchups, it is clear the future is bright at CCS.

The CCS girls’ team would get off to a rocketing start ending the first quarter with a 26-3 lead over Red Bank. This mammoth of a lead would prove to be too big to overcome as the Chargers would go on to win in blowout fashion.

Moore led the way for her Lady Chargers, netting in 26 points, and they all came in a variety of ways. She found her rhythm from deep knocking down three threes in the contest and was aggressive in getting to the paint. She was also quick to get out into transition, where she found herself with several easy layups just by using her speed to get ahead of her opponents. She even at one point during one of these scenarios pulled out a show-stopping move, that got everyone on their feet. Moore had the ball on a fastbreak and decided to jump and go in-between her legs for the layup. The ball went in, and the crowd went berserk. The flashy lay-in by Moore was really the cherry on top of her amazing performance.

The Boys' game between Red Bank and CCS looked to be headed down a similar lop-sided game trajectory, as the Red Bank boys’ team had a 13-point lead going into the half. And they showed no signs of slowing down coming out of the locker room.

The Lions would come out of the half on a, 6-1, run extending their lead to 18. It seemed the Chargers were going to run out of time to get back into the game, but their senior guard, Jackson rose to the occasion. He quickly wiped away Red Bank’s 6-1 run with a 7-0 run on his own. A three, a transition two, and a monstrous dunk. The momentum of the game had just table topped in the Chargers’ favor.

Jackson would continue to be red-hot through the remainder of the third and fourth quarter, but Red Bank always had an answer. The Lions would keep the Chargers at Bay not letting their lead fall to lower than four.

Red Bank’s big wing, Anthony Bronner, played a massive role in holding off the Chargers. Every time they needed a big bucket, Bronner was the guy there to take it and most importantly make it. He had a quiet first half scoring only three points, but exploded onto the scene in the second half, scoring 21 points.

The Lions would also get key contributions from many other players that helped in their win. They would have four players that would end in double digits, and every single player that checked in was able to contribute defensively, except when it came to guarding Jackson.

Jackson would go off for a game-high of 43 points. It did not matter whether there was one, two, or three guys guarding him every shot he got off seemed to go in. During the final minute of the game, when the game was too far out of reach for CCS, Jackson would bury another three. The Red Bank coaching staff and many of the players just put their hands up and smiled. They knew Jackson is that type of player when he gets in a zone, there’s no getting him out of it.
