Ahmed Hill Leads Warriors over Clippers in Fall League Play
Not long after posting this preview for this Saturday's matchup between Aquinas star Ahmed Hill's Warriors and the Fall League's Clippers, we sensed a buzz among area basketball fans about the matchup. And those in attendance at Evans High School Saturday were not disappointed as the teams battled until overtime in a fast paced, high scoring game.
The highly regarded senior Hill and his future teammate Tamyrick Fields, also a senior, combined for 51 points, including 32 from Hill. And despite 21 points from Laney sophomore Zep Jasper and 15 from his high school teammate junior Jashawn Brooks, the Warriors improved to 3-0 with a 76-73 victory. The Clippers logged their first loss in Fall League play, dropping to 2-1.
Both teams played an additional game later in the session. Stay tuned for highlights and information about the Warriors' matchup with Butler guard Dontae Coleman's Lakers squad and for the scoop on the Clippers' battle with the scrappy Hornets.
