After underperforming for the large majority of the game, the South Davie boys basketball team got going when it mattered most and blew away Summit 53-32 on the road on Jan. 6.
The third win in a row lifted South to 5-3.
“We didn’t play good,” coach Germain Mayfield said. “In the fourth, we finally showed up. We picked it up on defense and the ball started moving.”
The Tigers led by five after the first quarter, by nine at halftime and by nine at the end of the third. Sparked by AJ Imes and Dallas Simms, they pulled away in the fourth. Imes and Simms combined for 13 of South’s 20 down the stretch. Interestingly enough, Imes did not score in the first three quarters.
Brayden Kistner led South with 12. Simms had 10. Noah Dulin and Imes had 8 apiece. Josiah Spillman and Jayce Bentley had 6 and Brady Everhardt 3.
