GMC Prep teams split season openers

MILLEDGEVILLE — High school basketball season is under way in Baldwin County, as Georgia Military Prep School kicked things off locally Saturday on the road, as the boys snagged a victory over Greenbrier and the girls came up short to Thomson.

GMC Prep’s depth earned the boy’s team its first win of the season, overtaking the Wolfpack by a slim 52-51 margin with Brandon Davis’ shot at the buzzer.

“We feel fortunate. We were able to squeak out a win against a 4A school, which is big for us,” James Lunsford, boy’s head coach, said. “We’re real happy with the win; we’re really happy with the first win. We felt like it was probably the most important game early because it was the first game.”

Alex Moss led the Bulldogs in scoring on Saturday with 15 points in the contest, followed by Trevor Tyus with 13 and Quatavius Brisco with 11.

Junior standout Troy Campfield offered two assists in the game, while Brisco finished with 3 three of his own.

“We have a lot of people who can play. That’s going to make this team probably the best team I’ve had at GMC,” Lunsford said. “We need to work on making sure we run our offense a little better and are more selective with our shots. We did well early, but we didn’t do as well as we should have late.”

Campfield, a tall versatile player for the Bulldogs, led the squad defensively with 17 rebounds, three blocks and two steals against Greenbrier, followed by T.J. Lowe-Foston with seven rebounds and three steals.

Giving up 19 points in the fourth quarter, GMC Prep squeaked by a tough Greenbrier team late in the contest.

“We played three quarters of pretty good basketball, but we turned the ball over some at the end, which put them back in it, so that’s something we need to work on,” Lunsford said.
