GMC Prep boys take down rivals

MILLEDGEVILLE — Competing against two strong opponents, Georgia Military College Prep School boys and girls basketball split Friday against Putnam County at home and again on Saturday against Warren County on the road.

Improving to 6-3 on the season, GMC Prep’s boys outplayed Putnam in a 58-48 victory in their first of the two contests on the weekend, only to come back and beat Warren 58-31 a day later.

Bulldogs head coach James Lunsford said he is proud of the way his squad responded after losing to Putnam earlier in the year.

“Putnam was a tough game,” he said. “They played well. They beat us last year, so it was good to beat them.

“I think we made some adjustments, but we haven’t found out what is our best defense. It took us a while, and they played well early. I think Putnam is an excellent team and they had a great game.”

Quatavius Brisco proved to be the deciding factor against the Eagles with 18 points in the contest, shooting 88 percent from the free throw line with six assists.

Dalton Threatt and William Dennis shared 12 points apiece in the game as Threatt knocked down two behind the arc with two assists and adding to the team’s defensive efforts with nine rebounds and a steal.

Scoring a double-double on Friday night, Troy Campfield continued to show his dominance for the Bulldogs with 11 points, 11 rebounds, four assists, four blocks and a steal.

“Troy is playing well, but so is Brisco and Threatt,” Lunsford said. “I just feel like in these last few games since we’ve gotten him back, Threatt has played well. He’s been great for us on and off the court.”

Campfield scored big again against the Screaming Devils of Warren on Saturday with 17 points and four blocks, while Threatt had one of his best defensive efforts this season with four steals.
