Titans, Comets face off for 2nd time
by Jazmin Sherard , recruit757
Two Eastern District rivals will faceoff once again Friday evening when Granby travels to Lake Taylor.
Granby and Lake Taylor, two teams who are no strangers to each other, will be meeting center court to fight for a win.
Just a week ago, the Comets and the Titans met in the second round of the Norfolk Scope Holiday Classic, where Lake Taylor overcame a two-point halftime deficit for the win. The Titans defeated the Comets 91-74, moving on to defeat Tallwood 73-59, taking it all.
The burning question is, will the titans crush the comets once more Friday night? If you’re JR. guard Joe Bryant Jr., you’re surely hoping so. With a high 29 points and 10-rebound game last week against the comets, it is very possible that Friday night could end the same way.
Although sporting an 8-6 record, the comets are coming off a pretty sour spree. Losing to not only Lake Taylor in the last week, but both Oscar Smith and Bethel, the comets may have a hard time. However never underestimate the game, for it is very possible that this matchup could end differently for the comets and could possibly be a walk in the park, if the comets play well. With their strong athletic ability across the roster, and the ability to over whelm Lake Taylor in crunch time, the comets have a great chance at a win.
One thing is for sure, both teams have players that are able to start a fire, and add fuel to it as well. You should never overlook players like Givoanni Jones, Jermiah Jenkins and Antwan Epps. All three are great at communicating on the floor, which has been a problem for Lake Taylor in the past. Then of course you have Joe Bryant Jr., who is always preparing for what can happen. Knowing this, Friday evening can turn into a war of basketball.
Weather permitting, the comets and the titans will go head to head Friday evening. For your live updates and scores, be sure to visit Recruit757.com.
