Spire Academy is moving on to the quarterfinals of the grind session championship after a 102-67 win over Hillcrest Prep North in the first round, where Lamelo Ball went off in a 42 point explosion. Trinity International come into this game after beating The Rock 82-68 in the first round of the tournament.
While Trinity International is a good team, Spire should be able to win this game relatively easily, especially if Lamelo is able to perform like he did last night. Last night Lamelo was able to score 30 points in just the first half, and as always he did more than just score the basketball, Lamelo found his teammates with precision and was able to give them open looks.
With this being a playoff game, tensions are sure to be high, and talent is not the only thing that defines a basketball team. Spire will have to keep their entire focus on the court so that they earn the championship that they have worked so hard for.
Spire play against Trinity International tonight for a chance to play in the semifinals of the Grind Session Championship, do they have what it takes to get there.
