It's been decided that this week's CMAC Game of the Week will feature the Aiken Falcons taking on the Taft Senators at 7:30 pm on Friday night!
Aiken (1-11, 1-4) is attempting to put together a good stretch of basketball as they've faced a tough season to this point. Marcus Barton, SR not only leads the Falcons, but the entire CMAC in points per game with 25.8. Hsjani Estee, JR ranks in the CMAC top 5 for rebounds per game (10.8) and for blocks per game (1.7). Head Coach, Ty Cass, will need to have Barton and Estee on top of their game in addition to the rest of the team as they continue to search for their second CMAC win.
Taft (11-1, 4-1) comes into the CMAC Game of the Week ranked #1 in Cincinnati Division 2. Malek Green averages 20.4 points per game while shooting 62.7% and he'll look to lead the Senators as they attempt to keep their hot steak alive! Not to be out-shined, Dashawn Lawrence leads the CMAC with 8.1 assists per game and Vergil Lackey leads the CMAC with 6.7 blocks per game. The well-balanced Taft Senators have state tournament aspirations and will need to stay focused as there's only 5 weeks left in the regular season.
