2013 Nike EYBL Peach Jam: Saturday Morning Recap

The final set of round robin games had major implications to who went home, and who moved on at the Peach Jam.

Heading into the day needing a win, and some help, Team Final got both as they beat Mokan Elite 64-54. Ja'Quan Newton struggled through a 3-10 performance from the field to finish with 12 points, 4 assists, 3 rebounds and 4 turnovers. Malachi Richardson and Mikal Bridges both struggled as well going 3-7 and 3-10 from the field respectively. Richardson finished with 10 points, 2 assists and 2 rebounds while Bridges had 8 points, 5 rebounds and 3 steals.

Team Takeover is heading home early after falling to E1T1 Elite 73-60. Takeover would have won their pool with a win, but came out hard luck losers. Phil Booth finished with 13 points, 3 rebounds and 1 assist on 4-11 shooting in the loss. Martin Geben, who recently included Villanova in his final 4, finished with 8 points and 2 rebounds in just 15 minutes. Marcus Derrickson was held off the scoresheet in just 7 minutes.

Robert Johnson appears to be the shooter that Villanova fans are craving. Johnson was sensational again for Boo Williams in their narrow loss to Jackson Tigers, dropping 24 points and 3 assists on 4-9 shooting from behind the arc. While Johnson needed a lot of shots to get his points at the Peach Jam, he appeared to be one of the only willing offensive options on his team, so volume is understandable.

In Spiece Indy Heat's loss to NY Lightning, Jonathan Wilkins' again wasn't much of a factor, going for 4 points and 2 rebounds in 11 minutes.

Play continues tonight with the quarterfinals at 7:30, with only Team Final making the cut. Matchups should be released soon.
