Hoops - Thaddeus Young's Team Loses

Well, Thaddeus Young and his Mitchell High School mates played for the state title tonight, but unfortunately they werent' able to bring it home. They lost to Liberty 64-60 as Thad was shutdown in the 2nd half with only one point. I didn't listen on the internet, but did look at the play-by-play. Just seemed that he didn't touch the ball much in the 2nd half. His final stat-line was 13 pts (6-10), 1-2 FT, 9 rebounds (3 off), 3 assists, 6 turnovers, 3 steals. From a team perspective, Mitchell had 27 turnovers and only 8 assists, which certainly makes it tough to win. Well, maybe that will make him that much more hungry when he gets to Tech.

In addition, potential recruit Mo Miller lost his bid for a state title as well, and had an off-night, scoring 11 pts on 3-11 from the field, 0-2 from 3pt range, 3 boards, 2 assists, 1 to, 1 steal and 2 blocks.
