The 10th Annual Coventry Health Tournament of Champions has come to an end, but not without plenty of fireworks, high-flying action and record breaking performances!    Here is a look at the highlights from this year’s ToC!

WASHINGTON WINS #4!!
The Washington Panthers pulled off the impossible in this year’s ToC!  With a starting lineup of 5’8”, 5’9”, 5’11”, 5’11” and 6’0” the Panthers defeated the Little Rock Baptist Prep Eagles and their 7’3” All-America sophomore Connor Vanover and 7-foot sr. Brandon Vanover, 53-50!   Coach Kevin Brown pushed his team to the very end- as Devin Whitelow and Lou Grffith combined for 41 points in the game.  However, it was the two huge free throws by 5’7” Fr. Peyton Havens that iced the game for the Panthers.

The Panthers then met the Lee Generals from Huntsville, Alabama for the Washington Invitational title.  The game went back and forth between the two teams, before Lou Griffith took control to the tune of 29 points, 8 rebounds and 5 assists.  The freshman Havens hit a hard-nosed, driving layup to once again ice the game for the Panthers.   Griffith was named MVP of the Washington Invitational, as the Panthers captured their fourth ToC championship trophy! 

LA LUMIERE IS FOR REAL!
The Lakers from La Porte, Indiana proved that they will be a strong contender for the 2016 National High School Basketball Title!   The Lakers relied on several different players throughout the National Classic, and showed their incredible depth in doing so.

The Lakers’ 6’7” Jr. Brian Bowen was named MVP of the National Classic, but he received major assistance from Brandon Cyrus, Jeremiah Tilmon, James Banks, Grant Beucler, Isaiah Coleman-Lands, Algevon Eichelberger and 6’0” Fr. Tyger Campbell- who broke the ToC record for most assists (29) in a tournament.

BEST TOC DUO!
The best dynamic duo of the event came from Spain Park, Alabama- 6’10” Jr. Austin Wiley and 6’4” Jr. Jamal Johnson.  This duo was responsible for impressive jumpers, dunks, rebounds, blocked shots and nifty assists.

Wiley averaged 20 points, 13 boards and 5 blocks per game.  Johnson averaged 21 points, 8 rebounds and 6 assists per game.
