Stall boys off to hot start to 2017-18 campaign

North Charleston—The Stall boys’ basketball team had potential in 2016-17, but never put it all together and just missed out on a playoff berth. This season, the Warriors have gotten off to a much better start, winning five of their first seven games and capturing the State Farm Classic Championship.

“Last year we had all the parts, but they never played as a team,” head coach Micheal Breedlove said. “They played more as individuals and didn’t have that camaraderie, and that’s the biggest difference between that team and this team. This team is always together. It’s more of a cohesive unit.”

Stall got a huge boost in the offseason as both junior small forward Romello Grant and junior guard Jalen Bailey transferred in from Military Magnet. Grant leads the team with 26.1 points and 13.1 rebounds per game while Bailey has averaged 13.3 points, 4.2 assists and 3.3 steals.

“They came in and played with us throughout the summer, and that made all of our guys get better,” Breedlove said. “All of them have improved in running the floor, and with the addition of those two guys, we’re even better than I thought we would be.”

Joining them in the starting lineup is senior point guard Bryan Ward, who is near double figures with 9.3 points to go with 4.0 assists and 2.6 steals a night. Junior Tyshon Richardson (9.0 points, 6.3 rebounds) and junior center Seth Rivers (5.9 points, 5.3 rebounds, 1.4 blocks) round out the initial rotation.

Senior Alonzo Jenkins is the first player off the bench while Ronald Dessasure and Vaneil Morehead are both junior reserves. Sophomores Rafael Smith, Anthony Clarke and Latrice Smiley also see action.

The Warriors are in a tough region and will have to compete with Colleton County, who returned five starters, and defending conference champion Berkeley.

“Our thought process is not only to be in the race, but to be at the top of the race. When I took this job a couple years ago, the last region championship for Stall was in 1995. It was my goal to change that. This year we have a really good chance of doing that,” Breedlove said.
