North Augusta—Just past the mid-point of the 2019-20 basketball season Fox Creek head boys coach Andrew Peckham is confident his round ballers can finish strong with the back-half of the region schedule giving the Predators more home games.

As of January 24, the team was 11-11 over-all and 2-2 in the region.

The top scorer on the term is sophomore point guard Jadon Johnson averaging 8.8 points, five rebounds, 1.8 steals and 3.4 assists a game. Senior shooting guard Deavien Scales was leading the team in scoring gat 14.9 points a game including 3.7 rebounds. Senior small forward Justin Freeman was at 8.7 points and six rebounds a game with two steals and assists to his credit each game.

Talented sophomore power forward Chandler O’Bannon is averaging 6.5 points and 7.4 rebounds at the mid-point of the season and senior center Jacoby Johnson is at 4.4 points, 4.4 rebounds per game.

Senior DeMarkus Young has been most effective coming in as the sixth man. He is second on the team in scoring at 12.5 points with 5.5 rebounds and three assists to his credit per game. Junior Trey Butler is averaging 3.4 points and 2.1 rebounds off the bench. A pair of juniors Jordan Carroll and Tyler Stampley are averaging 5.8 and 4,2 of the benches also. Johnson is the starting quarterback on the football team and is a next level prospect for some fortunate college. Scalesd is receiving D2, NAIA, Juco recruiting interest.

“We need to finish strong and cut down on some of our mistakes because our goal is to make the playoffs and get on a run,” said Coach Peckham who has three region titles to his credit while at Fox Creek High School. “We are young this year but improving every time we play.”

Meanwhile the girl’s team under Owen Jacobs is 10-9 and 2-3 heading into the back-half of the region schedule.

The team is led in scoring by Bree Wright with 7.6 points and 7.4 rebounds a game along with senior Keziah McAdoo with 6.5 points and 7.6 rebounds a game. Sophomore Karis Bailey is averaging seven points and 2.5 rebounds a game.

Both teams will be playing region games starting on the 31st at home against Ninety-Six and then Abbeville visits on Feb. 4th.  Then on the 7th Saluda visits for a region game as well.
