W.W. KING STILL HOPING FOR PLAYOFF BERTH

By: Gerald Doolittle

Batesburg-Leesville, S.C. – With two weeks left in regular season play the W.W. King Academy Knights of Coach Jonathan Davis have hopes of making it to the SCISA Class A playoffs.

The 2019-20 season has been a year of much improvement over last year’s 3-14 team where the Knights only averaged 29.47 points a game. With two weeks left in regular season the Knights are 5-9 averaging 43 points per game. Last season the Knights surrendered 48.47 points per game. This season they have surrendered 46.57 per game.

They have recently played two close region games against Newberry Academy and Laurens Academy giving them confidence of possible wins down the stretch against these two opponents to get a good seed for the upcoming region tournament.

The Knights are competing in SCISA Region 1-A where Anderson Christian and Richard Winn Academy are the top two followed by Newberry Academy and Laurens Academy. The Knights have clinched fifth place ahead of Cambridge Academy.

The Knights offense has been sparked by Trevor Fulmer (so) with a 15.33 scoring average and 11.29 rebounds per game. Hagan Williams (sr) with healthy legs this season comes in with a 7.40 scoring average and 5.00 rebounds per game.

The other three starting slots for Coach Davis has been the triple threat from freshmen Colby, Carson and Collin Woodward. The Triplet brothers have shown much maturity from their eighth- grade seasons.

Collin from his point guard slot has a 7.17 scoring average along with 28 assists and 23 steals. He also leads the team with 9 three- point goals. Carson and Colby are shooting guards that can hurt from the three- point area. The two on defense have 18 and 8 steals.

The Knights have improved on their rebounding over last season with 29 boards per game over last season 22 boards per game. Fulmer leads the way with 11 per game. Williams and Collin Woodward follow with 5 per game. Williams and Fulmer lead in blocks with 10 and 5.

Joe Sauls (sr) has been the first man off the bench with a 5- point average. He comes in at point and is a 3-point threat. On defense has tallied 9 steals.

Rounding out the Knights roster are Seth Gross (fr) and Drake Amick (fr) who have had quality playing time. Both are good rebounders. Amick has recorded 5 steals.
