Aquille Carr scores 38 as Princeton Day Collapses in second half versus National Christian
The crime-stopper is officially balling again in the DMV and Capitol Hoops went out on friday night to see how he would fair in a tough contest against National Christian Academy.
In the first half Carr had his way scoring 20 points and leading his team to a nine point lead. The second half was a different story though. Carr did score 18 second half points but the rest of the team combined to score only six points in the second half. NCA outscored PDA 47-24 to come back and get the W down at Hayfield High School in Virginia.
Carr looked like his old self, dribbling in and out of traffic, twisting and turning in the air, making acrobatic lay-ups. He drained seven 3-balls and took the ball to the rack with no fear against players over a foot taller than him. He was a bit out of control at times, but that’s Aquille. He’ll sell out a gym, he’ll drop 40, he’ll make the youtube tapes reach outrageous numbers of views, but with that comes a few too many turnovers and perhaps not getting his teammates involved enough. He seemed to have found the right mix last year as he led Patterson High School in Baltimore City from obscurity to state champs. Now it’s PDA coach Van Whitfield’s job to work him into their program while setting the bar high at the same time.
National Christian played a superb second half. They were led by D’neiko Norfleet’s 18 and Jonathan Davis’ 17 points. Zacarry Douglas added 16 and NCA had six players score nine points or more.
