Havelock basketball teams sweep Jacksonville

Published: Monday, January 14, 2013 at 10:04 AM.

Jacksonville led most of the contest, taking a 19-10 lead at the end of a first quarter in which the Cardinals had six players contribute points. Throughout the second quarter, the Cardinals stayed patient and were able to break Havelock’s 1-2-2 full-court press and built a 32-19 halftime cushion on the back of 5-of-10 shooting from 3-point range and aggressive defensive play from senior Tyler Perry.

Havelock did not help itself in the first half, missing all 15 of its 3-point shot attempts.

With 6:37 left in the third quarter, Cooper cut the deficit to 10 on a pair of free throws, but the Cardinals were able to stay on top going into the fourth quarter.

Back-and-forth play by both teams ended with an eight-point lead for Jacksonville at the start of the fourth quarter, and the Cardinals pushed their lead to 11 early in the final quarter on a 3-point play by Josh Roman.

 Havelock, in desperate need of a spark, found one in sophomore Michael Bowman, who scored four points in 30 seconds to help start the Rams’ rally, which was helped by Jacksonville being in the double bonus with 4:45 left.
