Bass Pro Tournament of Champions:Westbury Christian, TX advances to championship with win over Christ the King

SPRINGFIELD, MO - Westbury Christian rode an incredible offensive performance into the Bass Pro Tournament of Champions title game, as the Houston, TX team shot its way past NYC’s Christ the King High School 90-75. 

Offense was the name of the game from the outset of the contest, as Westbury Christian led 21-14 after one quarter of play.  Devon Turk scored 13 points for Westbury Christian in the first quarter alone (on 5-6 shooting).  The second quarter saw even more offense, as Westbury scored 30 points to increase their halftime lead to 51-37 over Christ the King. 

UConn signee Omar Calhoun was the bright spot for Christ the King in the first half, as he scored 12 points on 3-4 shooting from the field (4-6 free throws).

The game tightened up in the third quarter, as Christ the King outscored Westbury 18-17, yet still trailed 68-55.  Delvin Dickerson and Devon Turk had 26 and 23 points, respectively, for Westbury through three quarters. 

Omar Calhoun had 21 points for Christ the King after three quarters, and was aided by Jon Severe and Isaiah Lewis’ contributions.  Yet, the Westbury offensive attack was too much for the team from Queens, N.Y. 

Westbury cruised to the victory behind 31 points from Delvin Dickerson, 27 from Devon Turk, and 19 points from Baylor commit LJ Rose.  Omar Calhoun once again shined for Christ the King, as he scored 31 points to lead the Royals in scoring.  Isaiah Lewis added 21 points for Christ the King.

Westbury Christian will meet Lincoln for the 2012 Bass Pro Tournament of Champions title at 6:30 p.m. Saturday night, while Christ the King will play Miller Grove (GA) for third place at 5:00 p.m.
