APEX — South Granville participated in the Middle Creek basketball jamboree June 20. The Vikings traveled to Apex for the event.
South Granville opened with Middle Creek, then took on Millbrook.
“We looked OK against the Mustangs,” South Granville head coach Jake Wohlfeil said. “Millbrook is just a good team,” he later added.
The Vikings looked to senior leaders Micah Jones and Wy’kise Allen early in the game against Millbrook. Kobe Jones, a transfer student, bolstered the inside play for South Granville.
Daniel Morton knocked down a couple of short jumpers to keep the Vikings in the game in the first half. The second half of the game started with Allen on the bench nursing a knee injury. Allen cheered his team on as an ice pack was taped to his knee.
Millbrook then began to have their way inside and pull away from the Vikings.
South Granville could have used the offensive firepower provided by Bobby Pettiford, who was notably absent from the jamboree.
The Vikings could not get the ball to fall and soon faced a big deficit. The clock began to work in Millbrook’s favor as the Vikings tried to make a comeback, but South Granville fell short as time expired.
