Oak Hill Academy powers through Curie and Southwind at 2012 Hoopfest

E-mail Print PDF

Sindarius Thornwell, who has committed to South Carolina, scored 31 points for Oak Hill against Memphis Southwind Saturday at Marshall County's Hoopfest.DRAFFENVILLE - Making their 14th appearance in the Hoopfest, national powerhouse Oak Hill Academy is always one of the fan favorites showcasing players like Carmelo Anthony, Rajon Rondo and Kevin Durant, just to name a few, throughout Hoopfest history.


Four Oak Hill seniors have already signed in November with major Division I colleges with R.J. Currington (24), still uncommitted at this time. Troy Williams (5) will be heading to Indiana University to play for Tom Crean who was on hand during Friday's evening Hoopfest session to watch his future Hoosier.
Nate Britt (4) has committed to North Carolina, Ike Iroegbu (1) will play for Washington State and Sindarius Thornwell (3) will take his talents to South Carolina.
Since the conclusion of the Hoopfest, Oak Hill has replaced Huntington Prep in the top spot in MaxPreps Academy Top 10 with Huntington Prep dropping to second.
The Warriors tipped it off in the 8:30 game Friday against Curie, Illinois and 6'9" 240 pound junior Cliff Alexander who is considered a five star class of 2014 recruit with several offers on the table.
Oak Hill jumped out to a 19-0 lead before Curie put any points on the board, ending the fourth quarter with a huge 22-6 deficit to the Warriors.
Still shell-shocked in the second quarter, Curie fell behind 46-16 to Oak Hill at the half, losing to the Warriors by a final score of 72-39 despite the efforts of Alexander who scored 26 points, hitting 12 of 14 from the field. Williams led Oak Hill with 16 points followed by Curington with 15.

In Saturday's evening session, Oak Hill tipped it off against Memphis Southwind and University of Missouri bound Johnathan Williams, the 6'9" forward for the Jaguars.
Southwind easily had the best dressed coaching staff at the Hoopfest in their colors of purple and black.
Southwind fell behind 17-10 after the first quarter and trailed 43-24 at halftime but outscored the Warriors 49-46 in the second half. The 19 point halftime deficit was too much to overcome against a team like Oak Hill whose Sindarius Thornwell broke out with a 31 point game, pulling down eight rebounds. Southwind's Johnson, not to be outdone, also had a 31 point game while teammate Williams had a double-double night with 19 points and 13 rebounds.
