By: TBT Staff @thetournament

After watching sluggish starts over each of his team’s first three games, Team Fredette coach Mike Taylor wanted a quicker start from his team in its Regional Championship matchup against Scarlet & Gray.

Mission accomplished.

Team Fredette jumped out to an 11-point halftime lead and didn’t let up in the second half in a 100-78 victory.

“We had to utilize our speed, and that’s what we tried to do from the jump,” said forward Brandon Davies. “We try to make it a point to get going from the jump and maintain that the whole game.”

Jimmer Fredette, TBT’s leading scorer this summer, went 10-for-17 from the field and finished with a game-high 28 points for Team Fredette, which shot 57%.

Ra’Shad James (16 points), Jack Cooley (16 points), Brandon Davies (15 points) and Jordan Crawford (13 points) all reached double figures for the winners.

David Lighty had 16 points to lead the way for Scarlet & Gray, which shot just 27% from three-point range.
