Braeshaun Dozier slashes to the hoop as Reagan HS takes on West Stokes HS
The second round of the Frank Spencer Holiday Classic saw more surprising results and one near-rerun of an earlier game in the season.
Both #1 bracket seeds advanced to the championship games, with Forsyth Country Day getting the win over North Davidson, 62-42. FCD was led by SG/SF Andy Bell (SG/SF, 6’3″, 2013), who scored 19 points, while combo guard Jack Young (PG/SG, 6’0″, 2012) added another 11. Forsyth Country Day will face West Forsyth, who won their game over McMichael in a close match, 66-64. Alex McAlister (PF, 6’7″, 2012) was a force for West, pouring in 23 points and was almost perfect from the field. McAlister is a two-sport star, but he’s known for being a high major football prospect, with 16 Division 1 offers already in his back pocket. Quan Mims (PG, 5’9″, 2014) was solid again for McMicheal, scoring 21 points.

Meanwhile, in the Champion bracket, history repeated itself as Raekwon Harney’s (PG, 5’9″, 2013) last second buzzer-beating shot downed Mt. Tabor. Harney hit a buzzer beater to beat Tabor the last time they met, and the win sent #1 bracket seed Winston-Salem Prep to the championship game. Harney is a true point guard with elite ballhandling skills, and has an offer from UNC-Wilmington. Prep was led in scoring by Mike Hughes (SG, 6’2″, 2014), a fluid scorer who pumped in 22 points for the Phoenix.
Prep will face West Stokes, who advanced to the championship after being seeded #7. West Stokes overcame the underdog role for the second game in a row to defeat defending Spencer champion Reagan HS, led by Braeshaun Dozier (PG/SG, 6’1″, 2012), 52-47. Alston Furr led West in scoring with 16 points.
