Junior Tyree Crump, who has committed to play for the Georgia Bulldogs following his Bearcats career, hit a school record 55 points Thursday night in Sylvester to lead Bainbridge to a 96-93 overtime victory against the Worth County Rams.
Friday night they defeated the Westover Patriots 72-63 at home behind a 32-point performance by Crump.
The Rams Jamon Moore hit a 3-pointer as the clock ran down in regulation to tie it up 82-82 and send Saturday’s game with Worth County to overtime.
Alferneee Maclemore led the Rams with 34 points. Bearcats coach Rickey McCullough said he could not be prouder of Crump.
“Tyree is a clutch player and he really came through for us Saturday night,” McCullough said. “Alfernee Maclemore is also an outstanding player and we needed all of Tyree’s points to pull out the win. Maclemore is also an outstanding player who is being recruited by Georgia Tech and Georgia.”
Friday night against Westover, the Bearcats were led again by Crump with 32 points.
Trevon Shaw and Malik Middleton were also in double figures with 14 and 12, respectively.
Crump said breaking Davis’s record against Worth County was very special to him
“I have heard a lot about LaRae Davis and I know what a great player he was,” Crump said. “It was an honor to break his record. I hit eight 3-point shots and three of them came in overtime. I was feeling it and had a good shooters touch all night.”
McCullough added, “We also played well Friday night against Westover. It was a true team victory. Everybody contributed. We rebounded well and shot well.”
