WHEELING, W.Va., Jan. 5, 2018 -- To say that First Love Christian, which is based in Washington, Pa., gave Findlay Prep all it wanted and then some in Friday's CRC nightcap, would be selling the effort of First Love quite short.
Unintimidated by Findlay Prep's decisive size advantage, First Love Christian attacked Findlay, but in the end, that size advantage was just too much to overcome as the Nevada-based outfit prevailed, 90-75.
First Love Christian led by five at halftime and trailed by only three after three, but Findlay Prep outscored it, 29-17 in the fourth to close out the game.
Bol Bol -- the 7-3 Oregon signee -- was as impressive as his billing in earning game MVP. He scored 34 points, grabbed eight rebounds and swatted seven shots. His most impressive exploit, however, came in the first half when he hit a step-back triple from the corner.
Kyler Edwards supported Bol's effort with 14 points. Reggie Chaney added 12 and Spencer Washington added 10.
First Love Christian received 16 points from both Jason Eubank and Aneury Parra. Shamar Givance and JaMier Fletcher went for 12 and 10, respectively.
The size advantage was further proven through the 41-31 edge that Findlay Prep owned on the glass. Findlay Prep, which got a lot of points in the paint, shot 56 percent from the floor.
