The Covington News - - SPORTS -

The East­side boys bas­ket­ball team has started off 3-0 thus far this sea­son, some­thing the Ea­gles have failed to do over the past sev­eral years.

On Satur­day, East­side head coach Michael Ger­ald and his squad walked away with the Pope Tour­na­ment Cham­pi­onship, set­ting the tone for what should be an ex­cit­ing year of bas­ket­ball.

Last week the Ea­gles de­feated Brook­wood 49-46 be­fore beat­ing Chapel Hill 66-62 in a thrilling over­time vic­tory. Dur­ing the finale, East­side topped North Springs 57-53 to cap­ture the ti­tle.

Ar­tis Clan­ton led the way for the Ea­gles, av­er­ag­ing 17.7 points and 10.0 re­bounds per game.

Cameron Robin­son av­er­aged 13.3 points, while Neil La­ti­more added 8.7 points and 2.0 steals per game. Rashad Hill led the Ea­gles with 12 as­sists dur­ing the three-game tour­na­ment.
