Team Of The Week: Leadership Academy Lions

With wins last week over defending Class A2 champ Wayne and Global Concepts (VI), Reggie Simmons and his Leadership Academy Lions have a 3-0 record on the season.

By JOHN LIKANJE

They graduated four starters. Only four of their twelve players have previous varsity experience. Despite this, the Leadership Academy Lions are off to another fast start this season with a 3-0 record. After defeating back-to-back Class A2 champion Wayne on the road Tuesday night, 83-72, the Lions traveled to Buffalo on Saturday morning to play the Global Concepts Gators (VI). There, Coach Reggie Simmon’s squad eclipsed the century mark in a 112-63 victory.

Last season, the Lions, who were one of the highest scoring teams in Section V averaging 86.1 points per game, reached the century mark four times, their highest point total being 109 on January third against Wilson (109-92). Five players scored in double figures for the Lions in their victory over the weekend with senior guard Rondell Watson leading the way, netting 33 points. Watson, in his third year of varsity, is averaging 27.3 points per game. First year varsity junior guard Kennyh Hardeman is averaging 18 points per game. This upcoming week, the Leadership Lions have three games: Tuesday night at Monroe at 6:00pm, Friday night at home against Edison Tech at 6:00pm, and Saturday night against Northstar Christian at Bishop Kearney Christmas Showcase. A 7:30 PM tip time is slated at Ed Nietopski Gymnasium.

Brothers Damani Barley and Kaori Barley combined to hit 10 3-pointers and account for 36 points in the win over Edison. Damani, the younger of Barley’s sons on the team, hit five from long range and scored 19 points. Kaori also had five treys and put 17 points in the scorebook. Washington netted 19 as well. This upcoming week, the Eagles have three games: Tuesday night at Wilson at 6:15 PM, Thursday night against NE Douglass at School No. 33 at 6:15 PM, and Saturday afternoon against Nottingham (III) at the Bishop Kearney Christmas Showcase for a 4:00 PM tipoff.
