The Colorado Hawks had a major impact on the CHSAA Elite 8 yesterday.
Eaglecrest v Regis Jesuit
Xai’Vion Hatch-Jackson (6’1″ 2018 Point Guard) was the unsung impact player in the Eaglecrest v Regis Jesuit game. X came and made several consecutive plays on the defensive side of the floor. His outstanding defense provided extra offensive possessions for Eaglecrest and helped fend off Regis Jesuit. Xai’Vion add five points to his defensive effort.
Cherokee Trail v Rangeview
Despite losing in the Elite 8, David Thornton did everything possible to help Cherokee Trail continue onto the Final Four in the CHSAA playoffs. The 6’6″ Senior Wing scored a game high 26 points, leading a young CT team during the game, but they came up a little short against a tough Rangeview team.
Seniors De’Ron Davis, Jervae Robinson, and Reggie Gibson were impactful in the Overland’s victory over Doherty game. Davis (6’10” PF) scored 22 points, grabbed 10 rebounds, and 3 blocks. He hit a few threes and had several thunderous dunks.
Jervay Robinson (6’2″ CG) chipped in 16 points.
Several young Colorado Hawks added to Overland’s game also. Goy Wong (2018 Forward), Nick Holmes (2017 Wing), Daijon Smith (2018 Guard), and Stephen Hayes (2019 Guard) all added value from the bench for Overland.
