Wood Elite Sewer Classic Notes

The Wood Elite Sewer Classic at Etowah on Saturday featured some great matchups and games that featured some of the state's best players and teams. Here are some notes from the day:

  • Buford earned a hard fought win over the hosting Etowah. Senior forward Jackson Houston played very well, scoring the ball in a variety of ways, finishing with 18 points. He knocked down some perimeter shots, had a huge dunk in transition, hit the offensive glass, and finished well around the rim. Sophomore guard Dillon Nixon also provided some heroics knocking down shots in the second half and responding to Etowah runs.

  • Voorhees commit Tim Smith helped his Central Gwinnett squad to a win over Cherokee. He scored 20 points and looked impressive getting to the rim and finishing efficiently. He's a high-ceiling guy that could find some success at the next level for the Tigers.

  • Cherokee 2025 CG Lawrence Sanford has some serious blow-up potential in the 2024 calendar year. While he already has Division I offers, expect his list of schools to skyrocket. He's as quick as they come and can get to his spots whenever he wants. When he's finishing at a high level, he's always a candidate to put up a big number in the scoresheet and is one of the best scoring guards in the Peach.

  • Lanier got a great win over a very solid Sequoyah team and brought a ton of energy in the process. Senior guard Boogie Morgan (Pictured) was a huge difference maker in the second half and really changed the game. He had an early second half dunk that sparked his scoring. He can get after it on the defensive end, which he used to create turnovers and create opportunities in the open floor. He finished with 17 points and was joined by Amari Morgan, Deandre Cowen, & Brandon Lanier in double figures.

  • St. Andrew's School came up from Savannah and got a great win over Kennesaw Mountain. Junior combo guard Zayden Edwards led the way with 20 points and looked impressive getting to the rim and also knocking down shots from three. Senior guard Will Thompson also shot the lights out, connecting on five threes and eventually getting denied the ball full court in the second half. When he can get looks at the rim, he is one of the best pure shooters in the Peach.

  • Furtah Prep senior center Rauan Rodrigues proved that he is a guy that college coaches will want to know. He has elite level size, at 7-feet and has the mobility and athleticism that give him a very high ceiling. He connected on a number of huge dunks and a few other finishes in the second half to help lead Furtah to a win. As he continues to develop his game, he could become a very good player.
