Simeon Defeats Morgan Park 68-64 To Win City Title

Simeon defeated Morgan Park 68-64 to win the City title in an action-packed All-Red-South final on Sunday night.

Simeon led 24-16 at the end of the 1st quarter. Morgan Park rallied and took a 34-30 lead into halftime. The game went back and forth the rest of the way.

Morgan Park led 64-63 with 1:14 to play, and had the ball ahead of Simeon coming up big on defense and then taking a 65-64 lead 48 seconds to play on a Messiah Jones tip-in.

A pair of Evan Gilyard (UTEP) free throws put Simeon up 67-64 just ahead of Ayo Dosunmu coming up a bit short on a game-tying three-point attempt.

Junior guard Kezo Brown was outstanding en route to scoring a game-high 26 points. Gilyard backed up Brown with 18 points including 10 in the fourth quarter. Talen Horton-Tucker added 13 points and 11 rebounds.

Ayo Dosunmu led Morgan Park with 16 points. He was backed up by 15 points each from Melo Burrell and Lenell Henry. Burrell also grabbed 10 rebounds.
