Week 6 of the Full Package Fall League saw a plethora of 20-point plus scorers as teams battled to position themselves for the start of playoffs that begin on Sunday. However, 2014 West Chicago wing John Konchar broke out for 34 points in a win. Konchar is generating interest at the Division-2 level right now, and will be a late bloomer to watch this winter. Also, the Blazers Jake Tuttle lit the scoreboard for 30 in his highest scoring game of the fall.
Kings (77) Raptors (56)
The Kings defense locked down league leading scorer Duante Stephens of the Raptors in the first half, holding him to seven points. Though Stephens finished with 26, it was Jawaan Jackson and 2014 6’7” post Jovanni Harrell scoring 22 and 20, respectively, that propelled the Kings offense, benefitting from 2014 point guard Erick Locke’s playmaking.
Clippers (55) Nuggets (41)
The Clippers put their usual three-point barrage on display. Nick Rock netted 19 points to help the Clippers finish the fall 3-3. The Nuggets were led by Josh Wolfe’s 10.
Bobcats (65) Blazers (82)
A breakout 30-point performance by Jake Tuttle gave the Blazers plenty of cushion in their win. The Bobcats balanced attack was led by Mark Gary’s 13.
Celtics (71) Bucks (65)
2016 guard Deon Sams drilled 25 points to help the Julian Torres-less Celtics to a win. The Celtics also received 14 points from 2015 wing Mark Winston in his first action of the fall. Winston will be at Plainfield North, but will not be eligible to play until January. He is one to watch in the class of 2015. The Bucks were led by Ryan Cork and Matt Bridges 18 and 17 points, respectively.
Pistons (68) Rockets (57)
2014 wing John Konchar put on a show en route to 34 points for the Pistons. Opposite Konchar was 2014 wing Chris Bolden of Foreman High School, who dropped in 22 for the Rockets.
Thunder (69) Bulls (57)
The three-point reliant Bulls were not able to shoot themselves out of a loss to the towering Thunder. 2014 6’9” Makur Puou of Mooseheart High School dominated the interior on his way to 26 points for the Thunder. The Bulls Cenar led his group with 24 while Brandon Danowski had a fall high of 20.
Warriors (49) Cavs (36)
The Cavs did a stellar job on defense holding 2015 point guard Nick Coleman to three points, but the Warriors 2015 wing Adrian Pierechanowksi went off for 28 in their win. Alex West and Antwoine Locke each had 10 for the Cavs.
Knicks (68) Hawks (51)
Tyler Lovestrand led all scorers with 22 points for the Knicks. The Hawks were led for the second week in a row by Cameron Krutwig, who had 18.
Suns (62) Lakers (56)
2015 6’7” T.J. Vorva dominated the paint on his way to 17 points for the Suns, who won their first game of the fall. The Lakers were without the services of their own post player in 2016 6’5” forward Lorenzo Edwards as Ryan Ktichel hit for 18 points for the Lakers.
Magic (48) Bobcats (57)
Danny Kim’s 18 points and Andre St. John’s 15 for the Magic were not enough to upend the Bobcats as Jawuan Starlin and Lookman Olowo outscored the pair with 22 and 20 points, respectively, of their own.
Hornets (31) Wizards (48)
The Wizards David Berger was all over the floor on both ends of the court, working his way to 16 points in the Wizards first win of the fall. Terrance Ellis led the Hornets with eight while 6’2” class of 2019 seventh grader Pavle Pantovic made his fall league debut on the Hornets.
