Terrell HarperBoys Basketball


Last week: Harper, a 5-foot-11 senior swingman averaging 15.8 points per game, not only found the zone last Saturday, but reveled in it until the final buzzer, scoring 27 of his career-high 32 points in the second half of the Warriors’ come-from-behind 57-55 victory at Black Forest Academy. Harper saved the best for last, according to his coach, Carl Johnson, as Wiesbaden remained unbeaten in Region III. “Black Forest (led by 31 points, 16 rebounds and 11 blocked shots by Eddie Mbanda) played an outstanding game,” Johnson wrote Tuesday in an e-mail, “leading Wiesbaden at times by double digits. “With under a minute left in the game, Wiesbaden was able to take the lead only to see BFA tie it up with eight seconds left. Terrell took the in-bounds pass, dribbled the entire length of the floor and made a layup with two seconds left on the clock.”

Elizabeth StylesGirls Basketball


Last week: Styles, a 5-foot-1 freshman forward averaging 21.3 points in her first five varsity games, scored 35 Friday as the Lady Bucs of Division III stunned defending D-I champ Ramstein 56-49 at Baumholder. The loss was the Lady Royals’ first since 2006. Styles does more than score, Baumholder coach Carter Hollenbeck wrote Wednesday in an e-mail. “She doesn’t rest on defense at all, which is evident from her 6.8 steals per game. Our defense has given up an average of 41 points per game, with five of our (six) opponents being Division I and II schools.” Hollenbeck added that her teammates makes it easier for Styles to score. “What is so special about this team is that Elizabeth is not alone,” he wrote. “We have excellent guards, Katrina Alsup and Veronne Clark, and solid post players, Jasmine Thompson and Alexi Velazquez.”
