Findlay Prep takes two in Illinois

Scoring takes a dip, but Pilots improve to 6-0

Findlay College Prep has cooled off its scoring barrage when it hit the road this week for the Tournament of Champions in Peoria, Ill.

The defending ESPN national-champion Pilots have kept winning, however, with two victories.

Thursday, Findlay (6-0) defeated IMG Academy of Florida, 81-37, in the first game of the Illinois tournament.

Senior power forward Tristan Thompson led six double-digit Pilots scorers with 17 points, and he grabbed 11 rebounds.

Senior point guard Cory Joseph had an outstanding performance, as usual, with 16 points, 7 assists, 6 rebounds and 5 steals. Senior forward Godwin Okonji limited Stanford commit Dwight Powell.

Today, Findlay beat Carbondale (Ill.) Brehm Prep, 74-59. Joseph led the way with 22 points and 7 rebounds. Thompson had 18 points and 11 boards, and junior guards Jabari Brown (13 points, 6 boards) and Nick Johnson (13 points) chipped in for the Pilots.

Findlay had defeated its first four foes of the season by an average score of 123-78.

The Pilots play Quality Education Academy of North Carolina today in their final game of the Peoria tournament.

Findlay returns home to play Australia Travelers on Wednesday at 7 p.m. at the Henderson International School, then it goes back on the road to play two games in Marshall County, Ky.
