Jason Massey propels American Heritage past Hialeah Gardens

 

flyon@MiamiHerald.com

With Hialeah Gardens 6-5 scoring machine Adrian Gonzalez having his way against American Heritage, the Patriots turned to their new 6-5 defensive ace, Jason Massey, to put out the fire.

Gonzalez finished with a game-high 22 points, but Massey held Gonzalez in check throughout the fourth quarter as the Patriots (6-1, No. 9 in the RMF Magazine South Florida poll) pulled away from a tenuous 20-17 halftime lead and beat the reigning Class 8A state champion Gladiators 61-48 at the Hoop Exchange Southern Series at Sagemont on Friday night.

“At halftime, we went to a triangle and two; Gonzalez was their main scorer,” Massey said. “I just did what I had to do and stopped him. That gives me the confidence I can guard anybody.”

Massey also came up big on the offensive end after back-to-back baskets by Hialeah Gardens’ Henry Leonardo brought the Gladiators (7-2) within 45-41 with 5:05 left.

Massey scored six of his eight fourth-quarter points to help seal the victory for the Patriots, who host state power Dillard in a highly anticipated district matchup Saturday.

Kobe Eubanks led Heritage with 15 points, Drake Lamont added 14 and Keyshawn Evans scored all 11 of his points in the pivotal second half. Joshua Sanchez had 10 points for the Gladiators.
