Zion Lutheran basketball upsets Pines Charter at Kreul Showcase

If Class 6A contender Pines Charter didn’t know about unsung Zion Lutheran guard Brandon Bornelus before the Kreul Showcase at Monarch on Friday, it does now.

While the game pitted two of Florida’s biggest stars in Pines Charter 6-5 swingman Haanif Cheatham, a Marquette signee, and Zion Lutheran 6-8 forward Keith Stone, a Florida commit, it was Bornelus who stole the show in Zion’s come-from-behind 59-53 upset victory.

Bornelus scored 17 points, including five three-pointers, and proved to be the game’s biggest difference-maker at the guard position.

“Brandon is an exceptional shooter,” Zion coach John Guion said. “He missed his first shot, but we kept going to him on the same play and he started to fill it up in the second quarter with three three-pointers to give us a nine-point lead going into halftime.

“Overall, we had to limit our turnovers, keep Pines Charter out of transiton and dictate the tempo of the game. Our kids really stuck to the game plan of what we were trying to do.”

An underrated Zion Lutheran defense held Cheatham to 12 points.

Stone, on the other hand, finished with a game-high 19 points and helped seal the outcome with a steal and four consecutive free throws with under one minute left.

Zion 6-6 center Kevin Dailey added 13 points to help a frontline with Stone dominate its Charter counterparts
