The Scotts and Blackmons have known each other for years. That's what made the SAC tournament boys championship game so interesting.
The Scotts, Northrop junior twins Bryson and Brenton, have played AAU basketball with Luers sophomore James Blackmon Jr. and for Luers coach James Blackmon Sr.
But that doesn't mean the Scott twins will lord the SAC title over the Blackmons after an 83-73 win over the Knights in the tourney title game Friday at Wayne.
"Just a little bit, but we aren't going to boast about it in (Blackmon Jr's) face," Bryson said. "I love him."
Brenton (31) and Bryson (29) combined to score 60 of Northrop's 83 points. Blackmon Jr. had 23 points, despite sitting out the final four minutes of the game.
"They are such, close friends," Northrop coach Barak Coolman said of the Scott twins and Blackmon Jr. "James and Bryson were together last night. It's always fun when they compete against each other."
Brenton got the Bruins going with 14 points in the third quarter.
"Going against James is always a good challenge for us," Brenton said.
