The Centennial Jr Knights vs North Gwinnett Bulldogs 8th grade matchup evening could’ve very well been an NBA Finals game with the atmosphere it brought to SSA on Sunday afternoon. The Knights came in with an undefeated record of 5-0 while the Bulldogs were trying not to fall to 3-3. The game went down to the wire as J.J. Gallagher hit a big 3-pointer to bring the Bulldogs working one with just seconds left on the clock. The Jr Knights would hang on to win in this thriller but both teams had a lot to be proud of. Kamden Stone (pictured) had a really nice outing from the point guard position, finishing with 11poija and several assists. He controlled the ball well down the stretch and helped Centennial secure the win and remain unbeaten.
