Chester (15-4, 7-1) clipped the wings of the Chichester Eagles with an easy 69-44 decision at the Clip Joint.
Senior Jordan Camper matched his career high with 22 points to lead the Clippers. He also recorded a double double by cleaning the glass with 10 rebounds and his 4 blocked shots puts his career total at 102 passing Brandon “BJ” Robinson (101) on that list.
The Clippers knocked down three treys to take control in the opening quarter which opened the lane for Jordan (4), Jaimhy Evans (2) and Brian Randolph III (2) to score on the inside. Michael Smith, Ahrod Carter and Jamar Sudan were responsible for the treys. Chester – 19, Chichester – 11. With Smith and now Jah’meir Springfield connecting from long distance, once again the lane was open for Sudan (6), Evans (2) and Timothy Johnston (2) to score. The Clippers were full steam ahead at this point. At the half it was Chester – 37, Chichester – 23.
The heat of the Clip Joint coupled with the defensive heat applied by the Clippers limited the Eagles to an 8 point 3rd quarter while Camper outscored his foes with a 10 point quarter and Chester was out to a 24 point lead. Carter and Smith continued to connect from behind the 3-point line and Chester ended the quarter with a 55-31 advantage. Camper’s fourth dunk and final points of the evening gave the Clippers their biggest margin at 65-33. Larry Yarbray Jr added his name to the list of trey-makers and one of 10 Clippers to score on the night.
Jamar Sudan again joined Camper in the double-double club collecting 10 rebounds to go along with his 11 points. Michael Smith and Ahrod Carter just missed double figures with 9 and 8 points respectively. Jaimhy Evans added 6 points, Larry Yarbray Jr, Jah’meir Springfield and Timothy Johnston each contributed 3 points while Brian Randolph III and Rahmaad DeJarnette completed the scoring with 2 points apiece.
