Leslie McDonald loses in regional finals
Briarcrest Christian had the big-time talent, including a pair of Division 1 college signees in North Carolina-bound guard Leslie McDonald and George Mason signee Johnny Williams.
But it was Terry Tippett's overachieving Evangelical Christian School basketball team that hoisted the Division 2-AA West Region tournament's first-place plaque Friday night after its 51-44 title-game victory over the Saints at St. Benedict.
McDonald's 15 points led defending D2-AA state-champion Briarcrest (20-11), which was looking to earn its fourth West Region championship in seven title-game appearance. (Memphis Commercial Appeal)
