Morrow Wins Tournament

By Brian Paglia


Morrow's Tony Dukes had proved himself a capable go-to scorer for the Mustangs through their first three games, having led the team in scoring in each game. But the Mustangs discovered that when Dukes struggles on some nights, like he did Saturday, others are capable of compensating.

While Clarke Central held Dukes to just seven points, Sean Stringfellow scored 23 points to lead Morrow to a 66-60 victory over Clarke Central in the championship game Saturday of the Arrowhead Classic Thanksgiving Tournament at Morrow. It was the first time in eight years the Mustangs had won the tournament they've hosted for 19 years.

De'Andre Smith added 21 points for Morrow (4-0), while Josh Davis scored 11 and was named to the All-Tournament team.

Dukes was named tournament Most Valuable Player.
