2018 All-Tournament Team

2018 Team and Individual Leaders



West Hancock repeats as tournament champions, wins an instant classic championship over Eureka 49-48.

The West Hancock Titans (13-1) repeated as Macomb-Western Holiday Tournament champs, tipping the Eureka Hornets 49-48 in the title match Saturday night. It is the second tournament championship for the West Hancock co-op, but a first for their veteran head coach Reno Pinkston, who missed the final day of competition last year to attend his son’s wedding.  Recap.


Monmouth-Roseville grabs the 3rd place trophy, Central repeats in 4th place.

For the first time since 2015, Monmouth-Roseville will leave the Macomb-Western Holiday Tournament with a trophy.  The Titans (10-6) took home a 36-29 win over the Camp Point Central Panthers (9-5) in a defensive struggle.  Camp Point Central has been in this situation before.  Just last year, the Panthers made it to the 3rd place game, and just like last year, they fell in the tournament’s penultimate game.  Recap.


Jacksonville wins their second piece of hardware in as many years as they take the 5th place trophy.

This year’s 5th place game was a nail biter that was decided by a couple of unfortunate missed free throws with 0.4 seconds remaining as the Crimsons of Jacksonville (4-10) edged the Farmington Farmers (12-3) by a score of 43-42.  What might be the weirdest stat you hear today is that despite a close game all the way through and a 1-point final score, Jacksonville led wire-to-wire.  Recap.


Abingdon-Avon wins the Consolation Championship with a win over Macomb.

The game had the making of a close game as Macomb (2-10) had a slim 1-point lead at halftime of the consolation championship game.  However, Abingdon-Avon (9-6) would not be denied as they outscored Macomb 25-12 in the final 2 quarters to pull out a 42-30 victory.  A strong shooting performance for A-Town was the difference in the game.  A-Town shot 51.7% from the field compared to 26.8% for Macomb. Recap.
