NORTHWEST REGIONAL TOURNAMENT: R.A. Hubbard outlasts tough Falkville squad, advances to 1A Regional final


HANCEVILLE — % Parrish 62, R.A. Hubbard 50: The Tornadoes certainly lived up to their No. 3 ranking on Wednesday, dispatching the Chiefs by 12 points to move on to the Class 1A boys Northwest Regional final.

Parrish (30-1) jumped out to a big lead early and never looked back, scoring plenty of baskets to eventually cut down R.A. Hubbard's season at Wallace State.

Barry Hill was a terror inside for the Tornadoes, as the 6'8 center scored 20 points to go along with 19 rebounds and six blocks. The junior thrilled the crowd in the second quarter with a 360 degree layup off an alley-oop pass.

Hill was helped out by teammates Jermichael Harris and Brandon Sims, who scored 18 and 10 points each, respectively in the win.

The Chiefs' season ends with an 18-7 record.
