The Glynn County Sports Hall of Fame is pleased to announce the Players of the Game from the basketball games between Glynn Academy and Brunswick High Saturday night at the Glynn gym.
The Girls Player of the Game went to Brunswick’s Shakardia Cowart who helped the Lady Pirates to a 50-39 victory over the Lady Terrors. The junior guard scored 10 points to lead a balanced scoring effort by Brunswick while also notching five steals and four assists in the win.
The Boys Player of the Game was Glynn’s Quay Dickens who scored a team-best 16 points to help the Red Terrors to their 51-49 win over the rival Pirates. Dickens, a sophomore guard, made a trio of three-point shots in the second quarter to help the Terrors rebound from their 14-5 deficit after the first period and be within 22-21 at the halftime break.
“Cowart gave the Lady Pirates a steady presence on the court throughout the game,” said Kevin Price, president of the Hall of Fame. “Dickens not only led the Terrors in scoring, but he definitely hit some big shots in that second quarter that quickly got Glynn back in the game after the slow start.”
The Hall of Fame has presented the Player of the Game awards annually since 2015 when it entered a partnership with Glynn County Schools Athletics to recognize outstanding performances by local student-athletes in the BHS-Glynn rivalry games in football, basketball and baseball.
Past winners of the awards in all three sports are listed on the Hall of Fame website under the “Programs” tab on the homepage.
The Glynn County Sports Hall of Fame is a non-profit organization.
