Bob Jones Wins the Class 6A State Championship

This information was reported Saturday from the AHSAA website:

Class 6A Boys Championship

Bob Jones 61, Homewood 45

            Bob Jones High School Coach Danny Petty became the first prep coach in AHSAA history to win boys state basketball championships at three different schools Saturday night as Bob Jones downed Homewood 61-45 to close out the 2010 Final 48 State Basketball Tournament.

Petty won his first state title as a coach in 1987 when he guided J.O. Johnson to the 6A state crown, then he directed Madison Academy to the Class 3A state championship in 2006. Also as a player, Petty was named MVP of the 1968 Class 4A state champion Lee-Huntsville Generals. Ironically, the Generals won their first state title since that championship earlier Saturday by winning the Class 5A crown.

Saturday night saw the Patriots (20-14) cap an unlikely playoff run with the 16-point win over Homewood (31-5). Bob Jones went into sub-regional play at just 15-14.

Levi Randolph earned MVP honors with 20 points and 11 rebounds in the finals. He was 11-of-15 at the foul line, had six assists and blocked three shots.

Marquis Lindsey added 17 points and Jeffery Moss added 11.

For Homewood, making their second state finals appearance in the last three seasons for Coach Tim Shepler, junior center Jeremy Watson had 15 points, 10 rebounds and hit 7-of-8 at the foul line. Winston Brooks chipped in 12 points.

The Class 6A All-Tourney Team: Levi Randolph, Bob Jones (MVP); Marquis Lindsey, Bob Jones; Jeffery Moss, Bob Jones; Jeremy Watson, Homewood; Winston Brooks, Homewood; Lawyer Lily, Baker; Darren Daniel, Central-Phenix City.
