Myrtle Beach is Stephen Clark’s kind of place.
The Douglass sophomore has made 15 3-pointers through two games at the Beach Ball Classic at Myrtle Beach, S.C., carrying the Trojans to a pair of victories in the national tournament.
Douglass routed a local SC team, Socastee, 90-46 in the opener on Monday with Clark pouring in seven 3s in 20 attempts. Dorrian Williams hit three 3s and finished with 20 points and Romond Jenkins logged a double-double with 10 points and 10 boards.
In Wednesday’s second round, the Trojans got 27 from Clark, with an 8-of-12 mark from 3. Williams scored 20 points again, and Jenkins had 15 with eight boards. DeVonte Smith is running the show well, too, averaging 9.5 assists per game.
Douglass will be back in action Thursday at 6 p.m. OKC time against Miller Grove (Ga.), which is ranked No. 3 in the USA Today Super 25 national rankings and No. 7 in the ESPN RISE Fab 50. Miller Grove outscored Washington D.C.-based Gonzaga High 8-0 in overtime for a 67-59 win in Wednesday’s quarterfinals.
