Second-half surge propels Wildcats to 67-40 win over Maranatha
Maranatha played a strong first half, but Renaissance Academy shifted into high gear behind Treamaine Tatum, who scored 15 of his 19 points in the second half, and nine during a 15-0 run which extended the Wildcats’ lead from one point to 16.
Anthony Stover is becoming a scary player. Just a junior, Stover has grown a few inches from last year and is up to 6-foot-10. Who knows how much taller he can get, but his game has improved big-time since last season.

This is one of those moments I’ve been expecting to happen. A classic case of MaxPreps meets HighSchoolSports.net.
The correct game time for Wednesday’s game between Maranatha and Renaissance Academy indeed is at 7:30 p.m. at Maranatha.
MaxPreps, the site everyone normally uses for schedules and stats had the game at 6 p.m. It’s a site that Renaissance Academy coach Sid Cooke likes to refer us to.
HighSchoolSports.net is a site schools are beginning to use instead of sending out hard copies. It had the game at 7:30 p.m., and I couldn’t find information on Maranatha’s site.
Here’s the catch, Maranatha coach Doug Ravasdy has always referred me to MaxPreps for info as well.
Well, at least someone found the correct time for us.
Question: Does Maranatha have a chance of pulling off the upset?
