2020-21 8th Grade Boys Basketball Tournament the East team wasn’t having it. In what Coach Gardner called the team’s best defensive effort so far this year the East team held onto a 42-39 win to advance to the championship game against Zionsville West. Leading the way defensively was Davin Pearson who held Avon’s leading scoring in check the entire game. Davin also chipped in with 11 points. The east team hit 6 3s, 3 of them coming from Michael Addison (9 points) and 2 huge tri-fectas from Kyson Neddenriep who ended with 7 points.
