The Patriots picked up a big win on Tuesday December 20th when they knocked off the West Morgan Rebels. The win gives the Patriots momentum heading into the West Point Christmas tournament that starts on December 26th.

Brewer opened the game with back-to-back three point shots by Preston Bryant and John Jay Graves. Ashton Owens cut the score to 6-3 with a three pointer of his own. Bryant extended it back to 9-3 and Haden Holmes added two buckets to make it 13-3. West Morgan got back into the game by trimming the lead t 13-10 thanks to five points from Parker Henson. Graves dropped another shot to make it 15-10 at the end of the first quarter.

Brewer took over in the second quarter as Graves scored five points to help the Patriots take a 23-12 lead. Henson scored five points of his own to trim the lead to 25-17. However, Graves added four more points and Jared Holmes hit a three point shot as the Pats took a 38-24 lead. Jauquez Chairs knocked in a buzzer beating three pointers to trim the lead to 38-27 at the half.

The third quarter featured a lot of defense. Chairs helped cut the lead to 38-31 but the Pats extended it to 42-31 at the end of the third quarter. West Morgan attempted a last ditch comeback in the fourth quarter. Henson and Maurice Gray cut the lead to 46-38. Then Gray, along with Gammon Morgan, knocked in shots to trim the lead to 48-42.
