David Fraser finished with a game-high 18 points and 10 rebounds Thursday, helping Laurens to a 59-47 boys basketball victory over Worcester in the opening game of the Lee Fisher Tournament at Davenport.
“David had a big night,” Laurens coach Andy Carr said. “He did a good job inside. Their big man, (Bobby) Rundblad, left the game with an ankle sprain in the first quarter and we were able to take advantage of that inside.”
Mitchell Barra contributed 11 points and 10 rebounds and Ryan Holmes had 14 points for Laurens (2-3, 1-2) in a game that counts in the Tri-Valley League standings.
Jordan Wood hit three three-pointers en route to 15 points for Worcester, which received all 12 of Devin Adams’ points on threes.
Laurens advanced to the championship game against Davenport, which is coached by the tournament’s namesake, at 6:30 p.m. today.
“Lee’s teams are always competitive,” Carr said. “He’s one of the best coaches in area. They play an up-tempo game, so it will be fast-paced. It’s going to be a dogfight.”
Worcester plays Jefferson in the consolation game at 5 p.m. today.
