Cooper's bucket gives Raptors upset win over Bruins
Perry Cooper scored the biggest bucket of his high school career last night with just three ticks left on the scoreboard clock as Ravenwood (16-9, 8-2 in District 11-AAA) handed Brentwood Bruins (23-2, 9-1) their first district loss of the year, 49-47.
The loss, a disappointment for Brentwood, will have no affect on the district standings after Ravenwood was upset last week by Independence. For the Raptors, the win will be a huge boost as the district tournament approaches. It als locks the Raptors into the second spot in the district for seeding purposes.
Matthew Hailey had 16 points to lead Ravenwood in scoring, while guard Nick Gleason added 10.
The front-line combo of Andy Schumpert and Jacob Adcock led the Bruins in point production with 12 each, and Jack Bautista added 11.
