DGB too much as Hillcrest runs past Helias
Sunday, March 4, 2012
ROLLA, Mo. — On Hillcrest’s first possession, Dorial Green-Beckham drilled a 3-pointer. After an ensuing Hillcrest steal, the 6-5 senior slammed home a dunk.
Green-Beckham may have been one of the nation’s top football recruits, but DGB may also stand for Darned Good at Basketball.
“You don’t want a player of that talent to get confident early,” Helias coach Josh Buffington said.
But that’s what happened as Green-Beckham finished with 22 points and eight rebounds Saturday afternoon to lead Hillcrest to a 46-34 victory over Helias in the Class 4 quarterfinals at Missouri S&T.
