Calhoun County basketball coach Tim Davis felt his son Marcus had a real good practice and may be ready to break out with a good game. That was before Friday night’s game against Charleston Catholic and while the younger Davis did have a good game – 19 points – it was not what his father had imagined.

The elder Davis’ hopes were just a day too soon.

Saturday night the younger Davis broke through in a big way with 41 points in the Red Devils’ 71-60 win over Clarksburg Notre Dame in the consolation round of the Notre Dame Tournament.

The hot-shooting senior came alive in the second quarter when he scored 15 points to lead the Red Devils from a 12-8 deficit to a 34-24 half-time lead.

From there he was on his way hitting from all distances. He had six three-point shots; seven two-point shots and was nine-for-nine from the foul line. His scoring rampage lifted his scoring average to 24.0 per game.

Tristan Harris and Zach Houchin backed Davis in the scoring parade with nine each while Jake Perkins added seven points and 11 rebounds.

For Notre Dame Josh Johnson led the way with 22 while George Seyfert added 19.

In the championship game Charleston Catholic scored a 54-46 win over Weirton Madonna.

Calhoun, now 3-2 on the season, will return to action Wednesday night at Wirt County.
