Tournament co-director Rob Flatt told MaxPreps Friday that super sophomore Allonzo Trier exploded for 51 points - 41 in the second half - to spark Tulsa NOAH HomeSchool (Tulsa, Okla.) to a 78-60 victory over Greater Augusta Independent Schools. In an earlier game, Trier, who is ranked among the nation's premier sophomores by MaxPreps, scored 34 points during a 71-52 win against Michigan's St. John's Warriors.

The standout guard now has scored more than 1,000 points both as a freshman and sophomore.

Meanwhile, 6-foot-7 University of North Carolina recruit Justin Jackson, who is the 19th-ranked junior in the nation by MaxPreps, amassed 31 points, 10 rebounds and five assists to lead the defending champion Houston Christian Youth Association (HCYA) to a 68-59 victory over RCHA. He had 31 points in an 83-54 rout of the Cincinnati Trailblazers.
