Eielson and Hutch split Aurora Conference Double-header; Jerimiah Brown earns 1,000th career point

By  | 

FAIRBANKS, Alaska - There were two conference Double-headers taking place just outside of city limits last night.
Out on Eielson Air Force Base the Eielson Ravens hosted the Hutchison Hawks in an Aurora Conference Twin Bill.
The Girls game saw the Hawks take home a 49-32 victory.
Brooke Carter led the Hawks in scoring with 12 points, the majority of which came from her three 3-point shots.
The Hutchison Girls are now 12-5 overall and 4-4 in the Aurora Conference while the Ravens fall to 3-18 overall and 2-7 in Conference play.
The Battle of the Birds continued with the boy's game, which saw the roles reversed as the Ravens won 83-55.
Matthew Scarboro led the Ravens with 23 points, while Christian Bolten and Brock Renson each scored 14.
The Hawks were led by Deion Frank, who finished with 14 points.
The Dirty Birds are now 15-8 overall and 5-3 in Conference play while the Hawks fall to 10-11 overall and 2-7 in the conference.
The big star of the night was Eielson Senior Jerimiah Brown.
The Senior Guard came into last night's game only four points away from 1,000 in his career.
He hit the thousand point mark very early in the first quarter and his coach Colten Growden, who was the last Raven to break 1,000, burned a timeout to present him with a special plaque celebrating his achievement.
While the coaches, fans, and even the referees knew that the celebration was going to happen, Brown was totally surprised.
Jerimiah Brown; Scored 1,000th Career Point>>: "I was wondering. I was like, 'Why'd he call timeout?' And then it was like, oh wow. Like I didn't realize... I knew I was close but didn't know I was that close. I had no idea. It's a great honor, I'm glad I get to share it with coach and I was just not expecting it at all. Since day one we've been improving so much. Especially since we went to A-C-S and didn't have a very good showing. That really like, punched us in the mouth and now we've gotten so much better and better. I think we've got a really good shot and we're going to shock some people at state."
