Samuel Brazeal awarded MVP of TCAF All-Star Basketball Game after pouring in 27 points

STAFF REPORTS

Community Christian School all-state basketball players Isaiah Brazeal and Samuel Brazeal each participated on the Region I team at the Texas Christian Athletic Fellowship All-Star Basketball Game, which was played last week.

The Region 1 team defeated the Region 2 team, 70-56.

Isaiah won the tip off and scored the first points of the game.

The Region 1 Team went up 7-1 early with Samuel scoring four points and Isaiah adding three.

Their other teammates from Azle Christian, Lewisville Temple Christian, Joshua Christian and Grace Christian worked together to outscore the team from Region 2.

Isaiah had 13 points while Sammy put up a solid 27 points.  

Isaiah missed most of the third quarter due to foul trouble.  

Samuel, who rarely left the floor, was selected Most Valuable Player of the game.

“This was a great finish to a good basketball season for these two juniors,” Warriors head coach Doug Jefferson said.

Samuel Brazeal accepted his MVP award in humble fashion.

“It was honor to play with all of these all stars,” Samuel Brazeal said. “Our team hustled really well. I was honored to be selected as MVP and give the credit to my team and God.”

Isaiah Brazeal said he gained confidence playing with and against the TCAF’s top basketball talent.

“Playing with these guys honestly excited me about next year’s season,” Isaiah Brazeal said. “We are looking good for next year.”

Jefferson is also looking forward to next year.

“We as a school are very proud of Samuel and Isaiah,” the coach said. “These two cousins bring a lot to our school both on and off the court.

“They are well-rounded young men. This was the perfect way to wrap up such a good season.

“Next year we have the possibility of going deep into the playoffs in both basketball and football.

“Now if we can find a point guard to replace senior Bradley Norman we will be a solid team. We have a good shooting guard and Isaiah and Samuel take care of the paint on both ends.

“We just need to create or find point guard and next year will be even better then this year.”

Region 2 led 17-13 after the first quarter, but Region 1 went on a 21-13 run in the second period to take a 34-30 lead at the half.

In the third quarter, Region 1 outscored Region 2, 17-8, to take a 51-38 lead into the fourth quarter.
