Friends' Central beats GA in Kobe Classic

 By Rick O’BrienINQUIRER STAFF WRITER             It was quite a weekend for Friends’ Central.            The Phoenix followed a key league win over Abington Friends yesterday with a 64-51 triumph against Germantown Academy today in Game 2 of the 11th annual Kobe Bryant/Philly.Com/Rally Classic at Widener University.            Amile Jefferson, a 6-foot-7, 190-pound junior forward, led Friends’ Central with 18 points and 15 rebounds. Senior Dominic Morris, a Boston University recruit, chipped in with 14 points, 13 boards and two steals.            It was a 28-28 contest at intermission. Fueled by switch to a man-to-man defense, Friends’ Central (15-2, 4-0 Friends Schools League) built a five-point advantage (43-38) by the end of the third quarter.            Bucknell-bound Cameron Ayers paced GA (11-5, 2-2) with a game-high 20 points, seven rebounds and three steals. Like Jefferson, he was selected his team’s most valuable player.Germantown Academy 14 14 10 13-51Friends’ Central 8 20 15 21 64GA: Austin Curry 13, Jim Hammer 5, Cameron Ayers 20, Greg Guers 2, Jake Beil 6, Beau Jones 3, Nicholas Linder 2.
