Jackson-Cartwright, Loyola kick off tournament with win

PALM DESERT - Four star, class of 2014 recruit Parker Jackson-Cartwright didn't score in Los Angeles (Calif.) Loyola's opening round, 84-31, victory over Madison (Miss.) Madison Ridgeland Academy Wednesday night at Palm Desert High. Mainly because he didn't have to.

Jackson-Cartwright was too busy feeding the hot-hand, senior guard Trey Mason. The 6-foot-2 Mason scored 19 first quarter points, most of them coming as the Cubs went on a 27-0 run after trailing 5-0 in the first minute of their game against the Patriots.

Loyola was quick to close the door on any thoughts of a Madison Ridgeland upset as Mason capped off his first quarter scoring barrage with a left-handed, put-back dunk that surprised everyone in attendance, even himself.

Jackson-Cartwright finished the opening period with four assists, three steals, a block, and yes, zero points.

The 5-foot-11 junior cracked the scoring column in the second quarter, as he scored five points, including a 3-pointer from the left wing.

Loyola held a 53-21 advantage at the break.

The Loyola starters made a brief appearance in the third quarter, as Jackson-Cartwright checked out at the five minute mark with a stat line of seven points, eight assists, five steals, four rebounds and only one turnover.

Loyola advanced into the winners bracket of the MaxPreps invitational and will play Chicago (Ill.) De La Salle on Thursday night at 5 p.m. at Cathedral City High. De La Salle is lead by Minnesota-bound guard Alvin Ellis.
