Carmel Christian takes Morrow Shootout title with late flurry

Carmel Christian made a big late flurry to stop Cannon School in the championship game of at the Anthony Morrow Shootout Thursday at Charlotte Latin School.

Carmel won 75-58 and looked like a totally different team than in its semifinal win over JM Robinson Wednesday.

Carmel jumped out to a 23-9 and Cannon rallied behind hot-shooting Austin Swartz and took a fourth quarter lead. That’s when Jaeden Mustaf, tournament MVP, took over the game with a flurry of tough layups and Cannon’s shots finally stopped falling.

Carmel beat Cannon for the second time this year, after winning 79-63 at home in November.
