Dominic Eason Shatters Toombs County Scoring Record in 81-43 Region Victory over Appling County

Lyons, GA. – February 1, 2024 | Head Coach Jared Goodwin

In an unforgettable evening for Toombs County Men’s Basketball, Dominic Eason eclipsed Chuck Hill’s longstanding all-time scoring record of 1,250 points without even realizing he was on the brink of history.

During Tuesday night’s game at Appling County, Dominic showcased his talent as usual, turning the game into an exhilarating display of athleticism with his dunk-dominated performance. His first few baskets, including two dunks, a layup, and another dunk, quickly brought him to the verge of setting the new record. Then, with yet another dunk still in the first quarter, he surpassed Chuck Hill’s record, setting a new benchmark at 1,252 points. Dominic ended the game with an impressive 25 points and 6 rebounds.

A special ceremony is set for Friday night before the game against Tattnall County, where Dominic Eason and Chuck Hill will come together to commemorate this significant milestone in Toombs County Basketball history. Fans are encouraged to attend and celebrate the achievements of these two basketball icons.

The game itself was a triumph for Toombs, who won decisively with a score of 81-43, thanks in part to the team’s total of 13 dunks—10 of which were courtesy of Eason. Marion James contributed 2 dunks, and Juju Cutler added one. Key players included Jesus Quintero with 19 points, 3 rebounds, and 8 assists; Marion James with 13 points and 5 rebounds; and Juju Cutler with 10 points, 7 rebounds, and 6 steals. Parker Stanley, Gavin Fletcher, and Cornelius Bullard also made notable contributions to the team’s victory.

This win advances Toombs County’s record to 19-2 overall and 8-0 in region play. The community is invited to join the celebrations on Friday night, with the girls’ game at 6:00 PM followed by the guys’ at 7:30 PM.
