St. Louis powerhouse Vashon (MO) entered Dallas with one goal; make some noise.

After competing against No. 23 South Garland (TX) for four quarters in their backyard, it's safe to say they were heard load and clear.

The Wolverines, headlined by Marion McKinney (Missouri) and junior Cam'Ron Fletcher, were locked and loaded against an uber-talented South Garland bunch led by Division 1 recruits Tyrese Maxey (UK) and Chris Harris Jr (Texas A&M).

The matchup lived up to the hype, and Fletcher impressed everyone.

The 6-foot-6 swingman was everywhere for the Wolverines, racking up 22 points and nine rebounds en route to a 62-59 win over the Colonels. It was a defensive-struggle for much of the contest, and the Wolverines trailed 47-44 heading into the final frame.

Fletcher proved to be too much to contain for South Garland, tipping in the game-deciding basket as the Wolverines stole a three point victory on the road. The top-100 forward should see his recruitment pick up after impressing in front of Kentucky head coach John Calipari.

Vashon senior Donyae McCaskill tallied 14 points, three rebounds and two steals, while McKinney was limited to five points against some nasty defensive pressure.

Vashon will enter the next set of top 50 rankings, and provided they stay healthy, they'll remain a contender for the remainder of the season.
