MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. -- JerShon Cobb showed Wednesday why he is an unquestioned go-to player.

"My teammates want to get the ball in my hands with the game on the line," he said. "But really we needed a few defensive stops [tonight]."

Spoken like a cerebral leader, who maintains an A-average and scored 1,280 on the SAT. No surprise he's headed to Northwestern in the fall and Columbia High of Decatur, Ga. will pay for the 29th Beach Ball Classic championship on Thursday night.
