The marquee matchup of the event saw Ledo’s South Kent squad against Tilton. In a game full of stars, Ledo was the best player on the floor. After a slow start that included just one bucket in the first 15 minutes, Ledo rattled off 19 straight points to close the first half, giving South Kent a double-digit lead that it wouldn’t relinquish. When he gets into a rhythm there’s absolutely no stopping him and he proved it on Sunday. His once-inconsistent jumper is now a true weapon to match his dribble-drive attack, and when he’s a willing distributor he only makes himself that much more effective.
