Community Christian (Stockbridge, GA) head coach Linzy Davis was excited about Solomon Tat ’s performance in the early going of this season. Right now, he is ecstatic. Tat has helped Community Christian to a 31-2 overall record, and the only two losses have come without him in the lineup.

Tat is also playing well defensively.
“He’s defending really well,” Davis said. “He’s playing tremendous basketball all around. He’s a big reason why our margin of victory is 18 points. He’s dominating every game. For example, we played this team twice – we won once and we lost once. We had Solomon for the first game and didn’t have him for the second. We beat them by 18 points in the first game and lost by four points in the second. Game in and game out, that’s how much of a difference he makes to our team.”
