Two members of Chambers Academy’s state championship boys basketball team have decided to attend college together to continue their educational and basketball careers.

Lemon and Tinsley both had outstanding senior season’s as they led the Rebels to the Class 1A state title. It was the first title in the sport in school history.
Along with the championship, both athletes racked up numerous post-season honors. Tinsley earned second team all-state and first team all-area honors. He was named the AISA Class 1A Final Four MVP and was selected as an AISA all-star. Tinsley averaged 18.6 points per game, along with 7.2 rebounds and 4.3 assists this past season, and his buzzer beating three-pointer gave CA the win over Marengo in the state title game.
Lemon was named as an all-state honorable mention and was second team all-area. He was named to the Final Four All-Tournament Team, even though he played the state championship game with a separated shoulder. He was named to the AISA All-Star team as well. Lemon averaged 13.5 points and 8.3 rebounds per game his senior year.
