Oaks Topple Number One, Again

DSC_8075Once again, the Norfolk Collegiate basketball team played the top-ranked team in the region. And, once again, the Oaks emerged on top, defeating Green Run High School Saturday, 68-65, in Virginia Beach. The Stallions came into the game undefeated.

A week earlier, Collegiate dominated top-ranked Cape Henry Collegiate at home.

Senior Adam Grant led Collegiate with 19 points and nine rebounds. Down the stretch, he handled the Green Run press as the Oaks ran out the clock.

Senior Bash Townes, who finished with 15 points, made a pair of free throws with 1.5 seconds left to seal the win. Kile “Air” McNair had another strong game with 13 points.

The Oaks won a hard-fought game 64-53, over Bishop Sullivan on Tuesday after a fractured first half that saw them score only 18 points.

The Oaks are 17-3 on the season and have tough games Friday away at Walsingham, tied for first place in the TCIS, and Saturday at Green Run, the top-ranked school in the area.

Madison scored 32 points and pulled down 21 rebounds. Time and again, she muscled her way to get an errant shot and score.
