Boys Win Tournament
Responding to a couple of Kellam High surges with strong runs of their own, the Oaks won the Bishop Sullivan Classic Tuesday night, 68-62. handling pressure down the stretch in a matchup of highly-ranked teams.
Collegiate started with a bang as Mark Madison hit a three and was fouled, making the free throw to give the Oaks a 4-0 lead. They stretched it out during the first quarter, but Kellam came back in the second to take a five-point lead late in the half.
That’s when Collegiate got a key stop, a three, and then with seconds to go Marcus Anderson went the length of the floor for a rim-rocking dunk with just a tick on the clock to knot the game at 37.
Collegiate once again went on a run in the third quarter but the pesky Knights kept hitting threes and scoring on fast breaks. Kellam clawed to a 55-54 lead with just under five minutes to play before Collegiate took control.
In the final four minutes Norfolk Collegiate outscored Kellam 14-7, ending any suspense.
Bash Townes, who started slow, led the Oaks with 21 while Madison and Adam Grant scored 13 apiece. Kyonze Chavis had a big game on the boards and hit for 11.
