CBHI: Monacan claims title; South Shore slips past MB

cbhi4South Shore (NY) scored a come-from-behind 46-45 victory over Myrtle Beach (SC) to take home the third place trophy.

Myrtle Beach (8-1) scored the game’s first six points and led by as many as 10 points in the opening half.  South Shore (5-2; Brooklyn, NY), trailing 23-14 with just 1:33 on the clock, scored the final six points of the first half to close the gap to 23-20 at the break.  During the first-half closing run, Selena Philoxy scored four points while her sister Destiny tallied the other pair.

Myrtle Beach continued to hold the advantage and built a 30-24 lead on Nia Sumpter’s old-fashioned three point play with 13:11 to play in regulation.  South Shore then used another run, this time scoring nine unanswered, to take its first lead of the game on Tsahai Corbie’s layup with 10:38 to play.

South Shore continued to hold the lead until the 3:46 mark when Jalah Horton connected on a 3-pointer to tie the game for Myrtle Beach at 37-37.  Following a basket by South Shore’s Diamond Shavis, Horton again connected on a long 3-pointer and Sumpter’s two free throws game Myrtle Beach a 42-39 lead with 3:24 to play.  Valena Hickerson then connected on a 3-pointer and Earlette Scott hit a layup to give South Shore a 44-42 lead with 2:32 to play.

The see-saw battle continued when Horton connected on yet another trey, her third in three minutes of action, to again grab the lead for Myrtle Beach at 45-44 with 2:32 to play.  Following a missed jumper by South Shore’s Fatima and a turnover by Myrtle Beach’s Kiana Adderton, Scott connected on a driving layup with 34 seconds to play to notch what proved to be the game winning basket for South Shore.  Myrtle Beach called a timeout to set the final play but a 3-point attempt by Ivy Collins missed at the buzzer.

In possibly the most even scoring by any team in the history of the CresCom Bank Holiday Invitational, South Shore’s Scott, Valena Hickerson, Selena Philoxy and Destiny Philoxy each posted eight points.  Selena Philoxy also grabbed a team best 11 rebounds.

Myrtle Beach was led by Collins’ 13 points while teammate Sumpter added 11 points and 14 rebounds.

* Monacan (VA) 54, Winder-Barrow (GA) 49: Monacan scored a 54-49 victory over Winder-Barrow to take home the Championship trophy from the 2016 CresCom Bank Holiday Invitational.

The first half proved that fans were in for a battle as the teams switched leads five times and tied the score twice.  At the end of the first 16-minute half, Winder-Barrow held a narrow 23-22 advantage.

In the second half, Winder-Barrow opened a 34-27 advantage on Chellia Watson’s jumper with 12:50 to play.  Monacan erased the lead with an 8-0 run and led by as many eight points as they were able to hold off Winder-Barrow down the stretch.

Tournament MVP and University of Connecticut signee Megan Walker led Monacan with 22 points, seven rebounds and four steals.  Winder-Barrow was led by the nation’s #1 ranked junior and the tourney’s Most Outstanding Player Olivia Nelson-Ododa’s 16 points and 22 rebounds.
