CBHI Roundup: SC teams Dreher, O-W in semifinals

cbhi-32sDreher (Columbia, SC) held the lead for just 3:42, and the last two seconds were the most important.  Kaydra Duckett’s one-handed tip-in with 2.4 seconds remaining in overtime gave Dreher a 72-70 quarterfinal victory over Heathwood Hall (Columbia, SC).  The win sends Dreher into the semifinal round to face the winner of the Edgewater and Greenwood contest.

Heathwood Hall (5-1) looked to be ready to move into the semis as the Highlanders held a 56-50 advantage with 4:2 remaining in regulation.  The lead was quickly erased as Dreher (7-0) tallied eight unanswered points to take a 58-56 lead on Duckett’s driving layup with 2:27 on the clock.  A’ja Wilson tied the game just 10 seconds later from the free throw line and then regained the lead for Heathwood Hall on another pair of freebies with 1:01 remaining in regulation.  Dreher’s Shaniqwa Hopkins knotted the score at 60-60 on two free throws with 53 seconds on the clock.  Following a missed jumper by Heathwood Hall’s Victoria Dickerson, Dreher held the ball for a final shot but Duckett’s short jumper was wide right to send the game into the extra frame.

In overtime, Dreher never trailed as Chelsea Wilson scored the first two points just 13 seconds into overtime.  Heathwood Hall would tie the game several times in the extra sessions and Gadsen Lefft’s layup with 34 seconds remaining tied the game at 70-70.  Following a turnover by Dreher’s Hopkins, Chelsea Joseph missed a pair of free throws to keep the game tied.  Dreher then ran the clock down once again and Hopkins layup with three seconds remaining rolled off the right side of the rim.  Duckett jumped over everyone and tipped the ball through the net with 2.4 seconds on the clock as Heathwood Hall quickly called a timeout.  The Highlanders attempted a long pass to Wilson but it was batted away into the hands of Heathwood Hall’s Joseph.  Her shot hit off of the back of the rim and was rebounded by Duckett to secure the victory for the Blue Devils.

Duckett paced Dreher with 25 points, six rebounds, five assists and five steals.  Jhileiya Dunlap added 17 points and nine rebounds for the Blue Devils while Hopkins chipped in with 16 points and eight boards.

Wilson, considered the #1 high school senior in the nation, led all scorers with 40 points and added 18 rebounds.  The 40 points is the third best scoring game in CBHI history.

* Orangeburg-Wilkinson (Orangeburg, SC) advanced into the semifinal round of the 2013 CresCom Bank Holiday Invitational with a 63-40 victory over St. Joseph Central Catholic (Huntington, WV) on Thursday.  The Bruins will face Miami (FL) Senior for a chance to play for the title.

Orangeburg-Wilkinson (7-0) took the lead for good less than five minutes into the contest and went on to lead by as many as 24 in the second half.  The Bruins connected on 55.6 percent (25-45) from the field for the game, while St. Joseph (5-2) connected on just 25 percent (13-52).  The Fighting Irish, which made a living behind the 3-point arc in their opener on Tuesday, connected on just 5-of-29 from beyond the arc against a very active Bruins defense.

Dejoria Howard led Orangeburg-Wilkinson with 14 points and 22 rebounds, tying her for the third most rebounds in a game in tournament history.  The Bruins outrebounded St. Joseph 50-14.  Vondria Ritter led all scorers with 18 points for the Bruins.

* Making their fifth trip to Myrtle Beach, the Stingarees of Miami (FL) Senior advanced to their second semifinal round with a 56-38 victory over the Northwood Academy Chargers (North Charleston, SC).

Miami Senior (13-0) advanced to the semifinal round back in 2003, the school’s first trip to the CresCom Bank Holiday Invitational, losing in that contest and eventually placing fourth in the event.  The Stingarees are playing in their third straight CBHI and won the consolation bracket championship in 2012.

Miami Senior led all but 1:27 of the contest against Northwood Academy (7-2) and led by as many as 20 in the second half.  Beatrice Mompremier led the Stingarees with 16 points, 13 rebounds and five blocked shots.  Amanda Mendoze added 13 points for Miami Senior.

Northwood Academy was paced by Amber Campbell’s 13 points.

* Scott County (Georgetown, KY) led by as many as 13 and by nine points with just four minutes to play before having to hold off Jackson County (Gainesboro, TN) for a 64-58 victory in the consolation bracket.

Scott County (3-3) used its aggressive style of play to open a 28-15 lead with 2:09 to play in the opening half.  Jackson County (10-2) connected on just 30.4 percent (7-23) of its shots in the opening half but Jaycee Coe netted the final three points of the half on an old-fashioned three point play to pull the Blue Devils to within eight points at 28-20 at the break.

Jackson County’s Kassidy Allen and Coe led a late surge by the Blue Devils as she scored six consecutive points to cut the Scott County lead from 11 points to just three at 49-46 with 2:52 to play.  During the run, Kassidy connected on three consecutive driving layups.  After the teams traded baskets, Jackson County began sending the Cardinals to the free throw line and they connected on 11-of-12 from the charity stripe in the final 2:11 to secure the victory.

Scott County was led with 17 points each by Danielle DeFoor and Tereka Guyn.  Rachel Young added 13 points for the Cardinals.

Coe paced all scorers in leading Jackson County with 28 points while Allen chipped in with 16 points and seven rebounds.

* The William Fleming Colonels (Roanoke, VA) scored early and often in defeating Atlantic (Port Orange,FL) 80-34.  Fleming (4-2) forced the Sharks (5-6) into 33 turnovers and held them to just 22.2 percent (10-45) from the field.

Gracie Doane led William Fleming with 18 points and four steals, while Keashe Lee added 14 points.  Brittany Shaw led Atlantic with 13 points.
