Trailing 49-41 with 3:47 to play, Rufus King (8-2) scored the final eight points in regulation to tie the game and send it to the extra frame.  Austin Mitchell-Malone hit a 3-pointer from the left wing at the buzzer with two Bishop Gorman players in his face to tie the score and send it to overtime.

* CPA (TN) 71, Myrtle Beach 63:  The Seahawks (6-6) closed out the Beach Ball Classic on Monday with a loss at the hands of Christ Presbyterian Academy (TN), the second straight hard-fought game against a superior, out-of-state opponent.

After falling 67-61 to Franklin (OH) in the consolation bracket, the Seahawks put up another good fight before going down to the Lions (12-2), who came into the tournament as a possible title contender.

Myrtle Beach ket it close the whole way, cutting the deficit to as close as two points in the second half. Nolin Butler’s 3-pointer with 10 minutes remaining made it a 42-40 contest and Brooks Swanson hit another with 7 minutes left to cut the deficit to 50-47. But CPA went on a 13-4 run to close out the threat.

Butler finished with 14 points and Swanson added 11, but they were unable to hang with the Lions’ hot-handed trip of Jalen Lindsey (22 points), Braxton Blackwell (19) and Jake Allsmiller (14), who combined for 55 of CPA’s 71 points.

* Orem (UT) 63, Spring Valley (SC) 58: The Tigers (6-2) withstood a strong challenge from the Vikings (10-5) to win the consolation bracket of the Beach Ball Classic on Monday.

Spring Valley’s Perry Dozier Jr., who tied Dominique Taylor with a team-high 19 points, hit a jumper with 26 seconds left to cut the deficit to 59-58, but Orem hit its foul shots down the stretch to ice the game.

Orem got a game-high 21 points from Dalton Nixon and teammate Zach Hunsaker added 18. Spring Valley’s Jamil Taborn had a double-double with 10 points and 11 boards.
