Bishop Gorman (14-2), which won the 2009 BBC Championship and placed third in 2011, looked ready to walk away with fifth place as the Gaels never trailed in the second half and built leads as large as nine points in the final 16 minutes.

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.
