cbhiSt. Francis (GA) used a strong second half to cruise to a 77-66 victory over Lake Highland Prep (FL) and capture the 2015 Crescom Bank Holiday Invitational Championship.

Leading 35-33 at halftime, St. Francis (12-0; Alpharetta, GA) opened the second half with a 21-4 run to open a commanding 56-37 lead with 9:49 to play.  That run proved to be enough for the title as the Knights cruised to the win.

* St. Mary’s Catholic (CD) defeated Myrtle Beach (SC) 45-39 to take home third place in the 2015 Crescom Bank Holiday Invitational, while the Lady Seahawks posted their best finish in the 17-year history of the tournament in fourth.

Myrtle Beach (11-2) scored the first six points of the game and held the advantage until the 6:21 mark of the opening half when St. Mary’s (39-2; Hamilton, Ontario, Canada) Mackenzie Trpcic connected on a long 3-point field goal and tie the game at 14-14.

After trading baskets, St. Mary’s took the lead for good on a 3-point basket by Julia Hanaka at the 5:24 mark and went on to lead 26-21 at the break. The second half saw St. Mary’s dominate much of the play as the Crusaders built leads as large as 10 points late in the contest.

Trpcic posted a game-high 21 points to lead St. Mary’s.  Myrtle Beach was led with 12 points by Nia Sumpter.

* Providence Day (NC) took over the game in the second half before having to hold off Archer (GA) for a 38-31 victory in the fifth place game of the 2015 Crescom Bank Holiday Invitational.

Providence Day (12-1; Charlotte, NC) held a slim 19-18 advantage at halftime and scored the first six points of the second half to open a 25-18 advantage on a pair of Emilie Smith free throws with 10:30 to play.  The Chargers held a 10-point lead at 34-24 with 4:29 on the clock when Archer (10-2; Lawrenceville, GA) scored five straight points to close the gap.

Janelle Bailey then connected on a driving layup and Erin Whalen hit two free throws to stretch the lead to 38-29 with under a minute to play and put the game away.

* Christ the King (NY) defeated Lower Richland (SC) 54-47 to earn the consolation bracket championship at the 2015 Crescom Bank Holiday Invitational.

Lower Richland (6-6; Hopkins, SC) played in the consolation title game despite losing the previous game because Norcross (GA), which scored a 59-35 victory over Lower Richland, could not play due to a scheduling issue. Christ the King (6-2; Middle Village, NY) led the entire game.
