OT Thriller:
In a dramatic conclusion to the Henrico Holiday Hoops Tournament, the Potomac Panthers outlasted the host Warriors, 70-64 in overtime to remain undefeated. Trailing by four entering the fourth quarter, Potomac turned to its outside shooting to topple the reigning AAA State Champs.

For the game, Potomac (10-0) shot 11-of-26 from three-point land and 7-of-14 in the second half. They took the lead for good in overtime with 3.4 seconds remaining after junior point guard Keijon Honore, son of Head Coach Keith Honore, nailed a three-pointer. Honore was one of four players to score in double-figures for the Panthers as he finished up with 10 points.

Off the bench, guard Torrey Dixon, who also played football for the school, scored 16 points with 12 coming from behind the three-point line. Senior wing T.T. Felder recorded a double-double with 13 points and 12 rebounds in 35 minutes of action. George Mason signee Trey Porter added 10 points, nine rebounds and four blocks. As a team, the Panthers made 11-of-12 from the foul line.

Henrico, which dropped to 8-2 overall, sank 8-of-14 from long distance. In fact, the Warriors shot 52% from the floor in the second half after shooting only 35.7% in the first half and trailing by two at the break. Junior shooting guard Ryan Pearson scored a game-high 22 points, converting 5-of-7 from deep, and made three steals. His backcourt mate, Jordan English, had five steals.

Leading scorer De'Monte Buckingham was held to 14 points on 4-of-11 shooting for Henrico. He grabbed eight rebounds and handed out four assists. Matthew Wallace tallied 17 points on 8-of-12 shooting and collected seven rebounds.

Consolation Notes: One game after losing to eventual Champion Potomac by two, the Meadowbrook Monarchs were tripped up again as the Midlothian Trojans edged them in the third place game, 71-68. Korey Turner and Tad Masher scored 20 points apiece to lead Midlothian. Luke Milanovic registered a double-double with 17 points and 18 rebounds while also posting four assists. Sammy Hooper chipped in 14 points and four steals.

Richard Legree scored 16 and senior guard Brandon Cheeks, the team's top scorer on the campaign, was held to 15 points on 6-of-20 shooting while also notching five steals. Tyshawn Jeter finished with a double-double of 12 points and 16 rebounds.

The three-point line proved to be a major difference in the ballgame. Midlothian made 11-of-18 from behind the arc, while Meadowbrook was 4-for-18 in that same category. Additionally, the Monarchs also had 13 more turnovers than assists.

In the fifth place game, Glen Allen had no trouble with Hermitage, prevailing 61-42. The Jaguars were led by junior Grayson Midulla, who ended up with 18 points on 8-fo-14 shooting and six rebounds. Tre'Shawn Blackston contributed 15 points and four steals in support.
