Opening Run Fuels Oak Hill
It might have been a pre-season exhibition game, but Steve Smith's Warriors slapped a patented Oak Hill run on Hargrave Military Academy that fueled their 105-93 win. Oak Hill used an 18-0 run to start the game and won the first 20-minute half 54-37.
Scrimmage rules said the two teams would play a pair of 20 minute halves and reset the score at the beginning of the second half. Unofficially, we've added up the scores of each half and came out with a winner. A third 20-minute half with a running clock was also played but it gave guys who might not have gotten much burn in the first two halves a chance to play.
In the second half, Hargrave got the fast start and went up on the home team early. Mike Preston's bunch held on to win the half 56-51.
Dion Dacons was the high scorer for the day with 30 points. Three Oak Hill players went for 20 or more as Marcus Williams scored 21 and Ivan Harris hit for 20. Junior Isaiah Swann scored 14 points and had 10 rebounds (Oak Hill scorers credited him with 17 points, we charted him for 14).
