MLK Classic VIDEO: Finch Goes Off

Tre Finch goes off for 24 points as Sacramento engineers a comeback to defeat Richmond (Calif.) Salesian in the finale of the MLK Classic.



BERKELEY, Calif. -- Sacramento (Calif.) pulled off a miraculous comeback on Monday against Richmond (Calif.) Salesian in the final game of the 17th annual MLK Classic, led by sophomore guard Tre Finch. The 2016 prospect who has gotten looks from USC, California and Washington, but still doesn't have any scholarship offers. That should change very soon.

Three members of the Golden Bears staff watched Finch and sophomore teammates Christian Terrell and Solomon Young, as they went from eight points down early in the first quarter to tied, 31-31 at halftime, with Finch pouring in a three-pointer just before the buzzer.

With Young dealing with 6-foot-10 UC Irvine commit Jonathan Galloway, he exited with three fouls with 4:44 to go, and the Dragons down 40-35. That lead widened to 52-43, with Finch hitting another trey at the buzzer to mark the end of the third quarter.

With 6:25 left in the game, Finch scored back-to-back buckets to pull Sacramento within five, and then he and Young hit back-to-back threes to bring the Dragons up, 58-54 with 4:05 to go -- a lead they would never relinquish. Finch then took a body check into the table on the near sideline, and iced the game with two free throws, as Sacramento finished off a 68-61 win.

Finch earned Player of the Game honors from Classic organizers, finishing with a team-high 24 points on 8-for-13 shooting, including 4-of-7 from three-point land and 4-of-5 from the free throw line. Finch added two rebounds and two steals in 29 minutes.
