Commanders survive sputtering finish for 3rd victory
Dec 18, 2006 12:00 am
WATERTOWN — Friendship Christian's boys survived spotty free-throw shooting in the closing minutes to make their 52-45 win over University School of Nashville that close in the Watertown Chamber of Commerce Christmas Classic.
The Commanders led 25-13 at halftime and were up by 10 with two minutes to play before finishing the game 1-of-7 from the foul line, enabling the Tigers to cut into the lead as Friendship moved to 3-1.
Center Michael Teeter tossed in 18 points and guard Garrett McKnight added 11 for the Commanders.
Friendship will return today for a 3:30 p.m. meeting with Cascade.
Cascade cuts off Fountain as Tigers falter
WATERTOWN — Aaron Fountain has been Watertown's only reliable source for points this season and Cascade cut even him off in the second half of the Champions' 59-29 triumph in the Watertown Chamber of Commerce Christmas Classic on Friday.
Fountain fired in all 15 of his points, including three 3-pointers, in the first half as Watertown trailed 28-19 at halftime. But Cascade trapped Fountain in the second half and all of the Purple Tigers' remaining points came from freshman Nick Lennox, Dalton Phillips (five points apiece) and Ben Smith (four).
Cascade widened the margin to 45-20 going into the fourth quarter as Watertown fell to 3-8.
The Champions' 6-foot-5 post Brandon Hall and guard Stefin Reed each fired in 13 points while Seth Day dropped in 10 from inside.
Watertown will take on University School of Nashville at 6:30 p.m. tonight to wrap up the Classic.
