Goose Creek 39, Wings Academy 38

Goose Creek led by seven points at halftime and had to hold on to reach the Rotary Foundation Bracket final.

With time running out, Wings coach Billy Turnage called three timeouts in approximately 15 seconds, but the Wings settled for a two-point goal when Corey Pierce scored to cut the lead to one with two seconds left. The Gators (9-1) didn't even have to inbound the ball as the last seconds ticked off the clock in a game that had 13 lead changes.

"I was surprised they took three timeouts to get the ball 15 feet up the court," said Goose Creek coach Blake Hall. "But different opinions for different people."

Hall wasn't happy with his team's intensity in a first-round win over West Ashley. But the Gators did a 180 on Day 2.

"I am proud of the way the kids responded today," Hall said. "They were focused and came out ready to compete. We'll learn something about how the team responded playing back-to-back games. Now, we have to be ready for Monday."

The Gators won the game thanks to an 11-1 scoring advantage from its bench and a 7-0 difference in points off turnovers.

Jordan McElveen led the Gators with 11 points, hitting 5 of 10 from the field. He also had five rebounds. Kameron Robinson added nine points and six rebounds for the Gators, who held a 37-34 advantage in rebounding. Dantez Bennamon accounted for seven points, five rebounds and three assists.

Jesse Govan led Wings Academy, 7-3, with 15 points, hitting 6 of 12 from the field and 3 of 3 from the foul line. Ray Pender added nine points and 11 rebounds.

Wings Academy hit only 21 percent from the field in the first half, but warmed up to hit 44 percent of its shots in the last 16 minutes.

St. John's College 65, Wando 60

St. John's College led Wando by 25 points with 15 minutes left in the game, but the Warriors had an impressive rally to cut the lead to three. But St. John's held on to win its eighth game in nine tries. Wando fell to 9-2.

St. John's hit 51 percent from the field to Wando's 33 percent in the first half to take a 43-21 lead. But the Warriors shot 52 percent in the second half to throw a scare into a team that has five players headed to Division I programs next year.

Guard Mike Morsell led the Cadets with 21 points, hitting 8 of 13 from the field. Darian Anderson tallied 11 points and three assists, while Anthony Cowan chipped in with 10 points and two steals.
