John Marshall wins Game of the Week

by Matt Lincoln

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - They needed extra time to do it, but John Marshall beat Douglas Freeman in the NBC12 Game of the Week, to take control of the Colonial District.

The Justices won at Freeman High School Friday night 66-63 in overtime.  Tahir Little gave Marshall a five point lead in overtime with a layup and free throw which seemed to effective end the game.  But Freeman completed a four point play with a minute to go to close the gap to one.  Marshall Mundin scored a bucket with five seconds left to put Marshall up three.  Justin Mann's three pointer rimmed out as time expired to give Marshall the victory.

The game started like it would be an easy Marshall victory.  The Justices began the game on a 16-2 run.  But the Rebels answered with a 22-3 streak, and led the game by four at the half.

John Marshall beat Freeman for the second time this year, and now sit one game up in the district with just one week of the regular season left to play.
