PICKERINGTON Upper Arlington and Africentric each made dramatic shots and prolific defensive stops in the aptly named The Classic at Pickerington North on Saturday. The white knuckler came down to a player being in the right spot at the right moment.Will Grabovac grabbed a long rebound after a missed shot by teammate Max Martz and buried a 12 footer as time expired in the second overtime to give Upper Arlington a 55 53 victory before an appreciative nearly full house.>> VIDEO: Watch Will Grabovac’s winning basket in Upper Arlington’s double overtime win over Africentric”I was running the offense, Max tried to make a play, and it just took a good kick right to me,” Grabovac said. “I took a quick look at the clock and just shot it. It felt good leaving my hand.”After James Hodge pulled Africentric even at 53 all with 1:39 left, Upper Arlington held the ball until the 20.5 second mark to scheme a final shot.At the end of regulation, Tre Baumgardner hit a three pointer with 6.8 seconds left to give the Nubians a 51 49 lead. After breaking a press, Casey Jones hit an eight footer to force overtime.Africentric (6 3) won the tip in the first overtime and held for a final shot, but Baumgardner was called for traveling with 2.7 seconds left. UA (10 0) was unable to get off a final shot.The second overtime was a cat and mouse game until Grabovac’s shot went through the net.”Our guys had to battle through a lot of adversity tonight, and I was too stubborn to bail them out of it by calling timeout,” UA coach Tim Casey said. “Hopefully, our guys learned from that experience. I won’t put them through that again, though.”Despite an injured left shoulder, Notre Dame bound Dane Goodwin led the Golden Bears with 16 points.Baumgardner, who has signed with Minnesota, had a fabulous performance with 26 points.”No, we’re not accepting that as a moral victory because we need to get over the hump, and this was an opportunity to win a huge game,” Nubians coach Michael Bates said. “It was a great game full of clutch shots, and they hit the last one.”Hilliard Bradley 60, Northland 40Isaiah Speelman scored 25 points, and Hilliard Bradley’s lockdown defense shone in an impressive win over the 12 time defending City League North champion.The Jaguars, who took control with a 23 4 first half run, are adapting to life without standout senior point guard Braden Norris, who is sidelined until February after surgery for a broken foot.”Initially, maybe we adjusted too much with Braden out,” said Bradley coach Brett Norris, Braden’s father. “We’ve been so fortunate, spoiled maybe, to play with two point guards on the floor, I think it was a bigger mental hurdle than it was systematical. Obviously, a lot of what we do revolves around our point guard. The bottom line is, we want to play the same way we’d play whether Braden’s on the floor or if he’s not. I think we got back to that today.”Matt Allocco added 14 points for Bradley (8 1), which hit four of its six three pointers in its pivotal surge. Allocco has assumed the bulk of Norris’ ball handling duties.”That’s as gratifying a win as we’ve had all season in the way we responded to a poor performance,” Norris said. “We trusted the execution we needed to play and established a pace we’re most effective with.”Jejuan Weatherspoon had 11 points to lead Northland (4 4), which struggled to get open shots.Westerville North 63, Linden 42Guards Julius Brown (16 points), Jeremiah Keene (15) and Julian Malone (10) led the way for North (8 2), which raced to a 10 1 lead and was never challenged.”Defensively, we’re on the top of our game right now,” North coach Shan Trusley said. “That’s been our calling card, especially our on the ball effort and attitude. We’re still searching for a rhythm on offense, but we’ve started to build some confidence as we’ve gotten healthy.”Linden (5 4) has dropped four of its past five games.Groveport 56, Hartley 50Antwon Hampton scored 13 of his game high 18 points in the fourth quarter as Groveport (4 7) scored a mild upset of Hartley (7 3).The Hawks had whittled an 11 point deficit to 39 38 midway through the fourth quarter, but Hampton hit three baskets two of them three pointers in an 11 3 run.”We needed that one bad,” Groveport coach Ryan Grashel said. “We’ve played in four overtime games already and took a tough loss to Newark (Friday). Hopefully, this will serve as a propeller for us. We easily could be 8 3 right now.”
