Shaun Willett (193-F) scored 26 points and set a career high with 19 rebounds as the 13th-ranked Queens University of Charlotte men's basketball team (14-2, 6-0 SAC) edged Newberry College (5-7, 1-4 SAC), 96-94, on Wednesday night at Eleazer Arena to claim its ninth straight victory. The Wolves tied the score three times in the second half but led by Willett's NCAA-leading 13th double-double.
Queens jumped out to a 14-point lead in the first half when a three-point play by Kevion Blaylock gave the Royals a 36-22 lead with 6:43 left in the first. However, trailing 38-24, Newberry countered with a 9-0 run capped by a Marquis Collins 3-pointer that cut the Queens lead to five, 38-33, with 4:02 remaining.

The Royals took a two-possession lead into halftime, 49-43.

In the second half, Newberry tied the score for the first time when an Angelo Sales Jr. layup tied the game, 70-70, with 10:07 to play. Moments later, when tied for the second time, 72-72, Queens used a 10-0 run that featured six points from Willett to momentarily seize control with an 82-72 edge with 8:08 to play.

Newberry responded with a 12-2 run that tied the game, 84-84, when Luke Gibson hit a three from the right wing with 5:42 left.

With 15 seconds left on the clock, a Josh Brodowicz free throw gave Queens a 96-94 lead. Queens used one last defensive stop to win the game, after a missed three from Newberry's Tai Giger in the left corner with seven seconds remaining.

Miguel Arnold (180-PG) and the Augusta University men's basketball team took down the Flagler Saints 90-63 in a Peach Belt Conference game at Christenberry Fieldhouse. After the Saints sunk the opening shot of the night, Augusta took over on their home court and owned a halftime lead of 42-30. The lead never changed as the Jags owned a 90-63 final score for their second blowout win in a row. Anrold finished with 11 points.

Xi'an "Bo" Todman and Del Valle HS held off Hays Rebels, 72-65, on Saturday at Bales Gym. Hays (13-11, 2-5 in district play) limited a potent Del Valle offense to 27 points in the first half. Use of a 2-3 zone defense forced Del Valle's offense to attack from the perimeter, which led to success for Hays. Strong rebounding, along with consistent offense, gave Hays an edge in the first two frames. Del Valle led 19-15 in the first quarter, but Hays fought back to take a 31-27 lead at intermission. A technical foul against Hays, which was then shortly followed by an intentional foul, allowed Del Valle to turn the tide and recapture the advantage. A 9-2 Cardinals run helped Del Valle take a 47-42 lead heading into the fourth quarter. Del Valle turned to guards Caleb Harris and Todman to carry the load in the fourth quarter. Todman and Harris combined to score 41 of the Cardinal's 72 total points in the game. Todman scored 13 points in the fourth quarter.
