MILFORD, Del. -- Rashaun McLemore got hot in the second half, knocking down a pair of critical three pointers to help Notre Dame Academy of Virginia outdistance Life Center, 60-46 on Saturday at the War on the Shore.
Notre Dame, which trailed 17-8 early, closed the first half strong and forged a 21-21 tie at the break. With the game deadlocked at 23, the Dragons made their move thanks in large part to McLemore.
McLemore's back to back three pointers, the second of which came at the 8:40 mark, gave Notre Dame a 40-29 advantage. They were McLemore's only buckets of the second half.
