CENTEREACH, NEW YORK -- Six players scored in double figures to lead Our Savior New American to a 106-69 victory over the Solebury School of New Hope, Pennsylvania.
Don't be deceived by this score. It was only a nine point deficit heading into the four quarter for Solebury. In fact, at one stage late in the third quarter, Solebury was within four points.
But Solebury collapsed under the extreme fullcourt pressure by Our Savior in the fourth quarter. Our Savior outscored Solebury, 41-6 in the final eight minutes of play.
Oumar Sylla led Our Savior with 21 points, many of them on inside post-up moves and followup shots off misses. Gene Selimi added 19 while Konimba Diarra scored 17 in the low post.
In addition for the winners, Walter Murray played briefly in the second half but contributed 12 while D'Andre Brown sparkled in his playing time by scoring 12 points. Juan Palacios shattered a backboard and also scored 10 points for Our Savior.
Robert Legister led Solebury with 24 points while Dan Salvi scored 20 points.
Our Savior led 17-11 after the first quarter, 41-35 at the half and 65-56 entering the fourth quarter.
Our Savior did not use its starting backcourt of Jamar Wilson (seven points) and Murray until the third quarter. Our Savior has an intense travel schedule starting next week. They will play at several top schools in the southern part of the country -- including a trip to Oak Hill Academy, the country's number two ranked team.
