Oak Hill got a surprise six three-pointers from center Keith “Tiny” Gallon to stay unbeaten, defeating nationally-ranked South Atlanta 65-58 in the Spalding Hoophall Classic at Springfield College, Massachusetts.
Oak Hill (21-0) and No. 4 in the USA TODAY Super 25 rankings, used its depth and Gallon’s 22 points, including several shots by him beyond NBA three-point range, to overcome South Atlanta (14-3) and Georgia Tech-bound power forward Derrick Favors, who had 25 points and 17 rebounds, USA Today reported.
“Part of the time, coach told me to go inside, but they had such a good (2-3) zone, I couldn’t go down low and play one-on-one with (Favors),” Gallon told USA Today. “Plus, I was in foul trouble. A lot of people say that I can’t shoot. A couple of our guards stepped up, but a couple of them were missing shots so I put it all on me.”
