Marrio Dobbins was fouled taking the last shot of the game and hit the second of his three free throws with six-tenths of a second remaining to give Anniston a 45-44 win over Saks Tuesday night.

“Without a doubt he’s the one we want in that pressure situation,” Anniston coach Torry Brown said.

Dobbins, the most veteran of the Bulldogs’ players, scored six of his 11 points in the fourth quarter, but Jakoey Bradford had Anniston’s hottest hand in the fourth with eight of his team-high 14.

SOUTHSIDE – James Riggan was fouled taking a game-winning 3-pointer with one second left and made all three free throws to crush the Yellow Jackets. Riggan, who had a game-high 26 points, was 6-for-6 from the line in the fourth quarter. Oxford led by 10 going into the fourth behind 3-point shooting and tough defense. Eugene Leonard had three 3-pointers among his team-high 16 points.

White Plains 47, Hokes Bluff 43

HOKES BLUFF – Macey Carr made several big plays in the fourth quarter to highlight a game-high 20-point night and Michael McGuirk scored 19 to help the Wildcats score a come-from-behind victory and go to 3-0 in their area. The Wildcats trailed by six after the first quarter but a McGuirk 3-pointer at the buzzer gave them a five-point halftime lead.

“It was just a danged January road win,” White Plains coach Chris Randall said. “Every bucket felt like a touchdown.”

Among Carr’s big plays late in the game were a steal and dunk, bouncing a ball off a defenders back and turning it into a layup, and going back up with a missed free throw.

“It was Macey making plays in the fourth quarter that made the difference,” Randall said. “He was what we thought he’d be all year. We didn’t shoot it great tonight, but we guarded like champs. We won it because of our effort defensively.”

Faith Christian 63, Jacksonville Christian 56

JACKSONVILLE – Jack Sills had 20 points and 15 rebounds and three others scored in double figures as the Lions moved a step closer to a No. 3 seed in their area tournament.

Sills was instrumental on both ends of the floor. Jordan Griswould had 12 points, but coach Brad Yarbrough said “his stat line doesn’t tell his impact on the game. He was all over the place on defense.” Seth Cravens and Michael McGraw both added 11.

Reed Murphy led JCA with 20 points.
