Chapel Hill made their only 3-pointer of the game count as Gabriel Robinson bottomed out a trey in the closing moments to keep Chapel Hill undefeated in league play (4-0), after an intense matchup took an extra period to decide a winner.
Bullard’s, Hunter Landrum nailed two of his four, 3-pointers in the overtime period. However it was all the scoring for the Panthers in the extra stanza. Landrum finished with a game-high, 19-points, adding in nine rebounds, four steals, and one block.
Early on, Zach Eschberger came off the bench red-hot, scoring all 11-points in the game in the first half as Bullard led 26-25 at the break.
The Bulldog defense stiffened in the overtime period to force four Panther turnovers that amounted to Bulldog points.
Big postman, Keith Minor was a force inside throughout the game scoring nine-points in each half to total out scoring a team-high, 18-points. Minor added 12-rebounds, three steals and two blocks.
Bulldog, Keilon Moore, canned 10 of his 12-points in the fourth quarter and in overtime to seal the win for head coach, Robert Sampson.
“I think our team speed was a key for us down the stretch of the game,” said Sampson after the game. “A few times it looked like we wanted to give the game away but we didn’t, the kids did a great job of playing aggressive but smart and it really paid off in the overtime.
