Will Taylor scored 10 of his game-high 24 points in overtime as Team South squeezed out an 86-79 win over Team North during 2007 McDonald's Roundball Classic boys game Saturday night at Hagerstown Community College.
"I did what had to be done," Taylor said. "I am bigger than anyone else, so I just muscled my way through there. We played hard and we left everything out on the court for the last game. We rebounded more and we played harder defense in overtime."
Chad Poffenberger started the overtime period by making a pair of foul shots for Team South. Ben Alencherry responded with a basket for Team North to even the score.
Team South outscored Team North 10-3 over the next three minutes to build an 83-76 lead with 1:45 remaining in OT as Taylor made five straight baskets during that stretch. Team North never got any closer than five points the rest of the way.
