New Hampstead’s double OT win headlines busy night of local hoops


SAVANNAH, Ga. (WSAV) – Down six with 1:30 left in the fourth quarter, the New Hampstead boys basketball team hit a pair of threes to tie it up and outlasted Benedictine in double overtime Tuesday night. Alaris Wall, a senior point guard for the Phoenix, hit the second 3-pointer to send it to overtime and sealed the 70-61 win with a breakaway dunk.

Across the city, defending state champ Swainsboro traveled to Woodville-Tompkins for a clash between two of the top boys teams in Class 2A. Swainsboro picked up the regular season sweep of the Wolverines with a 79-67 win.

Meanwhile, the Statesboro boys paid a visit to 6A-Region 2 foe Effingham County. The Blue Devils, fueled by a 10-0 run to end the half, picked up a convincing 74-47 win and stayed perfect against the Rebels in the 2020-’21 season.

The Savannah Country Day girls basketball squad is off to one of its hottest starts in program history. Riding a 13-1 record into Tuesday’s game, the Hornets took care of business again with a 51-32 win over St. Vincent’s Academy.
