Montrose Christian Defeats Oak Hill To Win in Double Overtime 71-64

When the final buzzer sounded, one Montrose Christian player darted for his family in the seats. Another claimed the championship trophy and walked around the court with it held high above his head. Two teammates cried. Another proudly waved his home country’s flag. Top-ranked Montrose Christian had just outlasted Oak Hill Academy, 71-64 in double overtime, to win the National High School Invitational basketball tournament on Saturday at Georgetown Prep. “That was a great basketball game,” Montrose Christian Coach Stu Vetter said. “Anybody who didn’t enjoy that game can go somewhere else.” Tournament most valuable player Tyrone Johnson’s driving basket with 16 seconds left forced overtime for the Mustangs (25-1). Then forward Justin Anderson — a secondary option on the play — made a three-pointer from the right side with two seconds left to force another extra four-minute period.

“I must say, that’s the biggest shot of my life,” said Anderson, a junior who last month committed to Maryland. “Actually. . . [the defender] had his hand up and made a great contest and the ball rubbed off his hand a little bit. The ball I shot, it might have been a little long but with the help of his hand it was all net.” Finally, Tyler Hubbard’s three-pointer in the second overtime and a spinning basket in the lane by Venezuelan native Michael Carrera gave Montrose Christian some breathing room.
