ATLANTA, GA – Another game, another overtime thriller at the Jump Ball Jam Classic at Georgia Tech on Saturday afternoon. Dunwoody needed an extra four minutes to put Milton away 60-58.
Senior forward Taylor Brown tipped in an offensive rebound to give Dunwoody (1-0) the last second victory. The 6-foot-5 forward was at the right place at the right time as he secured the loose ball and threw up the shot as the buzzer sounded.
Dunwoody, the two time 3A state champs, looked lethargic throughout the game. Less than a week after beating Norcross, one of the top teams in the nation, in a scrimmage, Dunwoody didn’t seem to have any focus throughout the game.
Senior Bobby Perdue led Dunwoody with 13 points while junior guard Pierre Jordan added 12 points as did Georgia bound guard Zac Swansey. Brown added seven.
Connor Nolte, a Furman signee, was outstanding in defeat for the Lions. The 6-foot-6 lefty scored a game high 31 points and was unconscious in the first half, scoring at will. Milton had a strong 17 from senior guard Tony Smith.
