"We Back Pat" Night, Edition Four A Success

Friday night featured the fourth annual “We Back Pat” night at J.R. Tucker High School. The Tigers’ gym was decorated with posters and banners in honor of legendary Tennessee Volunteers women’s basketball coach Pat Summitt, in support of her and millions of other people’s ongoing battle with Alzheimer’s disease.
“I never would’ve imagined that a simple idea I brought up my freshman year would be something this big my senior year!” noted Annemarie Beran, “There truly are no words for how appreciative I am of not only my teammates but also the entire Tucker community!”
Students and fans of both Tucker and Hermitage packed the stands wearing purple “We Back Pat” t-shirts and a silent auction featuring an autographed picture of former Tennessee quarterback Peyton Manning ran throughout the evening. 100% of the night’s ticket sales, concession sales, and silent auction bids went towards The Pat Summitt Foundation for Alzheimer’s research.
The Tucker girls took on Hermitage in the first game of the night. The Tigers, led by Beran, played an intense fast tempo game, and put away the visiting Panthers with ease, 66-25. The dominant Tigers held Hermitage scoreless in the first 7 minutes of the contest, heading into quarter two with a sizable 18-3 lead. That lead would only grow and by the half Tucker held a 25 point advantage, leading over the Panthers 32-7. The second half would be no different, and Hermitage fell further and further behind before the final whistle blew.
Beran finished with a game high 21 points, and teammates Briana Payne and Tiera Johnson each put up 11. Victoria Cheatham led Hermitage with 11 points in a losing effort. “Throughout the game, we did a great job looking for easy transition points and setting each other up! Going into the end of the regular season, I hope we continue to play our game, but play with intensity from start to finish!” explained Beran.
The second match of the double header was next, as the #8 ranked Hermitage boys faced off against the Tucker boys. The game started close, but after 10 minutes it was all Hermitage thanks to numerous turnovers by Tucker and hot shooting by standouts Rahki Person and Robbie Osborne as the Panthers went on to win big, 74-29.
Hermitage jumped up early thanks to back to back treys by Person, but Tucker battled back to keep it close, 14-10 after one. After the first, it was all Hermitage for the rest of the game. The Panthers outscored the Tigers 21-4 in the second quarter thanks to 7 more points from Person and took a 33-14 into the half. Osborne picked up where Person left off in the second half, scoring 12 points before the final whistle. Hermitage would extend its lead to 53-21 by the fourth, and outscored Tucker 21-3 in the final quarter before winning 74-29.
Person finished with 18 points on the night. Osborne hit a layup with 2:54 left in the third quarter which marked his 1,001st career point as a Panther, he would finish with 17. Robbie Beran led Tucker with 8 points in the defeat.

The Panthers go on to play a doubleheader at Atlee on Monday February 1st, while Tucker will visit Maggie Walker for a double header on Tuesday February 2nd.

THE WRAP: Henrico Finally Grabs Holiday Hoops Title Again....

It was hard to believe Henrico Warriors basketball had captured two state championships since the last time they hoisted the trophy from their own holiday tournament.

But since their last Henrico Holiday Hoops title in 2012, head coach Vance Harmon's crew had won state championships in 2013 and this past March. In between? A pair of disappointing losses in their tournament championship, two years ago in overtime to the team that would later deny the Warriors a three-peat at the state level in Potomac, and, last year, a one-point loss to eventual 6A state champion Colonial Forge, the only blemish in a 28-1 campaign.

Between Henrico and the trophy was second-ranked St. Christopher's, who, at 11-0, were looking for their third tournament title this month, having won the Rebel Invitational at Douglas Freeman December 4th and the Times-Dispatch Invitational one week ago. Two future Richmond Spiders collided as St. Christopher's Nick Sherod battled Henrico's Monte Buckingham.

Each team had huge runs in the first half, which ended in a 40-40 deadlock. But Henrico pushed ahead at the outset of the third quarter, keeping the Saints at bay and sealing the win on the boards and at the free throw line for an 87-74 win for the title, and a 10-0 record.

The Warriors built an early 13-3 lead, and led 21-17 after a quarter. That's when St. Christopher's took off, bursting out to a 33-24 lead when, suddenly, a bank of lights which had been out much of the day inside the Henrico gym, but were restored late in the Third Place Game previously, won by Trinity Episcopal over Collegiate 60-46, went out again. Coaches, then referees conferred, joined by one of the men who had spent the afternoon working on the problem.

The teams decided to play on, and, thankfully, full lighting was quickly restored and remained for the rest of the game. Now it was Henrico clawing back into the game and, with a three-pointer from Richard Sanders just before the buzzer, the Warriors tied the game at 40-40 at intermission.

The Warriors again seized the early moments of a quarter, this time the third, building a cushion that the Saints could never erase, spending the rest of the night playing catch up. Sharp shooter Alex Petrie was held to 5-of-24 shooting from the field, hounded much of the night defensively by Jamal Newton, who played well despite some foul trouble. But it was Sanders who came up big in his role for Henrico, shooting 60 percent from the field, and 80 percent (4-of-5) from beyond the arc for 19 points.

The usual suspects, Sherod and Buckingham, led their teams in scoring, Nic with 29 and Monte with 28, making their future head coach, Chris Mooney, who was at the game, assumedly very happy. But, in the end, it was a simple matter of who was hot and who was not from the field. Henrico shot 57.7%, taking advantage of drives to the basket for easier shots, while St. Christopher's shot 37.3%, including 31% (9-of-29) from three-point range.

The Saints are 11-1 and will be a legitimate VISAA state championship threat. The Warriors now get ready for a busy first week of January that begins with a trip to always dangerous Douglas Freeman Monday and ends with a date against Lake Taylor Saturday night in the VirginiaPreps.com Classic at J.R. Tucker High School.

But, as Henrico trainer Rob Welch pointed out to this reporter as we left Guy Davis Court Wednesday night, the Warriors finished the calendar year of 2015 undefeated. They can only hope 2016 can be just as rewarding.
