Chapel Hill defeats Broughton 75-71 in OT

A scramble for a loose ball during the 2011 HighSchoolOT.com Holiday Invitational Basketball tournament Friday December 30, 2011.

Final: Chapel Hill 75 Broughton 71: The Chapel Hill Tigers storm back from down nine in the early fourth quarter to nab the HighSchoolOT.com Holiday Invitational Randolph Bracket Championship.  Chapel Hill remains unbeaten on the year after a thrilling come-from-behind win.  Denzel Ingram played like a man on fire for the Tigers, he dropped 43 points, with 33 of those coming in the second half.  He scored for the Tigers while points from other sources dried up in the late third and early fourth quarters to keep his team in the game.

Chapel Hill did a great job containing Devonte' Graham for Broughton who only managed 12 points in the championship game, all in the second half.  He exploded for 21 against Rocky Mount in the first round.  James Hemphill powered the Broughton attack tonight with 22 points, including two threes to open the scoring tonight.

Start of Overtime: Broughton 63 Chapel Hill 63: Broughton came within seconds of winning their fourth Holiday Invitational title as Denzel Ingram and the Chapel Hill Tigers stormed back from a nine point fourth quarter deficit to tie it at 63 and send it to overtime.  

Elliot Orenstein hit two free throws with 12 seconds left to tie it for the Tigers who did a good job of containing Devonte' Graham for much of the game.  Tigers' senior Denzel Ingram did everything he could to win it for his squad.  Ingram has been phenomenal and nearly won it for the Tigers in the closing minutes, as Chapel Hill turned up the defensive intensity on Broughton and nabbed two steals in the last two minutes that turned into points.

End 3rd Quarter: Broughton stretched their lead to 5 at 45-40 headed to the fourth quarter as Devonte' Graham and Parish Crowder both got going with 4 points a piece.  They helped spark an 8-2 Cap run that got Broughton's lead to 8 points.

The Caps are doing a good job on the boards here in the third as they continue to hold Chapel Hill to one-and-done on the defensive end, and have had some crucial offensive boards that extended possesions and the Broughton lead.  With the extended possessions, both Graham and Hemphill got their drive-and-dish game going.

Ingram had 10 points in the quarter, to bring him to 20 for the game, almost single-handedly keeping the scoring going for Chapel Hill, trying to keep the Tigers in the game as the methodical Caps work their system.

Halftime: Chapel Hill clawed ahead briefly on two Elliot Orenstein free throws with 34 seconds to play in the half, but Chase Johnston of Broughton came back down the floor and answered for the Caps to give Broughton a 25-24 halftime lead over undefeated Chapel Hill.

The Tigers did a better job on Hemphill in the second quarter, as Chapel Hill held the junior to just a single point in the quarter after 9 of the Caps 13 in the first.  Chapel Hill was able to stop the penetration that Hemphill had been able to get in the first quarter and keep the Caps contained to the perimeter for for the most part.  That led to several Broughton turnovers, and the Tigers got another 5 point quarter out of Denzel Ingram, who is now in double figures with 10. 

Devonte' Graham of Broughton has been completely silent here in the first half.  He's yet to scratch the scoresheet after 21 points against Rocky Mount.

Chapel Hill put on a show in the third quarter against Clayton to pull away from the Comets and cruise to a victory in their first game of the Holiday Invitational.  Broughton was fairly consistent throughout their first contest of the tournament, the Caps rotate a lot of players into the lineup, so we'll see if the fresh legs will help hold the explosive Tigers squad at bay.

Halftime Stats:

Broughton: Justin Coleman - 4 points

James Hemphill - 10 points

Andrew Ocampo - 2 points

Cameron Gottfried - 5 points

Chase Johnston - 4 points

Chapel Hill: Anthony Vanhook - 4 points

Denzel Ingram - 10 points

Elliot Orenstein - 8 points

Dillon Winters - 2 points

End 1st Quarter: It has been a game of runs early here in the Randolph Bracket Championship game.  It was the James Hemphill show early for the Caps as the junior hit two threes right out of the chute to give the Caps an 6-0 advantage. Chapel Hill answered with a 7-0 run of their own to give the Tigers a one point lead. That run initiated by Elliot Orenstein's three off the wing.  Broughton responded with 7 unanswered before Denzel Ingram buried a three to end the quarter with the Caps up 13-10. 

Hemphill has been a beast early in this one. Do not let the two early threes fool you, he's been putting in work in the paint as well.  He's been able to penetrate the Chapel Hill defense and open up some lanes and shots for teammates.  Hemphill has 7 points after a quarter of play.  Ingram is doing his part to keep Chapel Hill around as well.  He's got half of the Tigers 10 first quarter points.

Pregame: Broughton and Chapel Hill will do battle for the Randolph Bracket Championship of the HighSchoolOT.com Holiday Invitational at 5:40 at the Holliday Gym on the campus of Broughton High School this evening.  Broughton (6-5) got through Rocky Mount 68-54 in the first round of the tournament, thanks to a 21 point night from Devonte' Graham and a 16 point performance James Hemphill.

Broughton is playing to win their first Holiday Invitational title since 1986. "This is a great opportunity for these kids to go into our midseason break, halfway through the season, on a high note," Broughton coach Jeff Ferrell said. "It's pretty important to win this kind of thing."

Broughton will need to be on top of their game as they face undefeated Chapel Hill who dispensed of Clayton 64-42, in the first game of the four-team Shavlik Randolph Foundation portion of the HighSchoolOT.com Holiday Invitational. The Tigers (12-0) got behind 19-10 moments into the second quarter, but stormed ahead to take a 26-22 halftime advantage. Theyl increased their lead to 50-32 after three quarters, thanks to a back-breaking 24-10 period

"I thought we showed great composure there and stayed patient within our offense," Chapel Hill coach Tod Morgan said of his team's comeback. "I thought we were getting good looks early on, but we just weren't making any shots. We didn't panic and I think that's maybe the sign of a veteran team."

Chapel Hill senior Denzel Ingram scored his 1,000th career point at the end of the first quarter and finished with a game-high 19 points. Anthony Vanhook added 15 points and 10 rebounds for the Tigers.
