Dorman rallied from eight points down early in the second half to claim the American Division championship of the 18th annual Chick-fil-A Class with a 56-52 win over Greensboro Day. They’re the first team from South Carolina a title of the tournament since Hammond did in 2015.
American Division Most Outstanding Player PJ Hall scored 15 points with 11 rebounds and Justin Amadi added a team-high 18 points.
It was nip and tuck for most of the game. There were 13 lead changes and seven ties with the biggest lead by either team being eight points.
Greensboro Day (14-2) jumped to its eight-point lead early in the second half until Dorman and Hall took control. Hall was very active on the boards in the second half and had eight of his 11 rebounds after the break. His stick back basket with just over six minutes remaining tied it then he assisted on Myles Tate’s basket that gave the Cavaliers the lead for good.
Tate was named the Most Valuable Player. He finished with eight points, five assists and three steals.
N.C. State signee Cam Hayes scored a game-high 20 points for Greensboro Day.
