Foxes win first round of Christmas tournament

In celebration of the 2008 Christmas basketball tournament at King George High School, the Foxes held on to defeat the Laplata Warriors. The Foxes led by as much as 13 in the fourth quarter, but the Warriors refused to give up and managed to make life more than interesting for the Foxes in the remaining seconds. Senior, forward Donta Smith had a big game with 16 points, while teammate D.J. Lewis poured in 14 points. Brandon Shelton and Antwane Lewis added 11 points a piece to advance the Foxes into the championship round against Chancellor.
The Warriors were led by point guard Joey Davis with 21 points and Juan Wells with 17 points.
First quarter
From start to the final seconds, the game was an all out brawl with King George standing tall when the dust finally settled. The Foxes broke away early in the first quarter with a 8-0 run and sustained their lead by dominating both the offensive and defensive boards. With less than a minute left in the first quarter, Lewis dropped a 3-point bomb from long range to give the Foxes a 23-12 lead.
Second quarter
Smith and Lewis took turns penetrating the Warriors defense, giving the partisan Fox fans a reason to cheer and a sizeable 10-point lead going into the second half. Robert Fuquo scored six points for the Warriors cutting the lead by 3 points.
Third quarter
The Warriors must had a second helping of verbal vitamins from their coach at halftime, because they came out with a 7-0 run, cutting the Fox lead to 42-39. Midway into the third quarter, the Foxes shifted into fourth gear, with Antwane Lewis taking the Foxes on a 6-0 run—and extending their lead to 63-50.
The few fans that left early missed an exciting ending, as the Warriors rallied back from a 13 point deficit to cut the Fox lead to 78-75 with less than 40 seconds remaining in the game. After an exchange of 10 possessions in less than 32 seconds, the Foxes held on to defeat their visitors from Maryland by three points [80-77].
Results of the consolation game and the championship game featuring King George and Chancellor were not available due to press deadlines.
