The 10 day second July Live period seems to gp on for two long with game after game for the players and the coaches. Sometimes it seems like it would never end.
That's the way it seemed Sunday night at Albright College in Reading Pennsylvania in the End of Summer Classic. After a long day of basketball, the championship contest in the 17 & Under Platinum bracket featured the Playaz versus New Heights and the players on the floor didn't want it to end as it went into three overtimes before the Playaz emerged with a 64-63 win.
6-foot-8 St. Anthony's Sr. Kyle Anderson scored on an old fashioned 3 point play with :26 remaining to tie the contest at 57 and force the first extra session.
In the third overtime 6-foot-5 Villanova bound Sr. Savon Goodman hit 1 of 2 free throws for the win.
Anderson was named MVP with 13 points, 11 rebounds, 5 assists and 4 steals. Goodman had 17 and 8.
6-foot-2 Nia Prep bound Tyquan Goodlet was tough to contain off the bounce and finished with a game high 27 for New Heights.
Coaches on hand to watch Anderson, NJ Hoops #1 prospect included Billy Donovan (Florida), Kevin Willard (Seton Hall) and St. John's assistants.
