Class AAAAAA boys: Pebblebrook 57, Shiloh 47

Jared Harper scored 14 of his game-high 20 points in the second half to lead Pebblebrook to the Class AAAAAA finals with a 57-47 win over Shiloh.

The Falcons led by only 4 at halftime, but came roaring out of the locker room with an 11-2 run that built the lead out to 42-29, and Pebblebrook never trailed again.

It appeared that the Falcons were cruising when they went up 50-39 with 4 minutes left in the game, but Shiloh suddenly found the great equalizer -- the 3-pointer.

Long-range bombs from Malik Chandler and Kareem Brewton on consecutive possessions slashed an 11-point deficit to 5 and gave the Generals a shot with less than 4 minutes remaining.

But Harper had the answer, hitting a 3-pointer of his own to stretch the lead back out to 8. Then a dunk on the next possession by Georgia commit Derek Ogbeide sealed it as the clock ticked well under 3 minutes.

Clemson commit Ty Hudson had 14 points, and Ogbeide finished with 12. Joshua Okogie scored a team-high 19 points for Shiloh in the loss.
