In a terrific back-and-forth game, Columbia Christian (Portland, Ore.)
senior Kameron Chatman
, the MaxPreps Holiday Classic's top college recruit, drilled a 3-pointer with 3.1 seconds left in overtime to defeat De La Salle (Concord, Calif.)
De La Salle senior Justin Hill
had given the Spartans a 51-50 lead with a 3-pointer from the corner with 30 seconds left in the extra period. Chatman, a transfer from Long Beach Poly, dribbled for 15 seconds, eventually backing in near the free throw line. He passed quickly out to Israel Hammond
, who immediately handed the ball back to Chatman, who drilled the 3-pointer.
De La Salle called timeout with 1.2 seconds left and got a shot off at the buzzer under heavy duress by Jordan Ratinho missed.
Chatman, a 6-foot-8 forward/guard and the nation's No. 36 senior recruit according to 247Sports, finished with 28 points and Idaho-bound Arkadiy Mkrtychyan
had 20. Patrick Marr
and Nikhil Peters
led De La Salle with 10.
"When it left my hands I thought it was too strong," Chatman said. "This is the first time I've ever made a game-winning 3-pointer. It feels great."
