North Wins Thriller Against South

North overcame a 10 point halftime deficit to defeat their rivals 49-46.  In the first half South was able to slash to basket for layups.  Preston Jackson, who is a presence in the post, got 2 fouls early and sat out most of the 1st half.  When he got back on the court in the 2nd half, he slowed down the pace of South's scoring.  South had to make some adjustments themselves, trading in a man to man defense for a box and 1 to slow down North's Dillon McCullough. It was the inside game of South vs the outside shooting of North. The intense game came down to the final minute - with fans from both sides raising the roof -it was bedlam.  McCullough tied the game at 46 all with a free throw with about a minute left. Then Jackson, who had not scored the entire night, scored on a layup with 14 seconds left and was fouled - he sunk the free throw for the final margin of victory.
