SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - It looked like it just wasn’t Country Day’s night. Until the shot fell.
The Hornets beat Benedictine 71-68 in overtime Saturday as Rhodes Pendarvis hit the miracle shot as time expired. It was a fitting end for what was already an improbable comeback from SCD.
The Cadets led by double digits most of the second half, including an 11-point advantage with less than two minutes to play.
But Country Day’s furious rally was complete when Pendarvis tied the game with a layup to force overtime. It was just his first heroic moment of the game.
The Hornets improve to 14-6 with the win, their eighth victory in a row. BC falls to 8-9 with the loss.
