Phoenix outscores Sweet Home — again

PHOENIX — A little less than two weeks ago the Phoenix football team hosted Sweet Home.

It was the basketball team's turn on Thursday night, when the Pirates used a late run to outlast the Huskies, 61-44, in the opening round of the Phoenix Invitational.

"There was a little blood in the air," Phoenix coach Glenn Johannes joked.

Thanks to Phoenix's successful run into the Class 4A state playoffs, which ended last Saturday in the semifinals, the Pirates have only been able to practice twice together. That was evident early on Thursday when Phoenix missed its first 10 3-pointers and entered the fourth quarter tied, 39-all.

However, that changed at the start of the fourth quarter when the Pirates scored on their first four possessions and held Sweet Home without a bucket for several minutes, using a 13-0 run to break open the close game.

Phoenix outscored the Huskies, 22-5, in the fourth quarter and will face Tenison Woods, a traveling team from Australia, at 6:45 p.m. today.

"The score doesn't reflect how close that game was actually," Johannes said. "(In the) second half we started attacking the rim finally, and that was the difference."

Tyler Dungannon scored a team-high 18 points and Alex Young added 15 points and eight rebounds for the Pirates (2-0).

Teammate Skyler Reagan had 12 points and four assists.
