Evans proves he's clutch
February 21, 2012Tri-Nine Conference
CARY - Whether it was overtime or at the end of regulation, Apex sophomore T.J. Evans proved he has the poise of a someone much older.
After Green Hope's Ches Edwards hit a 3-pointer with 42 seconds to go put Green Hope's boys on top 55-52, Evans answered almost immediately with a 22-footer.
"It was just as clutch as anything could be for a conference tournament game," Apex coach David Neal said.
Green Hope held the ball for the last 37 seconds, but Chris Flemmings' 3-pointer clanked off the front rim to send the game to overtime. That's where Apex finally pulled away.
The Cougars claimed the Tri-Nine tournament title with a 68-60 overtime victory Friday night. Apex also won the conference championship, given to the regular season winner.
