O.C.: York, OLu work overtime for Holiday title
Senior guard Gabe York scored 30 points, eight of them in overtime after hitting a three-pointer at the buzzer at the end of regulation, to lead Orange Lutheran to a 68-60 boys' basketball victory over Foothill in the finals of the Orange Holiday Classic.
York's tournament MVP performance Friday at Chapman University helped the Lancers (10-2) salvage a game it almost lost. It didn't lead at any point in the fourth quarter against Foothill (12-2).
The Arizona-bound York scored 11 points in the first quarter and reportedly became his school's all-time leading scorer.
It was the second consecutive night that OLu was able to rally late to pull out a victory; it defeated Anaheim Canyon in the semifinals, 77-67, by outscoring the Comanches 26-11 in the fourth quarter.
Canyon took the third-place game with a 46-44 victory over Chino Hills.
