By By BRUCE HIXON Sports Editor
Flomaton and Mary Montgomery joined Greenville and Pace as winners in the final day of the T.R. Miller Holiday Tournament Saturday.
Flomaton held off West Florida 80-73 for third place, while Mary Montgomery ripped Northview (Fla.) 64-34 for the consolation championship.
Flomaton 80, West Florida 73
Flomaton's 80-73 win over the West Florida Jaguars in Saturday's third place game was probably more exciting than it should have been.
The Hurricanes (11-2) had what appeared to be more than a safe lead, as they were up 19 points with just over two minutes to go. At that time, Flomaton coach Jarrod Green pulled his starting unit.
Green had to reinsert his starters, as West Florida trimmed that lead to just 76-73 with nine seconds to go. A three-point play by Alphonso Wesley helped preserve the Hurricanes' win.
C. J. Williams tallied 19 points to pace Flomaton, while Leon Johnson added 18. Nelson Rembert had a team high 12 points for West Florida (2-7).
