Marion: Wins South Seven Conference Opener at Mt. Vernon Saddoris Lifts Wildcats over Mt. Vernon


Byline: JUSTIN WALKER jwalker@dailyrepublicannews.com

Schafer allowed Marion to take a 33-28 lead into the fourth.

Saddoris hit a pair of free throws and then turned a steal into a layup after the Rams again scored four straight, then Lacy split a pair of tosses for a 37-32 lead.

Seconds later, at the 4:41 mark, Lacy was called for his fifth foul while jumping for an inbounds pass and left the game with 17 points.

Mt. Vernons Zach Williams drilled a trey and Marion answered when Henderson scored off a nifty pass from Jackson Connor, then Houston drilled a huge 3-pointer from the corner to put Marion up 42-37 with 1:40 remaining.

"That was a huge shot," Gillespie said. "Korey had to play when Jaden went out and I thought Korey grew up a lot in that stretch."

A runner by OShea Hardin and another triple by Williams around a missed bonus try from Saddoris tied the score and Mt. Vernon went in front on a breakaway slam dunk by Amir Spann with 30 seconds left.

But the Wildcats turned to Saddoris, who made it to the foul line and made the first with 17.7 left but missed the second. Schafer dove on the floor and got the ball to David Fletcher, who lobbed a pass to Henderson that allowed Gillespie to call timeout with 9.3 showing on the clock.

Saddoris put in the winning basket with his baseline drive and the game ended on an awkward sliding shot by Williams at the buzzer.

Lacys 17 points were a game-high. Saddoris and Henderson both finished with eight. Schafer had four and both Houston and Connor had three.

"We managed to find a way without Jaden on the floor," Gillespie said. "Hes so electric and does so many things for us but hes also a great teammate. He was on the bench coaching it up."

Williams, Hardin and Spann all had nine points for the Rams. Weston Brockhouse hit a pair of 3-pointers in Mt. Vernons early run but ended the game with eight points.

"Any time you win on the road in this conference," Gillespie said, "youve got to appreciate it."

A few miles up the road, Centralia beat Carbondale, 57-48, behind a 24-point performance from Jordan Maines that included six 3-pointers, to improve to 5-0 and 1-0 in the South Seven. …
