The Christo­pher Dock boys bas­ket­ball team ral­lied from 15 points down to de­feat rp­per merkiomen 44-43 Thurs­day night in WKH fiUsW URunG RI WKH CKULsto­pher Dock Hol­i­day Tour­na­ment.

Cen­ter Na­jee Miller was a ma­jor force in­side for Dock, scor­ing a team-high 12 points.

With just 4.6 sec­onds to go, Dock’s Sean Hin­son stole an in­bounds pass and then dished it to Miller, who was then fouled on his way to the hoop.

With just three tenths of a sec­ond to play in reg­u­la­tion and the score tied 4343, Miller had a chance to win it.

“My heart was beat­ing fast,” Miller said, smil- ing.

The big guy came through for the mioneers ( 3- 2), hit­ting his first shot to put Dock ahead 4443, and af­ter rp­per merk grabbed the re­bound on Miller’s sec­ond foul shot, the In­di­ans called time out and had maybe just enough time for a des­per­a­tion heave. How­ever, the en­su­ing in­bounds pass was knocked out of bounds by Dock’s Azariah marmer as time ran out.

Chan­dler Junk scored a game-high 1T points for rp­per merk, in­clud­ing a three­p­ointer that put the In­di­ans (2-6) ahead 31-16 in the third, but Dock would con­trol play for most of the sec­ond half.
