Chicago Sun-Times - - Sports - BY JOE COSENTINO

‘‘My team needed me, so I had to come through in the clutch,’’ Hill said. ‘‘The game is men­tal, so we played tough to win and move up in the Red-South.’’

Cur­tis Jones (15 points) hit a pair of free throws with 1:40 left to give Orr a 66-64 lead. But Dar­ian Malone (16 points, five re­bounds) sparked a 9-2 Far­ragut run with a run­ner with 1:18 to play.
