Dillard High School basketball forward Jordan Wright (41) dunks during a Kreul Classic game against Westminster Academy on Saturday, Dec. 17 at the Coral Springs Gymnasium.

When it’s money time, count on Dillard’s Jordan Wright.

The 6-6 senior forward went quiet through three quarters against Max Preps Basketball No. 23 Westminster Academy before scoring 10 of his 12 points in the fourth quarter to spark Dillard to a 63-58 victory at the Kreul Classic on Saturday at the Coral Springs Gymnasium.

It marked the Lions’ first loss of the season.

Westminster Academy (11-1) led 39-38 at the end of the third quarter before Wright lived up to his reputation as a crunch-time player in the fourth quarter with a lay-in, tip-in and highlight of the night — a dunk off a Stanley Garner miss — to push the lead to 56-47 with 1:45 left.

“At halftime coach [Darryl Burrows] said settle down; just let the game come to me,” said Wright. “That is what I did. My team needed me. We were down at the moment. My teammates trusted in me. They said just play my game. Westminster was doing a lot of talking. We had to do it to them.“

Raiquan Gray had 16 points to lead Dillard (9-2), but he sat as the Panthers’ superior depth fueled their run.

Westminster went up 34-25 in the third quarter with 4:10 left, when Paul Atkinson converted a put-back. Dillard answered with a 13-5 run to close to within 39-38 at the end of the third quarter as Gray hit a jumper and Bryce Oliver -- who provided a huge emotional boost with a block to preserve a 42-41 lead -- converted a layup off a steal.

Paul Atkinson led the Lions with 21 points. Jason Strong had 16 points, and Chase Johnston added 10 points.
