Jaron Cornish muscled and tussled in a flash to the rim for six consecutive points, stealing momentum from Wellington in Champagnat Catholic’s 77-76 overtime victory Saturday in the Adidas Holiday Slam at Florida Christian. The Lions collected the championship hardware from the Derrick Rose bracket in the three-day, 16 team tournament.

“I was just being aggressive,” Cornish said. “If they tell me to go I just go every chance I got. It gives everyone going. When they see me going they go twice as hard as me. My teammates told me to step up and close it out.”

Oswald Parker had 25 points and 10 rebounds in the victory. Parker’s free throw with 16.9 seconds left in the game gave the Lions the go-ahead points.

“Jaron is great at getting to the basket and a great finisher,” Lions coach Daniel Serrano said. “At the end-of-the-game situations, we want to put the ball in his hands and get him up there, and it worked out for us [Saturday].”

The Lions trailed 38-35 at halftime and Wellington had four players with at least 10 points. Cornish had 23 points and Nashad Mackey had 22 points and 10 rebounds in the win.

▪ Calusa Prep 51, Chaminade-Madonna 42: Calusa Prep closed out the Adidas Holiday Slam by overcoming a strong effort from Chaminade-Madonna’s Josh Sanchez in a championship victory in the Dwight Howard bracket.

The Colts, who lost 66-48 to the Lions in November, faced a 21-18 halftime deficit. Sanchez had a game-high 23 points. Jhery Matos led the Colts with 19 points.

RECRUITING

Miami Booker T. Washington tight end Devonaire Clarington announced during Saturday’s U.S. Army All-American Bowl at the Alamodome in San Antonio that he has committed to Texas. He will wind up being college teammates with fellow Miami standout Tim Irvin of Westminster Christian, who also announced at the game that he would be attending Texas.

They were among nine players from across the country to commit during the game, which was won 39-36 by the West in front of a crowd of 35,687.

Wide receiver Lawrence Cager of Calvert Hall College High School in Baltimore was another one of the nine players to commit Saturday, and he announced his commitment to the University of Miami. Cager had a 54-yard touchdown catch for the East on Saturday.

Clarington and Irvin — the nephew of Michael Irvin — continued the Longhorns’ South Florida recruiting momentum. Texas also got commitments from Clarington’s Booker T. teammate, cornerback Davante Davis, Lakeland Victory Christian linebacker Cecil Cherry and Gilbert Johnson, a former Miami Southridge receiver who is currently at Georgia Prep Sports Academy in Atlanta.
