Team Griffin 16U Tops Team Takeover in Double OT Thriller to Win 2019 Peach Jam Championship
This was a game for the books! Blake Griffin even came out to support his young club. Throughout the tournament, Takeover always struggled in the first half, but today they came out hot and had a 9 point lead at the half. After facing a double-digit deficit, Team Griffin would rally and go on a 16-5 run to take the lead with about 6 minutes to play. TTO’s Jakai Robinson (28 pts), however, would step up and hit a few clutch shots to give his team the lead down the stretch. For Team Griffin, KJ Adams (23 pts) imposed his will to the basket at the end of regulation and in the two overtime periods, ultimately securing their championship win. TTO had quite a few chances to ice the game in regulation and OT, but came up short at the free throw line.
