Bulldogs win 56-53 on Brendan Styler's layup with five seconds to play...

Styler got by all of Bloom’s long arms and laid the ball in to give Richards a 56-53 miracle come-from-behind win over the No. 12 Blazing Trojans Saturday at the Hillcrest Shootout in Country Club Hills.

Bloom had a chance to tie at the buzzer, but Brian Conway missed a 28-foot three point attempt.

The Blazing Trojans led 28-9 in the first half and 42-27 early in the third quarter. The Bulldogs (9-0) clawed their way back throughout the second half, finally cutting the deficit to one on a three by Kodhamus Llonbey (18 points).

A handful of Richards players were late for a shoot-around, so coach John Chappetto changed his starting lineup. Llongbey and Carl Richards (eight points) both came off the bench.

Larry Dumas led Bloom (7-2) with 17 points and four steals. Jamal Daniel scored ten and 6-8 forward Delvron Johnson added eight points and 10 rebounds.
