From the CPS Holiday Classic at DePaul

Phoenix knocks off Farragut 70-62 as Terry Johnson scored 26 and J. Mills has 16 points and 18 boards

Already a half hour behind and that's after only one game

Three techs on players and it seemed like 1,000 free throws

Marshall has an 18-point lead in the third quarter but Eriq Harris went down with an ankle and didn't return
A box-and-one in the second half by Foreman slowed down Marshall star Darius Smith

Foreman coach Terrance Head after the game said "[Smith] already has my vote for Player of the Year."

Foreman rallies for a dramatic three-point win, scoring four points in the last 17 seconds -- a baseline jumper Tommy Woolridge gave the Hornets the led, then two free throws with 0.2 seconds to play put it away

After Crane beat Payton for the consolation title, Farragut knocked off Marshall 61-53
Harris didn't play

The title game in coming up on ME-TV (Ch 23 or 223 if you have Comcast digital)
