Withrow with twenty points, his second twenty point game in as many nights.
- Withrow 69 Aiken 65: Another close call but thrilling win for the Tigers. In his first game against his former school Withrow star guard Aaron Thomas scored 20 points including several emphatic pull up threes; reminding Aiken of what they used to have. Thomas was on a mission tonight and overcame the ball-hawking defense of Gene Primus to have another big night; for the second night in a row AT also iced the game from the foul line with two makes with less then two seconds remaining. Carl Porter was huge again tonight for Withrow scoring 16 points on several strong lefty drives and pounding the offensive glass as usual. Also as usual, Porter was big on the defensive end blocking shots and grabbing boards. Withrow also got a good contribution from sophomore big man Devin Williams who scored 17 points and grabbed double digit boards. Devin was simply too much to handle down low for the undersized Aiken team. Aiken got a huge first half from Willy Moore, he scored 19 of his game high 27 in the first, and led at the break. Moore was on target from three and was able to finish in the lane in transition, including one dunk. In the second half Gene Primus and Landen Gaulden (who scored 11) kept Aiken alive but it wasn't enough to match Thomas and the Tigers. Austin Grimes scored 8 points for Aiken in limited time due to foul trouble.
Note: Top ten '13 prospect Time Coleman, a PG on the Withrow JV team, has really improved
his overall point guard skills particularly his ball-handling and passing. Everyone knows that
Tim can score, now that he is really a dual threat he is going to be very tough to contain.

Taft blew the game wide open in the third quarter thanks to their press which was led by Orlando Berry Jr, who scored 8, and Kadeem Palmer, who contributed 7 points.
