Cameron Jordan made a free throw with 20 seconds to play, and the Marietta defense held Carrollton without a shot on its final possession as the Blue Devils won the championship game of the Carrollton Christmas Tournament 62-59 on Saturday.

Trailing 47-44 heading to the final period, Marietta (12-1) forced a couple of turnovers that led to easy baskets, which allowed the Blue Devils to reclaim the lead. They extended the advantage to five points before holding on for the win.

Tyrell Tomlin, who played in the Cobb All-Star Senior Bowl earlier in the day, had 14 points and went 2-of-3 from the free-throw line in the final 90 seconds. Raynere Thornton had 11 points, and Jordan finished with 15.

Allatoona 62, Columbia (Ala.) 44: The Buccaneers had three double-digit scorers and advanced to the championship of the Jaguars Classic in Hoover, Ala.

Allatoona (7-0) will face either tournament host Spain Park or Tuscaloosa County for the title Monday.

The Buccaneers had a successful start, taking a 13-point lead into halftime.

Daniel Fowler led Allatoona with 18 points, nine rebounds and three steals, while Rodney Brown added 16 points and 10 rebounds. Bradley Brevet finished with 11 points, five rebounds and three steals.

Dominion Christian 56, Unity Christian 14: The Knights took a 17-point lead out of the first quarter and never let up.

Jordan Dorsey led Dominion (4-4) with 18 points and four assists, while Sheldon Robyck had eight points.

GIRLS BASKETBALL

Campbell 63, Mount Zion-Jonesboro 47:
The Lady Spartans used a 16-0 fourth quarter run to pull away in the semifinals of Henry County’s Chuck Miller Holiday Tournament.

With the win, Campbell (7-2) will face the winner of Saturday’s Henry County-Dutchtown game in Monday’s championship.

Julie McKee led the Lady Spartans with 16 points, four rebounds and five steals. Miranda McClure finished the night with 11 points and 11 rebounds.

Lithia Springs 55, Harrison 50: Missing three starters, and playing with just seven healthy bodies in all, the Lady Hoyas still managed to keep close at the Carrollton Christmas Tournament.

Without Kaylyn Brooks, Zoe Guilmette and Tobi Woghiren, Harrison looked for someone else to step up and got it from Sydne Wiggins.

Wiggins, a freshman, scored a team-record 37 points. She went 13-for-28 from the field — making six 3-pointers — and was 9-for-13 at the line.
