P.J. Torres
P.J. Torres (6'3''-G-93) rolled out 40 points and the Petersburg Revolution basketball team pulled away in the closing stages to trump Fayetteville Crossover for the second time this week, winning 135-116.
The Revolution has now won six straight and is gearing up for a third consecutive Saturday where they will defend their home court at the Rock Church of Petersburg.
Coming to Petersburg on April 30 is Winston-Salem Certified, the team responsible for the Revolution's sole loss through their first seven games of 2016.
The Revolution players' most recent battle to improve to 6-1 wasn't an easy one, as they fell behind 2-12 in the first four minutes of the game and then lost the lead again in the third quarter before rolling past the Crossover and steadily growing their lead with Torres heading the charge in the fourth.
"As time goes on, we're just building chemistry. Earlier in the season, if something like that happened in the first half, we probably would have crumbled and probably lost by 20," Torres said. "But since there's so much chemistry and believing in each other ... if we start off 20-0, we're all looking each other like 'We're good' ... look down the line, go to the next person, let him know we're good and we just keep playing until the clock hits zero."
Petersburg had also beaten the Crossover in a narrower contest on Sunday in Fayetteville, N.C. with a final score of 121-116.
"It was definitely a challenge ... trying to beat a team twice is always hard, especially when you're playing them back-to-back," Torres said. "But we came in, we accepted the challenge, we embraced it ... we said we've got to go hard just like last game, but even more because we knew they were going to bring it.
"We just turned it up another level and we came out with the win."
Head coach Kyle Dixon said they had to make sure they knew that it wasn't easy the first time they played Fayetteville.
"We can't take this team for granted. [We had] to make sure we kept everything basic ... move the ball around, keep the teammates involved," Dixon said. "We also had a huge engagement from the bench. Our bench players ... were very active and very communicative [on] what they saw on the floor."
Facing a talented squad in the Crossover with Raymond McKeithan matching Torres' 40 points, the Revolution turned up the outside shooting and overcame the opponent in the latter stages of each half.
"The more aggressive we are on defense, the more we make them frustrated," Dixon said. "We got a lot of stops, we got them frustrated and we got a lot of easy buckets."
Torres, who fired in several three-pointers including back-to-back treys on the Revolution's breakaway bid in the second quarter, credited his teammates for fueling his outside shooting game.
"Making shots just becomes contagious once you see other people on your team doing it," Torres said. "Just domino effect."
Team plays led to several buckets, as Petersburg notched its first two points off of James Shambley nabbing the steal and then bouncing the ball to Torres, who blasted it through on the dunk.
The Revolution straightened up after the timeout call with eight minutes left in the first quarter. The blistering speed and three-point shots of Earl Gee II sparked Petersburg's first rally as his teammates turned his passes into baskets and he briefly sent his team to the point on the trey.
Cedric Kwindja netted the ball off the rebound, Tyre Desmore rocketed in the one-armed dunk and Torres made the two-pointer as the Revolution went back and forth with the Crossover for the lead near the top of the second. After Fayetteville netted the three-pointer early and often, the shots from behind the arc kept coming from Petersburg in the second quarter as they broke away to lead 66-55 at the half.
Fayetteville charged back into the picture, taking back the point (79-78) off the three-pointer with six minutes to play in the third. The two teams traded the lead until three-pointers from Reggie Cherry and Deshon Dabbs put them up 92-89 at the end of the third quarter. From there, Torres helped pull the Revolution outside of the visitors' reach.
"It's amazing what we have here, the potential that we have here and we have a means to really bring a name to Petersburg, Virginia," Dixon said.
Behind Torres, Gee scored 15 points, followed by Cherry with 14, Dabbs with 12, Kwindja and Desmore with 11 each and William Mackey with nine.
Petersburg's only loss on the season came in their first-ever game as a team against their upcoming opponent Winston-Salem Certified. The margin of loss was listed at five points.
That loss was also on the road. There is one place where the Revolution remains unbeaten.
The Rock Church of Petersburg.
"We're home," Dixon said. "We're going to defend our undefeated home record."
