BRAY'S DOUBLE-DOUBLE POWERS PRIME TO VICTORY OVER TITANS in OT - Dec 16, 2012

DeAndre Bray
Atlanta, G.A. -- DeAndre Bray (5'6''-G-85, agency: Gamble Sports Management, college: Jacksonville St.) isn't sure when the Georgia PRIME will lose again.

For now he's not going to think about and just enjoy the ride.

Bray had 25 points and 10 assists as the PRIME defeated the Atlanta Titans 121-118 in overtime Saturday night for their season opener.

Derrick Allen (6'5''-G/F-85, agency: Pro One Sports, college: Valdosta St.) caught fight late in the 2nd half scoring a game high 27 points on 5-8 shooting from the three. Former college teammate Mike Crain (6'2''-G-84, college: Valdosta St.) added 17 points including the game saving three pointer to take the team into overtime. Rahshon Turner (6'7''-F/C-75, college: Fair Dickinson) and Brandon Thomas (6'6''-F-86, college: UNC Pembroke) added 20 points each along with a game high 12 boards for Turner.

It was a thing of beauty to watch these two teams play at such a high level but the PRIME prevailed at the end for it's franchises first victory.

PRIME coach Michael Davis said his team certainly didn't play its best game by any stretch, but fought back in the clutch to pull out a thrilling win in overtime.

"I think it's a good sign for us that we're found a way to win," Davis said. "Everyone is contributing, locking really hard when we need to and making sure we're consistent on some things. We just got to get a little sharper.

"You know we missed a lot of easy shots tonight, a lot of layups, a lot of floaters, a lot of fast breaks -- things we usually convert. But we battled. We got stops at the end and that is what counts." Mike Crain, Bray and Allen really saved us in the OT.

Tay Barber (6'0''-G-86, college: Life) had 27 points and six assist and Jamal Johnson (6'7''-F-81, college: Clayton St.) chipped in with 25 points to lead the Titans, who lost a 13 point lead in the 4th.

The Titans led 98-85 entering the fourth quarter and dominated the 3rd after a show time dunk by Tony Omotayo (6'5''-F-85, college: Ft.Valley St.). Omotayo followed up by knocking down a 3 straight baskets before leaving the game. He finished with 15 points, 7 rebounds and 3 blocks but only played 28 minutes.

The Titans look like a very dangerous team that needs to learn to close but still look impressive. Tay Barber is a force also with rookie Chris Vanlandingham (6'4''-G-89, college: Armstr.Atlantic) who was the teams top assist man with 7.

Below you will find the box scores. Game links will be posted next week.
