The Petersburg Cavaliers slipped into a double-digit hole, trailed at halftime, took a double-digit lead of their own on 15 straight points, fell into a closely contested battle for the lead in the final stretch and then narrowly edged the visiting Hampton Roads Warriors 95-92 for their first home game win in a wild seesaw of a matchup.

For Petersburg Cavaliers head coach Kyle Dixon , that seesaw "wasn't fun at all." Nevertheless, he was happy with the end result.

"We have about 16 players that can all play basketball, and the passion for them to get on the court ... is amazing," Dixon said while adding: "We've got to work better on being that sixth men on the bench."

While the back-and-forth was tough to endure, Dixon said that "you need these games."

"These type of games build character," he said. "The fact that we were able to be in a close game and come out [with] the victory is huge, it's very huge."

Robert Pinkston (6'2''-G) played a hero's game on Saturday, landing eight three-pointers and also scoring the two free throw points that put the Cavs ahead on the final lead change of the evening.

Pinkston credited his big outside shooting day to "very good ball movement" from point guards Cooper and Earl Gee (5'10''-PG, college: Longwood).

"They were just really finding me in transition," Pinkston said. "I was just getting in the rhythm early and I just felt good the whole game."

"He fits in the system," Dixon said of Pinkston. "He didn't force anything, he waited patiently, we got the ball to him, he was hot ... we made it happen."

He led the team with 29 points while Jamar Cooper made 14 and Lorenzo Bailey netted 11.
