Charlottesville’s boys went back and forth with Monticello Friday night and trailed by two heading into the fourth quarter.
That’s when Immanuel Wells got going on offense and the Black Knights’ defense shut down the Mustangs to the tune of a 16-6 advantage in the frame and a 53-45 victory over Monticello.
Wells finished with 22 points, scoring eight of those in the fourth. The Black Knights got to the line throughout the fourth and after not hitting free throws was an Achilles’ heel for them against Louisa earlier this week, they connected on enough (8-for-14) to get the job done.
Isaiah Washington scored 14 points, going 8-for-12 at the charity stripe. Wells went 6-for-8 at the line.
Dean Lockley led Monticello with 14 points while Thad Lane had nine and Koby Copeland chipped in eight. The Mustangs went 15-for-19 at the free throw line.
Charlottesville’s boys travel to Orange Tuesday while the Mustangs travel to take on Powhatan.
