TRENTON, N.J. – With one of his teammates at the free-throw line cementing Mouth of Wilson (Va.) Oak Hill’s 73-64 victory over Elizabeth (N.J.) St. Patrick Saturday night at the Sovereign Bank Arena, Keith Gallon walked around midcourt, bellowing out a message for those along press row and the fans in general.
“Oak Hill [is] coming for the No. 1 spot,” said the Oklahoma-bound Gallon, who finished with nine points and 12 rebounds as Oak Hill, No. 3 in the RivalsHigh 100, improved to 34-0 by downing the No. 4 Celtics (20-3).
