Sure, Angelina College head coach Todd Neighbors wanted to win, but trying out different looks with his new roster took precedence in Saturday’s game with Greater Houston Prep.

The Roadrunners, rotating lineups the entire game, held off a surprisingly tough Prep team 90-84 at Shands Gymnasium.

Corinthian Ramsey led the way with 24 points and five assists, Gary Blackston battled his way inside for a 12-point, 10-rebound double-double and Trenty Brinkley scored 11 points to lead AC to the home win. Kahari Beaufort and Shane Temara added nine points each.

Eric Bolding led GHP with 25 points and nine rebounds; Landin Brown added 16 points.

After opening up an 18-point first-half lead, AC began tinkering with different rotations with mixed results. GHP cut the Roadrunner lead to two points with just 41 seconds to play; but Ramsey and Trent Brinkley teamed up to go 6-for-6 from the free-throw line in the final seconds to seal the win.

The Roadrunners (2-2) will be the visitors on Tuesday as they visit Greater Houston Prep in Houston. Game time is 5 p.m.
