Jared Morse sank the tying and go-ahead free throws with 24 seconds left in the game to give the Nansemond-Suffolk Academy Saints a 39-38 win Friday against Collegiate in boys basketball action in Richmond.

The Saints were down six at the end of the first quarter, but they rallied in the second to pull ahead 24-19. They retained a four-point lead through the third quarter, but the Collegiate team continued to press through the fourth quarter, putting the outcome in question until Morse’s free throws sealed the game for the Saints.

Breon Willie chipped in 12 points for Nansemond-Suffolk, and Brandon Addison added 11 points to the effort.
