CHARLOTTESVILLE—Tidewater Academy senior Mike Greene made a career high 33 points during the Warriors’ last-second 50-48 loss to Covenant on Saturday.

“It was a very heartbreaking loss,” said Warrior Coach Walter Westbrook, noting the Warriors led for all but one minute of the non-conference game.

Covenant and Tidewater Academy tied up the game 48-48 with 55 seconds left. The Warriors turned over the ball at the 30-second mark.

“We fouled their kid shooting with 1.3 seconds to go, and he made two free-throws for the win, Westbrook said.

Junior Lamonte Moore made 11 rebounds

In a Friday night non-conference game against Tandem Friends during the weekend roadtrip, Green scored 22 points to lead the Warriors to a 54-40 win.

“We got off to a sluggish start and struggled until the second half when he finally got a big enough cushion to put the game away,” Westbrook said.

Moore led with 10 rebounds.

Tidewater Academy is 10-3 overall and 4-1 in the Virginia Commonwealth Conference.
