    We'll post updates, stats, photos (to come later) and more from the Class 5, Region D Tournament quarterfinals at North Stafford High School as the Wolverines play host to Potomac, a State Tournament fixture...

    You can see why schools such as Hampton University are already recruiting Swinton. He has offers in both football and basketball.

    This North Stafford team also features two football signees - Nana Asiedu (Rivals250 lineman headed to Penn State) and Devin Ravenel (James Madison University).

    That's big. Pullum, who came to the Panthers from Massaponax, is much needed in this one.

    Future remains bright for Keith Honore's crew. They don't re-build in Dumfries; they re-load.

    You feel like North Stafford should be up more than they are, but they've gotten a bit sloppy with the basketball.

    Very big foul - 3rd one - on North Stafford's Nana Asiedu. Will send Potomac's Jakhari Taylor to the line to shoot 2 as the Panthers trail North Stafford 25-20 with 4:09 left in the 3rdQ.

    3:03 to go 3rdQ - North Stafford 27, Potomac 21. Nick Pullum called for his 3rd foul on an offensive foul. That could be costly for Potomac. But Coach Keith Honore leaes him in, probably knowing he has to at this point.

    Both teams with 14 turnover through three quarters of play. Swinton is the best player on the floor in this one. If Potomac can neutralize him, they can steal this one at the end. The Wolverines must maintain their poise and composure, not play too out of control, and make sure they keep Asiedu as a factor in the paint.

    That's called making the football connection work on the hardwood.

    Boy, these Panthers from Potomac have hearts of Champions. No quit in them.

    Nana Asiedu with a put-back inside - North Stafford up 44-40 as we tick under 4 minutes to go.

    Now 3:29 to go - North Stafford 44, Potomac 42. Time-out Panthers after North Stafford turnover and basket by Julian Cumba.

    3:02 to play - Potomac 45, North Stafford 44. Julian Cumba - guess who - with a 3 to put the Panthers up. Has 21, 13 here in the 4thQ.

    But 4th foul called on Nick Pullum (Potomac's top rebounder). So both he and North Stafford's Nana Asiedu have 4 fouls.

    Scratch that now as the officials confer and change the foul from Pullum to Jaylen Williams, who now has 3. So 3 fouls on Williams and Pullum each.

    Devin Ravenel to shoot 2FT's. Both are good, NS back up 46-45.

    And it's Ravenel to shoot a pair of FT's.

    Time-out on the floor. This one has the feel of an overtime classic or a buzzer-beater. Great back-and-forth battle, particularly since the tail end of the 3rd period.

    Looked like Cody English might've gotten fouled after he rebounded a missed 3-point try.

    Going to OT.

    Ravenel sure could show a lot of kids - and adults - how to get it done at the charity stripe. Automatic tonight.

    1:57 left in OT - North Stafford 60, Potomac 59. Rejahn Woods with a steal and lay-in. Wolverines having trouble inbounding.

    Block came in transition with Potomac going in for a go-ahead lay-up off a steal. Just enormous.

    Another time-out. We have a photo finish in store it looks like. These two teams trading punches like a heavyweight battle. Unfortunate one won't move on because these two, in my opinion, are State Tournament worthy in a very deep Class 5 field.

    Wolverines throw it away. But with 0.2 seconds, all you can get is a tip-in, not a shot. Potomac would need a tip-in and to be fouled. North Stafford wins as long as they don't foul.
