LYNCHBURG — The Fluvanna County boys basketball team improved to 6-0 with a 59-53 overtime victory over Brookville in the most closely contested of the five boys contests in the ninth-annual Beacon Basketball Classic, Saturday night at E.C. Glass.

Bees junior guard Ben Hogg’s hanging jumper off an inbounds pass with 0.9 seconds left in regulation tied the game at 49 and forced overtime. But the Flying Flucos took control in the four-minute extra period, matching their 10-point output in the fourth quarter.

Jalen Harrison split two defenders and finished a drive down the left of the lane to tie it at 51 under the three-minute mark before finishing an inside feed from Dorian Butler in the left post and drilling a jumper from the left wing to lift Fluvanna to a 55-51 lead.

He scored the Flucos’ first seven points of the overtime and finished with a game-high 23 points, one more than Vincent Agee, who capped the scoring with two free throws after being fouled on a fast break.

Hogg, the leading receiver on Brookville’s Group AA, Division 3 state championship football team, paced the Bees (0-2) with 19 points, shooting 8-for-9 from the foul line.
