Williams leads Richmond past Josey; sets up rematch with Laney Wednesday
Madison Williams scored 12 of his team high 17 points during a Richmond run that stretched two quarters, and eventually turned a 14 point first half deficit into a 62-58 Musketeer win over Josey in the semifinals of the Richmond County Christmas tournament. Chris Jones added 16 points. Dominique Hurst led Josey with 18.
Josey appeared to be in control early as Jonathan Butler scored 11 second quarter points, nailing 3 threes during a 14-0 run that put the Eagles ahead 29-15. But Richmond responded with a 16 minute long, 41-17 spurt punctuated with a three by Jones late in the fourth quarter that gave Richmond its biggest lead at 56-48.
